Even Tiles began as a solo project by Justin White (formerly of The Atriums and Die Pilot) under the name Justin WW after the collapse of various band attempts. Justin spent the better part of three years crafting songs that could be played as a solo set featuring looping pedals or as a full band. He has self-released two well-received EP’s and several digital releases. Under the Justin WW moniker, he’s shared the stage with, among many others, Chris Staples, Keegan DeWitt, Wild Cub, Jeremy Messersmith, Pree, Jessica Hernandez, and the Deltas.
In the summer of 2012, Justin began rehearsing with four musicians to form the lineup that would eventually become Even Tiles. New songs quickly began to take shape, and their first show was played in September of 2012 alongside My Empty Phantom (Austin). After serving as the opening act for Night Beds’ (Nashville) Midpoint Music Festival performance in Cincinnati, and continuing on to perform with national acts such as The Appleseed Cast (Kansas), The Old Ceremony (Chapel Hill), and The Kopecky Family Band (Nashville), recording began on their first release. Completed late 2013, the six song EP “The Lower Tangent” has drawn favorable comparisons to Broken Social Scene and Deerhunter, and is the result of what each member brings to the writing process.
Even Tiles’ lineup consists of Justin White, Justin Brown, Will Neff, Josh Collins, and Drew James. Each member’s multi-instrumental capabilities allow a flexible approach to orchestration, which lends itself well in live settings to Justin’s lush songwriting.
