Socratic is a seamless blend of charming, engaging lyrics, memorable melodies and clever arrangements, all bound together by a spirited Rock & Roll foundation. It balances limitless passion and musical precision to provide a thoughtful twist on life, love and contemporary culture. Socratic has performed for audiences across the United States, Australia, and Japan.
Socratic first reached a national audience in 2005, when its first full-length album “Lunch for the Sky” was released on Drive-Thru Records. John Goodmanson, whose resume includes artists such as Death Cab for Cutie and Nada Surf, produced the album. After releasing the five-track EP “Just Turn” a year later, Socratic entered the studio with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus, who produced the band’s second full-length album, “Spread the Rumors.” Released in 2008, the album was met with critical acclaim, but the release was poorly timed, as Drive-Thru Records met its demise shortly after the album’s release.
With no financial assistance from a label, Socratic continued in unwavering fashion, entering the studio to fund and produce its third full-length album with its own resources. Though it took over two years, “Socratic (The Album)” was released on January 10, 2012. Now, with a new album under its belt, Socratic continues to play vibrant live shows, write new material, and look to the future with a restored sense of optimism, anticipation and excitement.
Socratic has performed with acts ranging from All-American Rejects, Incubus, Brand New, The Offspring, Pete Yorn, The Early November, The Starting Line, Boys Like Girls, Say Anything, Plain White T's, and the Teletubbies (yes, even the Teletubbies!).
