The Blue Pines began in a tiny basement storage room in the winter of 2014. The little room was furnished with amps, guitars, mics, and a full drum kit. With standing room for only one, Newkirk set off recording demos with a simple looping pedal and a small Tascam. The songs from those original sessions have since taken on a life each their own. Experience a sound grown from roots in punk, pop, rock, and blues with overtones ranging from ominous to numinous.

The band has been playing around Grand Rapids, MI since early 2015 and is scheduled to release their debut album this summer (2018). Stay tuned...
