Collectively, the members of Sleep Study have shared stages and played on recordings with Al Kooper, Kid Dakota, Jeremy Messersmith, Owl City’s Breanne Düren, Mayda, Bella Ruse, The Honeydogs, Minor Kingdom, Rogue Valley, and more.
Sleep Study is a natural cooperative of strengths from all members, combining Ryan Paul Plewacki’s (vocals/guitar) brand of Brit flavored rock with Justin Hartke’s (vocals/bass) jazz upbringing and Cory Eischen’s (keys) extensive pop background. The calculated drumming of Alexander Young solidifies their retro sound.
Sleep Study’s unapologetic dedication to their modern take on a 70’s pop sound has snagged an impressive amount of interest, even as the band attempted to fly below the radar to construct their debut record. The group was acknowledged by Minneapolis-based publication City Pages even before their debut performance in June 2011. They’ve since continued to collect press from news outlets in their home state as well as The Austin Chronicle during SXSW.
