    The Long Winters are made up of John Roderick (vocals/guitar), Sean Nelson (keyboards), Eric Corson (bass) and Michael Shilling (drums). They have so far released two albums, 'The Worst You Can Do Is Harm' and 'When I Pretend To Fall'.

    John was born in Seattle but grew up in Alaska. He started to play the guitar in high school but never bothered to 'get good' until many years later and all his other options had dried up. He has been nicknamed 'Wounded Lion' because people have found him difficult to approach at shows which he believes could not be closer to the truth. He says, "I'm very glad that the band gets to tour and make records. It is my new favourite thing in the world. I'm hoping that the global inter-web will allow me to overcome my innate social awkwardness. Maybe one day other socially awkward people will discover the Internet, too.

    John says he is happy to discuss music but does not find it interesting per se but he does love to talk about what it does and how it's made and why. He claims to be a hater lover, not just a hater.

    Sean was raised in LA but moved to Seattle in the early 90's. He plays the keyboards and sings the harmonies. He once hired John to play in his band, 'Harvey Danger' and also to write reviews for movies. Sean is working on an album of his own and as John once said, "I have never met anyone that works as hard as he does."

    Eric is the bass player for the band. He is from Seattle and for the first year that they toured, slept the whole time, only waking to play the show and try to chat up women. Eric is a very talented musician; he learned all of the bass parts to 'The Worst You Can Do Is Harm' in three days and as he didn't own a bass at the time, learned them on guitar.

    Michael grew up in New York and plays the drums. Before the Long Winters, he was the drummer in Western State Hurricanes and learnt to play by drumming along to The Police on his bedroom pillows.
