Vacation Manor EPK
Vacation Manor is a four-piece indie rock band from Lynchburg, Virginia consisting of Nathan Towles (Guitar/Vocals), Dane Spearman (Bass), Cole Young (Drums), and Carson Cody (Keys/Synth). The band formed in the fall of 2014 almost instantaneously after Towles, Spearman, and Young agreed to play as Towles' backing band for a Battle of the Bands in Washington, DC. After having practiced and performed collectively for the first time, the band had two finished songs and had won the competition all in under 24 hours.
Over the last two years, the band has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with several well known acts including Colony House, Magic Man, Howie Day and many more. The group's "catchy, lovable, indie anthems" complimented by their energetic live shows have garnered comparisons to artists such as Young the Giant, Leagues, and Walk The Moon.
The band independently released their debut EP, Girl, Say, in the Spring of 2016, gaining nearly 500K listens in just a couple of months and are working to release new music by the end of 2017. In the meantime the band continues to write and play shows around the East Coast, South, and Midwest.
