for algernon

Jason Wells began performing in Cincinnati, OH around the year 2000 as a solo performer. As time passed he began to acquire some folks to back him up on a few songs. Eventually he began writing certain songs with a band in mind and decided that he would go under the name "for algernon". Their music  "ranges from buoyant indie-pop to darker, broken hearted folk songs with lyrics that make you think Wells has been reading your diary" (M. Breen, citybeat). They recently released an e.p. and are currently finishing work on a new album due in 2014.
