Originally from Manhattan, but based in Venice, CA, the
bi-coastal alternative rock band Faulkner was first discovered in 2013. After
posting a demo on SoundCloud, the band had caught the attention of Mark Needham
(The Killers), RZA (Wu-Tang Clan), and JP Bowersock (The Strokes) in 2013. This
eventually lead to their debut album being cut by these three experienced
individuals at the studio of former Columbia Records co-president and Def Jam
Records founder, Rick Rubin.
