Gyats0 was formed in the summer of 2021, in Portland OR, when Jacob Kiely-Song approached Tom Higgins and Danny Charvat (who lived together) about backing him for a show. At the time Will Devitt, who was out in Portland for the summer was also staying at the house with Tom and Dan. He heard Kiely-Song’s tune “Drift” which had just been released on streaming, and was interested to be a part of the band as well.
Fast forward through a summer packed with shows, and from the scene the band connected with Olivia Phillips and Ethan Kellner, and joined forces to give the band an even bigger sound. This past winter (Jan 2022) the full band went to Brooklyn to record “Heartacher” live in studio. And that brings us up to the present.
