UPDATES

Home Again 

Hello Everybody!
To all who came out to see Pullman Standard on the Cannonball tour pt. 1, 2, or 3; thank you so very much for all of your continued love and support for what we do and the music we make. We will be hitting the road June 22, making our way to around this country. Unfortunately, not all of us will be. When you tour as much as we do your band is your family. Due to personal circumstances, our brother and drummer CORE will be taking an indefinite hiatus from Pu...llman Standard. This by no means is a departure. Having said that, if you are a drummer or know a drummer that would be willing to hit the road with us for the time being, please contact PullmanStandardManagement@Gmail.com
Keep moving forward, and rock-n-roll!

We love you all

PS

New Years Update 

Where shall we begin? Well... Happy New Year ! Thank you to all who have ever supported Pullman Standard on our journey as a band. For the past five years we have been slowly extending our reach as a band across this beautiful country meeting some of the coolest people and performing some of the most amazing shows. At the begining of 2014 we took a new direction with a huge line up change and an explosion new energy. Pullman Standard performed over 220 shows since January 2014, crisscrossing the country breaking into new markets. Make no mistake, tour life has its ups as well as its downs. At times it can be down right grueling, sleeping on random peoples floors, eating cheap fast food, driving a half busted van and trailer 6 hours sometimes to play in a half empty bar filled with smoke to people who have never heard your music so all they want to hear are cover songs. It wears you down quickly if your not ready, another reason why some Pullman Standard members didn't stick around that long.

Yet we persevere with realistic goals and a tenacious spirit. Communication is key to the success of any band, business, relationship, etc. When lines of communication become non existent, problems that are easily solvable become giant road blocks and can be very disabling to growing momentum . These lines have become disconnected between us in Pullman Standard and one of its members. As much as we wish we could give a better explanation, we honestly can't. All WE(Timmy D.,JD Minnick, Flip Ozuna, CORE) know is Thomas Moore is no longer in Pullman Standard. We will do our best to keep you posted, but for now that is truly all we know.

We ask that you all respect Thomas' privacy as well as all of the members of Pullman Standard. This is a difficult situation for us and are still moving forward with our "Cannonball" Tour as planned. We will see you all soon.

Remember Pullman Standard is more than who we are as a band, it is an idea that gives energy to all. Let our music and the energy it brings be the sound track to your adventures and the common ground in the forging of memories and relationships. May it be the spark that ignites inspiration , and the light the guides you home.

Let me fill you in - 

So i'll make this as to the point as possible.  I started Pullman Standard six years ago when i was living out of my car and all i had was my Acoustic guitar and Laptop  to record demos with.  People began to believe in my songs and musicians joined me on my journey to share those songs.  Pullman Standard has had quite a few line up changes along the way, some for personal reasons some just weren't the right fit.  But rest assured the line up you see today is the right group of guys  moving forward with the name Pullman Standard on their backs.
 To the point: 
I have been getting asked quite a bit , "Where did Austin go?" "Did you guys get in a fight?" 
First of all for those who never realized it Austin is my younger brother (Yes blood related), he joined PS straight out of high school when he was 17.  He went to college during the week and toured on the weekends as well as every open school break.  After he graduated Pullman Standard was in full touring mode, crisscrossing the country every other month.  Make no mistake, tour life is rough , there has been nothing glamorous about the last four years since we started touring.  Sleeping on random peoples floors, eating cheap fast food, driving a half busted van and trailer 6 hours to play in a half empty bar filled with smoke to people who have never heard your music so all they want to hear are cover songs.  It wears you down quickly if your not ready, another reason why some Pullman Standard members didn't stick around that long.
My brother joined Pullman Standard cause i needed a temporary bassist to play a few gigs, what was supposed to be a temporary fix turned into a six year commitment.  Austin is an amazing musician who bled for me and the dream of Pullman Standard. He always gave me and Pullman Standard his best and only questioned direction to help find a better one.   This past winter break Austin and I sat down and talked about the future of Pullman Standard.  All of the touring that was being planned for the next year, all of the long drives that were about to be logged.  I knew from the start of the conversation how it would end.  He kept it short but explained his point of view on the last six years as well as the future and how he always wants the best for me and Pullman Standard but he could no longer be a part of it and how he would give me till the end of our winter tour.   With a big hug and nod of approval Austin performed one more show with us at Molly Mallones before we left for this past Spring Tour.  Remember Pullman Standard is more than who we are as a band, it is an idea that gives energy to all.  Let our music and the energy it brings be the sound track to your adventures and the common ground in the forging of memories and relationships.  May it be the spark that ignites inspiration , and the light the guides you home.   I love my brother always.

Meet the band: Part 1 

Many of you who follow us closely have probably noticed a few changes to the line up.  Austin Smith and Steve "Gilly" Gilliland have had to move on for their own personal reasons.  We worked hard, REALLY HARD, though to secure a line up to allow us to continue with our touring plans for the spring.  And out of left field, we ended up gaining 3 new members!!  

Things are moving faster now than ever before.  It's truly amazing.  We are so thankful to have such wonder fans who have followed us from the beginning and so many great new fans who we've just met.  

 

Up first is Thomas Moore, or as we call him, Thomas Thomas.  Enjoy!
