About Asylum St

A local three piece, independent band in Norwich, CT that was established on July 3, 2022. The members consist of Nick, Cole, and Spencer. Their projects started when Nick and Cole went through similar experiences in their lives and decided to write music about it in order to help themselves and maybe help others with similar issues.

Being all friends since high school, their music-making together stemmed prior to 2022. The initial music was satirical, comedic, and written on the spot and then they further explored their more serious creative skills with music. 

 Their first album "End Where We Began" released March 3rd on all streaming platforms. They are not actively playing shows (at this time) but hopefully plan on performing sometime in the near future.

Cole, 23, has been working on his own music since the age of 15. Along the way, he has learned music production techniques that have later helped produce his own tracks along with the band's. His first music release was under the name "The Nameless Face" where he released his solo work. To pursue music further, Cole attended Eastern Connecticut State University as a Music Education major starting in 2020 and ending the spring semester of 2021 when he realized college wasn't the best option for him. He was connected with Alex K Productions in the summer of 2021 through to intern and work with artists as a music producer, up until he left in mid 2022 and started working with Asylum St.
