The Show Ponies are an Indie-Folk band with Old Tyme Country influences, striking a balance between old and new; joy and sorrow; rough and tender. The band started in 2011 as the combined musical creativity of Clayton Chaney and Andi Schrock.; Schrock is a native Texan, while Chaney was born in Texas and raised in Arkansas. Heading to Los Angeles at different times for unrelated reasons, they eventually found themselves singing, writing, and performing together. Jason Harris, fellow musician and Texan, initially introduced the duo. Harris jumped at the opportunity to produce The Show Ponies' debut album, "Here We Are!", bringing his extensive training in music composition to the project. Shortly after recording the album, Harris officially joined The Show Ponies as their guitarist and banjo player. Philip Glenn joined the group after recording fiddle tracks with the band. Glenn is considered by many to be one of the top young fiddle players in the country; before joining the other Ponies in the studio, Glenn attended the Mark O'Conner Fiddle Camp where he was awarded the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin. Kevin Brown soon became the fifth Pony, lending his drumming expertise while earning his masters degree in percussion performance from CSU Long Beach. Very rarely do five people with such exceptional talent join together to create such a cohesive sound. The Show Ponies play regularly throughout the west coast to support their debut album "Here We Are!", released in April 2012. They are ramping up momentum to tour the country and record their next album.
