Bay Faction at The East Room
The East Room

“It’s a pink corvette,” is the consensus. Bay Faction — James, Kris, Alex — is set to release a new record entitled Florida Guilt this fall, and there is no other way to sum it up besides for as a reverent feminine automobile. The band hasn’t stopped moving. The three conjoined via Facebook at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where they commenced their musical odyssey by playing shows in the Red Room. “It’s a very quiet venue,” said Kris Roman, bassist. “It feels like you should be sitting in that room.” Fast forward to present day, and they’re touring through states like Maryland and Tennessee playing bars and DIY spaces, and two-thirds are living in New York. “I’ve only been here for a year and we’re about to move away,” James McDermott, lead vocalist, and guitarist laughed. Montclair, New Jersey will claim him shortly. As much as he enjoys making friends in the area who attend art schools like Pratt and FIT, he trusts that he will admire it greater from afar, in the backyard of a new house with beloved grass and a driveway. And this way, James and Kris will be living with the drummer Alex Agresti.-by Danielle Chelosky
