"...simple enough to not overwhelm the listener, but yet also
incorporate[s] enough variation and quirkiness to keep it interesting...

...in a sea of indie-rock sameness, TSOTE rises above and stands out from
the rest of the flotsam and jetsam."
-Jason Upright - (Capitol, EMI, Revelation, Abacus,
Superhero Artist Management, and DMI)

Singer/Songwriter Gavin Bascom self-released his debut EP They would at Least Stay Busy under the name The Shape Of The Earth in the summer 2008. The critical acclaim and enthusiasm Bascom had garnered through live performances and a strong online presence quickly created a local and international buzz across the nation. The introspective and fiercely personal set of songs became considered "soundtrack potential gold," and was noticed by Lisa Donovan (Zappin productions), featured the final song on the EP "Epilogue" in a video written for YouTube's YTLive event in fall 2008. The video garnered over 700,000 plays in a matter of months, landing this debut EP in the top 100 albums on iTunes, an impressive feat for any debut songwriter. Bascom has since added a full lineup including long time friend and songwriter Kevin Hull, and ex drummer from the former Pop Rock band Faulter Rich Boutwell. In the winter of 2009, the group entered the studio to record their debut LP, Do I Dare Disturbed the Universe?, with producer/song writer Andy Carpenter at Jon St. James famous Casbah Recording Studio. Bascom said, "The new album is a natural progression for me, it started from the intimate stripped down kind of bedroom stuff that I have always been writing, but we have incorporated all the things the new members have to offer, and it really comes out sounding full and powerful." The new record truly maintains the personality and intimacy of his poignant lyrics but permeates the sound-scape in a way that speaks volumes both musically and emotionally. Jason Upright (EMI, Captiol, Revelation, Abacus, Superhero Artist Management, and DMI) had this to say about the new TSOTE release, "...simple enough to not overwhelm the listener, but yet also incorporate[s] enough variation and quirkiness to keep it interesting...in a sea of Indie Rock sameness, TSOTE rises above and stands out from the rest of the flotsam and jetsam."
