Although they evolved into a full-fledged pop band, Guster began their career as a quirky acoustic trio. Guster formed in 1991, when Ryan Miller, Adam Gardner, and Brian Rosenworcel first crossed paths at college orientation. Originally called Gus, the trio played local shows around the Boston area before releasing an independent album, Parachute, in 1994. By 1996, they’d elongated their name to Guster and recorded a second album, Goldfly. The band rereleased Goldfly in 1998 and the bandmates decamped to a recording studio later that year to work with producer Steve Lillywhite. Released in 1999, Long and Gone Forever became the band’s unofficial breakthrough album, cracking the lower reaches of the Billboard charts and spinning off a hit single, “Fa Fa.” Their follow-up effort, Keep It Together (2003), which featured drum kit percussion and contributions from a talented multi-instrumentalist named Joe Pisapia. Several months after Keep It Together’s release, Pisapia joined the group permanently. He made his official debut on the 2004 concert album Guster on Ice, which found the guys playing selections from all of their albums.

Now a four-piece outfit, Guster returned in 2006 with their richest-sounding album to date, Ganging Up on the Sun. The group's sixth studio album, Easy Wonderful, was released in October of 2010. Right around that time Pisapia announced he wouldn't be touring with the band any longer, choosing instead to play with k.d. lang full-time. He was replaced in the touring lineup by guitarist Luke Reynolds. Guster’s new album, Evermotion, is set for release January 13th. Guster’s songs remain packed with hummable choruses and dense lyrical detail amid the muscular guitar riffs, clanging percussion and deceptively dark lyrics. The new album features adventurous turns on slide guitars, brassy trumpets and even a glockenspiel, with sax and trombone accompaniment by Jon Natchez, whose stints with the War on Drugs, Beirut, Passion Pit and others have led NPR to call him “indie rock’s most valuable sideman.” Evermotion introduces you to a Guster that is free, not calculated, seasoned but loose, confident in re-shaping their legacy.
