It all started sometime around 2001 or 2010 in Cleveland, Ohio with a Sad Bastards Night at the Beachland Tavern and songs from Bliss & Its Consequences. Low Sun Fire and Brave New Strange followed.

In 2016, A.K. Strange, Carla Cherry (who directs the Night Divided) and Jon Toerner (ex of Cowgirl) congregated in Cincinnati to make music in a warehouse.
