Safehill is a fresh rock band out of Central Massachusetts hoping to bring the raw, stripped down rock 'n' roll aesthetic back to the mainstream.
Mike Martin, our frontman, resides in Gardner, MA. He has been a music junkie his entire life, growing up with rock from the 1970's through the 2000's, most significantly 90's rock. He finally bought his first guitar when he was 19 and taught himself how to play. Mike is also an avid runner, automobile enthusiast, and a graduate of Fitchburg State University.
Matt Swanton, our lead guitarist, grew up in Shirley, MA. He started playing guitar when he was just a 9-year-old, and is a huge blues and classic rock aficionado. Matt recently graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a degree in Sound Recording Technology. In addition to being a music nerd, he is also a vintage muscle car enthusiast.
Dan Mueller, our bassist, hails from Leominster, MA, and would gladly discuss the merits of that fine city with anyone willing to lend an ear. In his free time he enjoys watching the Red Sox, running, discovering obscure 90's bands, and finding ways to tastefully annoy his sister. Dan is a graduate of Williams College in Williamstown, MA.
Rob Kogut, our drummer, comes from Leominster, MA. His style and taste are influenced by a wide range of music, including pop-punk, metal, and classic rock. When he's not playing drums, he's probably asleep dreaming about playing drums.
