Formed in January 2012, the Divide is comprised of Ben Montalbano (Banjo/Vocals), Will Yanez (Guitar/Vocals), Sam Peters (Upright Bass/Vocals), and Erick Eckstrom (Percussion). The group of music students from the University of Illinois utilizes its varied backgrounds in jazz, rock, bluegrass, and classical music to make a music that is intricate and unique, while maintaining a raw and emotional simplicity. While being a fairly new band, each member is no stranger to the performance world, each playing gigs weekly at venues ranging from performing in orchestra halls to obscure jazz clubs and dive bars. The release of their Attic EP (available at divideband.bandcamp.com) was well received and has been receiving air time across the Midwest. The group is set to release another EP in May, to be followed with a Midwest tour in June.
