Band Bio's

Band Bio
 
Sierra is dedicated to the preservation of Rock and Country music. We strive to create a fun and moving music for your dancing or listening pleasure.
 
We started as the typical grange band in 2007 and have gone through some personnel changes but have been stable with the current cast of characters since 2009.
 
The band name comes from the street that two of us live on, we continually practice on and occasionally party on.
 
Our influences are based in 70s rock, contemporary rock and contemporary country.
 
We have one studio CD named Covers and are planning to head back to the studio in the fall to cut a second CD.
 
We play local venues, charity events and select party’s and are trying to build our local fan base.
 
We truly appreciate the steadfast support we receive from our wives, families and you our fans.
