1000 Miles From Home is a band full of paradoxes. Formed in 2006 as an outlet for Zac Carrington's songwriting, the band has spent the past two years writing, recording, and regionally touring. Sort of a "geek rock" band, but without the goofy lyrics, their songs are deeply emotional while the music is often upbeat. "We try not to take ourselves too seriously, while at the same time being sort of being serious." The group puts on an energetic live show that is embraced by young audiences and strangely their parents too.
