We all have someone we can appreciate in our lives, whether it is a parent, sibling, cousin or lover. Often times, even if we do enjoy being around a loved one, we seldom think about working with them, for fear of losing the relationship.
After talking with TeamMate, a dynamic male and female band from Los Angeles, I realized that love really does conquer all.
TeamMate's story is like a fairy tale. After meeting in college and dating for over 10 years, singer-keyboardist Scott Simon and drummer Dani Buncher were setting up for a life of growing old together and eventually having kids. Unfortunately, their plans came to a halt after Dani came out to Scott, ending their relationship.
If you are meant to be with someone, the universe finds a way. After years of living in different cities, fate took control and the former lovebirds reconnected, and approached Rostrum Records in the idea of forming TeamMate.
Scott and Dani’s chemistry is undeniable and carries over into their music.
Their first Ep “The Sequel” was a masterpiece, delivering fun lyrics and allowing TeamMate’s fans to get to know them while getting old stories off their chests.
We can expect TeamMate's latest single dropping Tuesday, “Don’t Count Me Out,” to be the start of a fresh change from their last EP, filled with new experiences and crazy stories over the last few years. The single will be on their new EP Untitled, releasing before the end of the summer.
If you still haven't fallen in love with TeamMate, then this act of gratitude will catch your attention. If you’re a fan and show unconditional love to the group through social media sharing, they reciprocate by dedicating a “Wednesday Wall Bomb” every week to one of their fans. They write, play and perform the video, posting it on YouTube and the lucky fan page for everyone to see. What band do you know does that?
We are also excited to hear about TeamMate opening for the Grand Marshal at the Los Angeles LBGT Festival this year. We haven't heard the last of these two and look forward to what they have in store for the future!
