Epimotive is not just a band, but a tale written by Thor himself. On a Wisconsin morning, much like any other, Michael Nowak was practicing with the band Glenview Lane. Brenden Olds was a close acquaintance of Glenview Lane's lead singer and songwriter, Robert Schreiner, and was called over to throw his artistic touch into the mix. Nothing ever came of that jam as far as Glenview Lane, but as for the connection between Michael and Brenden, they both knew something was in the future. After Mike had moved to California Brenden decided to make a leap of faith and follow him to the sunny shores of Santa Barbara. While there the duo began writing songs and orchestrating the plan of attack for what they would now be called, Epimotive. While both were back on home on holiday they played with the bassist from Glenview Lane, Peter Hair. This was yet another connection where all musicians saw eye to eye. With more than half the band in play the main component missing was the lead vocalist. For that Brenden had been chatting with his oldest high school friend. Chris Lee and Brenden had been singing together for years from Nirvana covers to choral arrangements through the high school. The links in the band had never been stronger and Chris was the perfect fit to carry Epimotive.
