Awesome Distraction has been together for over 4 years. Originally formed in 2011 by Nick Veine (19) and Kyle Garber (18) from Manistee, they have continued to impress audiences with their harmonies and musicianship. Joining them in 2013 was Chloe Kimes (17) from Scottville who added her own flavor to the group with her beautiful high harmony as well as her excellent songwriting. They truly make up an Awesome Distraction.
Already having 2 CDs under their belt, they have entertained audiences with their own twist on cover songs infusing them with an acoustic sound making them their own. While they do covers, they have also produced a CD ("Humbly Yours") with most of their original work.
The versatility they add with guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, harmonica, violin and cajon help to emphasize the great sound. Opening for Joel Mabus (renowned folk singer) and Ryan Whyte Maloney (from "The Voice") have been just a few highlights in their budding career. [+]
