Who we are

Pacific is an alternative band from Nashville, TN formed originally by frontman Will Hunter at the end of his time at Belmont University.

The one piece became a four-piece after the release of their debut "Supposed To EP" when Will met drummer Nick Valdez, bassist Cory Andersen, and keys player “Nanny” Philbrick and spent three months traveling together, playing shows across the southeastern part of the US.

Pacific released three strong singles, including their most popular “WYAF” at the beginning of 2019.

The Pacific sound is new, yet familiar - nostalgic and fresh. 

Largely inspired by the alternative rock music of the early 2000s (Goo Goo Dolls, All American Rejects, Thirty Seconds to Mars), the pop music of the 70s and 80s (The Beatles, U2, The Cure) and the pop alternative music of the modern day (Coldplay, The 1975, LANY),

Pacific wants to represent every genre they feel inspired by. 

“There is really nothing we aren’t inspired by in some way,” says frontman Will.

With only a short amount of time on the scene, Pacific has already made big waves in Nashville including being Artist of the Week on popular Nashville radio station Lightning 100 and playing some of its prestigious venues like Exit/In and The High Watt.
