Inspired by a few of their favorite bands, Lane Silva and Tim Dunker began to write music for a newly formed project in 2014. Both Tim and Lane brought different background genres and influences to the table, from blues to classic rock to emo/indie to jazz to metal to ambient and post-rock. They continued to write and rewrite music for over a year, experimenting on a few small crowds for feedback and adjustments. They asked bass player Avery Bell in the fall of 2015 to join in on a session and found their missing link. Adding on Avery to play a show in December 2015 turned into the full lineup of the band. The band has since continued to write and record songs in the vein of alternative, emo, math, indie, and ambient, resulting in a style that doesn’t quite fit any one genre. Their debut EP, Wherever It May Take You, was released mid-December 2016. A split with instrumental math rock band, Things Amazing was released in the fall of 2017, which is available on bandcamp under the title Good Things. Currently based in Atlanta, GA, Goodfires plans to dig into their music and writing styles in the near future.
