The Well is a 3-piece band out of Austin, Texas consisting of

  • Ian Graham - guitar/vocals
  • Lisa Alley - bass/vocals
  • & Jason Sullivan - drums

If one were to describe their sound, it would be best described as "early 70s doom/heavy psych and frayed weirdness of dark folk" with a hint of inspiration taken from goth bands like The Cure & Joy Division. Since their debut album "Samsara" was release back in 2014, they've been noticed by many different rock/metal magazines such as The Obelisk: "drenched in post-Electric Wizard sneer",

Brooklyn Vegan: "“rooted in the fuzzy, doomy riffage of Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer and the creepy psychedelia of Syd Barrett, and The Well are increasingly good at this kind of thing."

Kerrang! : "Taking them out of the doom corner and giving it a raw, post-punk feel. "Raven" sounds like a Satanic, downtuned Steppenwolf, and frankly we can’t get enough."

The Well are kicking off a mini tour along with fellow psychedelic/stoner rockers Howling Giant from Nashville in February with El Paso being the 2nd stop on the tour:
