Southeast Engine was formed in 2000 by Adam Remnant (lead vocals, guitar) and Leo DeLuca (drum kit, percussion). Both attended the same high school in Dayton, Ohio and grew up in "The Gem City" during its musical heyday of the 1990s. Underground bands like Guided By Voices, Brainiac, and Swearing At Motorists made significant and long-standing impressions upon the two youngsters.
Around 2000, the pair moved to Athens, Ohio and were equally inspired by the Appalachian old-timey and folk music of the area. Thus, Southeast Engine is a unique hybrid of the Dayton, Ohio musical underground and the Athens, Ohio folk scene.
Longstanding member, Michael Lachman (keyboards, Wandering Genie) began playing with the band soon after its formation. The three are now joined by Jesse Remnant (Adam's younger brother) on bass guitar and harmony vocals and multi-instrumentalist, Billy Matheny.
The Wrens (Absolutely Kosher Records) have been pivotal to Southeast Engine's progression. The two bands played together for the first time in 2005. Charles Bissell, songwriter for The Wrens, really took to Southeast Engine's music and lead the band to Cory Brown of Absolutely Kosher / Misra Records. The band signed to Misra in February of 2007 and released "A Wheel Within A Wheel" later that year.
"From the Forest to the Sea" is the title of the group's next album. Recording commenced in a forsaken, 1800s high school auditorium in the hills of Stewart, Ohio. It will be released in early 2009.
In 2006 Matt Kinder adopted the moniker The Parade Schedule for his ever revolving cast of musicians. His debut album Seeds To Be Planted, Trees To Be Cut has been in the works for just over 2 years and is finally seeing a release on The Record Machine. Seeds is full of honest tales that resonate with its listeners. Kinder leads his cast of musicians with his soothing baritone vocals and they find the right amount of instrumentation to back it up. Every song has room to find their strengths. Some songs might be somber and pensive while others you just might find yourself singing along to them after a few listens.
Press: “Matt Kinder’s sepia-folk style sets him apart from a lot of his contemporaries and his songwriting constantly captures loss, love, duty, and honor like few can. The Parade Schedule makes beautiful music that will stick with you like a familiar memory.” -Backseat Sandbar
“It is beautiful, almost haunting, music that you will remember for a long time.” – Insomnia Radio
