Boise based band, College Level, introduced themselves to the Boise indie scene with the 2018 release of their self-produced single, “Headspace”. They quickly developed a local reputation by playing over 20 shows in the first 6 months of 2019 and releasing their first EP, “gosh.” in August of 2019. With a wide range of musical influences, College Level’s fusion of power pop and high energy rock make them a unique sound within the Boise area.
College Level includes Boise natives Taylor Howard (rhythm guitar/lead vocals), Joel Hroma (drums/vocals), Jared Smith (bass/vocals) and Las Vegas born Alex Smith (lead guitar/vocals). The group was formed in January 2018 under reject names Nottagarage and Dog Uncle. After the addition of Joel and Jared, the band got right to work creating a community of music lovers and local artists of all kinds.
College Level looks to continue their growth in 2020 with plans of tours across the west coast. Their debut full length LP is in the works; featuring a variety of sounds focused heavily on catchy hooks and introspective stories of early adulthood.
