Bio: Super City formed in 2013 around the song-writing duo of Greg Wellham and Dan Ryan while they were attending Towson University. The pair had known each other and jammed occasionally since first meeting in high-school, but had never actually been in a band together until forming Super City. They recruited Jon Birkholz, Brian Brunsman, and former Bridge drummer Mike Gambome to round out the line-up. Due to the the prolific song-writing of Wellham and Ryan – which benefits from the friendly competitiveness between the two which helps fuel the bands’ fast-growing catalog – Super City released its self-titled EP shortly after forming and is working on their full-length debut which will be released early 2015.
