More on The Farewell Circuit:
The Farewell Circuit’s music can be described as Indie Rock, something like a mixture of Death Cab, Sigor Ros, and Radiohead.

The Farewell Circuit is made up of Geoff Hartnell, DJ House, & Danny O'Brien. Sometimes they are helped by their friends George Hadfield, Alex Young, & Dan Lawonn.

Nestled in the tropical paradise of Minneapolis, Minnesota where men are God’s among mortals; The Farewell Circuit has found a solid foothold in the music world. Incessant self produced releases mark the quintet’s constant transformation and evolution as a band and as real people discovering themselves in this labyrinth we call life. Their music has been showcased as immature pop-rock in its early stages and has more recently developed into a powerful-mature sound of catchy guitar melodies, soft piano lines, aggressive percussion all tied together with the graceful vocals of Danny O’Brien. This Musical ensemble’s roots extend deep; all the way back to Danny O’Brien’s initiation of a band later to be named The Farewell Circuit. Several cast changes in ensuing years would leave Danny as the only remaining member of the original five. His ear pinpointed the percussive styling of Geoff Hartnell and it wasn’t long before his younger brother Zach was recruited as the edgy and innovative lead guitarist. The young artists continued to enlist new fans and develop as a group until they had to bid farewell to their long-time friend and bassist Berook Addisu in the summer of 2005. Though disheartened, The Farewell Circuit would prove resilient and with the vigor of their newly converted bassist Evan McAllister, the group would be ready for any obstacles and any opportunities presented to them. The group recently realized boundless potential in Nate Gruber who would contribute his skill and wide understanding of piano, guitar, and harmony to an already developed sound. —
