The Bystander Effect consists of Beth Ballinger (piano and vocals), Drew Thomas (guitar and vocals), Jason Abarca (drums and occasional exclamations), Sean Stemmerman (all about that bass). The group prides itself on infusing their pop sound with a blues feel that’s been brought into the era of modern rock. Ever wondered what a band put together by Sara Bareilles and John Mayer would sound like? This is it.
Their first EP will be released in December of 2017.
