Who we are
Pacific is an alternative indie band from Nashville, TN made up of Will Hunter, Nick Valdez, Cory Andersen, and Nathaniel Philbrick.
Pacific began in 2018 after frontman Will Hunter recorded a debut EP with producer brother, Cody Hunter. In the next 6 months, Will met bass player Cory and drummer Nick and they began touring the southeastern part of the United States playing over 25 house shows in three months, which they say established the identity of the band and began lay the foundations for what’s ahead. Keys player Nathaniel joined later that year.
At the beginning of 2019, Pacific released singles WYAF, wide awake, and yours to their greatest success so far, being named “Local Artist of the Month” on popular Nashville radio station Lightning 100 in January and playing famous Nashville venues like High Watt and Exit/In.
Pacific won’t put a cap on what they are inspired by, known for covering anything from Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom” to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” live. They see the creative value of being well tasted in almost all genres of music and love to incorporate elements of all genres into their shows, though they have a special heart for the punk music of the early 2000s. Modern influences include bands like The 1975, LANY, and the (not recent, but great) Goo Goo Dolls.
Pacific is releasing new music this summer and is touring in the southeastern part of the United States throughout August and September.
