The Lonely Biscuits are an alternative rock band hailing from Nashville, Tennessee. The band is comprised of Grady Wenrich (vocals, guitar), Sam Gidley (drums), and Nick Byrd (bass). The Lonely Biscuits formed in August 2011 at Belmont University, where Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley were roommates. Bassist Nick Byrd lived on the same floor and joined the band in January 2012.

The Lonely Biscuits first started gaining attention on college campuses around the country, while they were still students themselves. The last four years the band has been headlining small clubs across the U.S. and opening for other national touring acts. The Lonely Biscuits have played on numerous festival stages such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Hangout Fest, Austin City Limits, LouFest and South by Southwest. In 2013, MTVu named The Lonely Biscuits “College Artist of the Year”, and gave them the opportunity to play alongside Macklemore, Tegan and Sara, Alt-J and many more at the MTVu Woodie Awards in Austin, Texas.

After graduating in May of 2015, The Lonely Biscuits partnered with independent distribution company “InGrooves”, and Nashville producer/engineer Paul Moak to record and release their new material. The Lonely Biscuits’ “Come Around” EP is scheduled to come out later this year, and their anticipated debut full-length is to be released in 2016. The “Come Around” EP has a more mature and honest sound, while still staying true to their playful and lighthearted personalities. The band has plans to tour extensively around the release of the EP, and will return to the studio in the winter to record their debut album.
