water on mars
Water On Mars is an Annapolis-based band that creates alternative rock music with prog, punk, and classic rock influences. Our music is an amalgamation of different styles of rock paired with soaring vocals, meaningful lyrics, and a tight lineup of talented young musicians with unique and intelligent points of view.
Our goal as a band is to reach a new audience of the world’s youth through making music that speaks to us.
Water On Mars started with founding members Clare Sweeney and Sofia Coleman as two weird, unpopular girls in middle school who decided they wanted to make music together. The original name for the band was Lemon Cake, a reference to a childhood story about one of Sofia’s early birthday parties, where Clare started a small riot over a lemon birthday cake that she apparently didn’t like very much. Clare and Sofia were lifelong friends, and their love of music was one of the things they bonded over the most.
After years of finding and losing various members, they managed to lock down guitarist Adam Hurt and drummer Ryan Abell in November of 2016, followed by guitarist Demitrius Taylor in January 2018. The name Water On Mars was inspired somewhere in early 2017 by scientific evidence of water being discovered on the planet mars, but you probably could have guessed that.
Since then, Water On Mars has performed at numerous high-profile venues such as Baltimore Soundstage, Metropolitan Annapolis, Union Jack’s Annapolis, and many more. They’ve worked with esteemed director Robert Tinell on a music video for their upcoming single, Monster, and have commanded a local presence unlike any other. Their unique style of emotional and intelligently crafted songs and their unbelievable stage presence have made them a force to be reckoned with, and through all this, their potential for growth is limitless.
