Gatsby's American Dream Bio

Gatsbys American Dream (also known as GAD, Gatsby's, or Gatsby) is a Seattle-based indie rock band. Since their founding in 2002, they have released four full-length albums and one EP. They have also appeared on several compilations with original songs and covers. Gatsbys American Dream drew their name from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

Although the band is difficult to classify into one subgenre, it can be said that they draw influence from alternative, progressive rock, pop/rock, hardcore punk, indie pop, indie rock, post-hardcore, and heavy metal.

The prototypes for the songs on the band's first record, Why We Fight, were (according to Bobby) written by his earlier band, One Point Two. This band was made up of Bobby, Casey Bates, Josh Berg, and Dustin McGhie. The group later met up with the former guitarist and singer of Good for Nothing, Nic Newsham and Ryan Van Wieringen, and formed Gatsbys American Dream. Although Casey Bates never joined the band, he has remained their producer throughout the band's career.
