Sir Sly is not a person but the sum of its parts. Landon Jacobs, Hayden Coplen, and Jason Suwito often refer to Sir Sly as an elusive, almost unattainable entity they strive to embody. This personification of the mysterious Sir Sly is what helps drive the nonstop creative process that keeps the trio constantly writing and recording music, tirelessly striving to create art that is inventive and honest. The Los Angeles based band write, record, produce, mix and master all of their music in their own recording studio, where they have developed their signature sound - a delicate balance of solemnly surging, yet indelibly catchy electronic indie rock. Before coming together as Sir Sly in the Fall of 2012, each member spent years perfecting their self-taught respective crafts, honing their skills in whatever ways they could. Lead singer Landon Jacobs began writing songs at age 13 in the bedroom of his southern California home, after learning to play guitar and piano. Drummer Hayden Coplen learned how to play by watching and imitating old videos of Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. Keyboardist Jason Suwito built the band’s studio himself, and self-taught the technical skills involved with recording engineering and music production. It’s this refreshing self-sustaining approach to creating music that initially brought the three members together, and has kept them continually working to develop and maintain the spirit of Sir Sly.
