Exhausted Pipes is an indie folk-rock trio from Berkeley, CA. The members of the band, Hunter Steers (singer / songwriter / guitar), David Mayman (drums), and Andy Landgraf (bass), created the group during college, in 2009. Gaining early momentum when the group moved to the SF Bay Area, the trio self-released their eponymous debut album, Exhausted Pipes, in late 2011.
After getting their start playing in small bars and music venues in Oakland/SF, the group began blending more folk and Americana influences into their dancy indie-rock sound. Today, Exhausted Pipes is known for their high-energy live performances and music that is characterized by three-part harmonies, soaring solos, wide-ranging dynamics and intricacies.
