Since its formation in 2011, Purple Door has been redefining what it means to be a "kid band." Currently juniors at 3 different Chicago high schools, the members of the band are all inspired by a range of genres, and the music they've produced reflects all of those styles within its layers of distinct instrumentation and thoughtful composition. The band is made up of vocalist/guitarist Sam McCarthy, bassist Jacob Gold, drummer Ben Bellick, and guitarist Jacob Baskes. With the release of their newest EP (along with two others) on Spotify and iTunes, as well as regular shows at some of Chicago's most renowned small venues, Purple Door is spreading its upbeat, exciting, alternative rock sound through the city.
