Static and Surrender:

Every once in a while, paths cross at just the right time, in the right place, and within the right circumstances. Such is the case for San Francisco alternative rock upstarts Static and Surrender—Jeff Campbell [lead vocals, guitar], Adam Schuman [guitar, vocals], and John Schuman [drums]. By 2016, brothers John and Adam had established themselves in popular Bay Area stalwarts such as The Trophy Fire, landing critical acclaim and gigging alongside everyone from Dredg to The Dear Hunter. Within that same scene, Jeff earned recognition by receiving national songwriting awards, shared the stage with titans such as John Mayer, and fronted Pine and Battery, among other acts.

One night, a chance encounter between Jeff and Adam paved the way for what would become Static and Surrender.

“I ran into Adam and his wife at a restaurant,” recalls Jeff. “We started talking about the static and stagnation we’d both been feeling about our careers, and how we’d both sort of surrendered to it. A day later, he sent me a bunch of demos. As soon as I heard them, it just felt right. It’s the brother dynamic that attracted me to Adam and John. They’ve been playing music together for two decades. They finish each other’s sentences, in life and on stage. At the same time, we grew up in similar households. When we met, it felt like we’d known each other forever. Everything fit. It was like we were meant to play together all along.”

Lapel:

Trying to find just the right moniker for her new synth-pop outfit, Debbie Neigher was inspired by a 1977 interview with author and actress Margaret Trudeau. When asked about her previous marriage to the Prime Minister of Canada, Trudeau famously responded: “I want to be more than a rose in my husband’s lapel.” This moment—and the name Lapel—boldly underscore the ethos of Neigher’s new project: “I love that quote. It’s about feminism. It’s about not wanting to be defined by someone else. Trudeau went on to have a significant impact as a mental-health advocate, too. She was an incredible woman.”

A former social worker and music teacher who spent her days supporting homeless youth, and her nights as a keyboardist and backup singer for more than a dozen bands including Ezra Furman, The Family Crest and Curls (with Christopher Owens of the band Girls), Debbie Neigher is a seasoned veteran of the San Francisco Bay scene. “I’ve toured and recorded as a sidewoman with all of these amazing artists over the years, and I’ve learned something from each one,” she says. “It’s really prepared me for where I’m at now—leading a project and making the most authentic music I’ve ever written.”
