Long before they decided to join forces as The Domestics, Finn and London each spent years honing their craft as individual songwriters. After moving to Portland in the summer of 2013 after over a decade of writing and performing under his own name in Eugene, London found himself tracking piano for Finn at Flora Recording and Playback, studio of Grammy-Nominated producer Tucker Martine where Finn works as an assistant engineer alongside artists like My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, Neko Case, and Sufjan Stevens. This first studio collaboration began a relationship which would eventually lead to the combination of Finn and London’s respective solo projects and to the recording of their first record over 15 days in the spring of 2014.
Less than a year after assembling a live band, The Domestics have triumphantly emerged as one of Portland’s most promising new acts. Their energetic live shows, as well as the strength of their forthcoming debut record have garnered them a dedicated fan base and maelstrom of critical attention.
The Domestics are: Michael Finn, Leo London, Kyle Moderhak, Matt Moore, and Brad Norton.
People might like us because we are everyday misfits who happen to have a pretty interesting band. We do look like a mashup of punky, grungy typical Oregon Coast dudes (Nathan still lives part time in his, Ryan's, and Jon's hometown of Reedsport.) And in a general sense, we sound like a modern rock and roll band with guitars and drums and stuff. We try to convey a focused intensity and honest emotion when we play, not finesse and presentation.
