Girls on Couches
This project is very unique in that it came out of the relationship between Tim Gahagan and Zachary Schanaker: Tim being Zack's drum teacher and Zack learning to play the drums while Tim was learning to play the guitar. Tim offered the wisdom and experience of being a life long professional musician and the beginner's mind of willingness to try something new. In spite of Zack's learning challenges, they made real progress. They inspired Michael Lindner, a seasoned professional musician, to join them and Girls on Couches was born. The poetic way of describing this expression might be that it is a gift, a life experience, wisdom & naiveté, teacher and student, friendship and band camaraderie in the form of recorded songs. If you were to place it in a genre it would be 'low-fi', 'garage', 'diy' pop-rock.
