Satellites & Sirens

Image Gallery

Satellites & Sirens is a synth and guitar-driven Christian rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. The band formed in 2006 on Craigslist. While still in its infancy, it gained attention. MTV featured the band as its "Needle in the Haystack" spotlight artist for the week of Monday, June 21, 2010.

In 2006, after Hunker moved to Nashville and began working with producer Rusty Varenkamp on what would become Satellites & Sirens, Hunker decided it was time to assemble a band. "I just put up an ad on Craigslist looking for guitar, bass, and drums to just see what happened," he says. "Probably 80 percent of the stuff that came out of it was just absolutely horrible." However, from the ad Hunker managed to find drummer Jonathan Dimmel, who impressed Hunker both musically and personally. Shortly after, Dimmel introduced both Willey and Troyer to Hunker and into S&S. The band was then promoted through online advertising and social networks. Despite their origins, the band members also consider themselves close friends as opposed to just co-workers. Josue S. Lopez, Ex-Representative, and Co-manager of the band overheard Dimmel remark, "A lot of bands don't have that. Especially when they don't go back further than, you know, two years off Craigslist."
