Simplified began its osmosis in the summer of 2001, when Clee Laster and Chris Sheridan started to trade acoustic musical riffs in and around the Charlotte music scene. Clee's soulful voice and skilled rhythmic jamming balanced perfectly with Sheridan's incredible talents on guitar, making a truly memorable acoustic pair. But they had something bigger in mind. The duo began to seek out other musicians.
Soon, they found their next musical soulmate in bassist Chris Lynch. With an ear for backbeats and a unique, laidback style, Lynch brought his unforgettable groove to the sound. The trio instantly clicked and began to seek out the final piece of the "Simplified" puzzle.
Enter Tim Lail. After an exhausting search for the perfect percussionist, Tim made his beat heard. A seasoned percussionist with an enigmatic presence behind the drums, Tim forged the backbone of Simplified with rock solid rhythms and flavorings of world beats.
It was now December of 2003, and the quartet was finally complete.
