The duo met in 2005 when Brennan moved to Denver, Colorado from Melbourne, Australia. Their passion for music and creativity fueled their early music experimentation into different music genres.
From the beginnings of Brennan and Sean's music experimentation in "The Shed," to their involvement in the music outreach charity, 1LiquidHouse, to nighttime jam sessions with friends, and taking time to explore their individual music interests, their music style and talent has continued to grow and evolve.
"We have found that music gives us the ability to capture a specific moment in time, the emotions that we feel as we feel them, the lessons that we learn while we are learning them. We all have albums or songs that capture an emotion or event we experience in certain stages of our lives and when you hear that song years later, you feel all of those emotions flood through again. The goal in our music is to engage your emotions and take you for a ride."
The two have remained friends throughout the years and continued to explore their own musical interests. In 2008, Sean moved to Los Angeles, California after to pursue his love of music full time while attending the Musicians Institute of Hollywood. The two eventually reunited in 2011 and collaborated on various projects before creating AMZY in 2013. Foxfield Four drummer, Wes Barton and bassist, Nick Billings joined the band in 2014.
"As we developed into AMZY, we realized that staying in an exclusive genre doesn't symbolize the freedom we have in finding our identity. Our music has an ever-evolving living breathing soul that finds life and inspiration in the stories surrounding us. AMZY is the outcome of a lot of experimentation between our styles," says Brennan, "we always start on two sides of influence and work to build a bridge to something we like."
AMZY won the KTCL Channel 93.3 Demo Derby Finale in June 2014 and their first song "Time to Change" debuted on the radio on June 27th, 2014. Their single "5 to Midnight" was selected for the KLTC Channel 93.3 Hometown for the Holidays top 11 and lead to them win Hometown for the Holidays 2014!
AMZY has since released their EP album "We Dont Walk, We Dance EP" on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, Beats and more. They have also played the famous 93.3 Garage in conjunction with their EP release party at Moe's BBQ Englewood on January 23rd, 2015. Their EP album titled "We Don't Walk, We Dance" was produced by Joe Richmond of band Churchill features five songs including the title track "We Don't Walk, We Dance", "5 to Midnight", "Kiss Before You Bite", "Dirty Little Liar" and "Feet on the Ground."
"We wrote 5 minutes to midnight as a monument to the youthful mindset that we often abandon when we become adults," said Sean and Brennan, "there's always a happy ending in the back of your mind that allows you to enjoy your current place in life, but at some point the reality of the situation kicks in and you suddenly feel overwhelmed and unable to move."
"'Time to Change' marks the moment of realization that you need to get out of the darkness and start making the vision in the back of your mind become a reality."
AMZY has shared the stage with Bastille, The Wombats, Cold War Kids, Atlas Genius, The Airborne Toxic Event, Robert Delong, MisterWives, Flume, and many many others.
