The Summer Set

There’s nothing like a great song — especially one that puts a spring in your step. The Summer Set, a pop-rock band from Scottsdale, Arizona, knows how to capture the essence of a fun and carefree time — like summer — in their music. Maybe it’s because this foursome grew up in different parts of the AZ and all that sunshine sunk into their tracks. Or, maybe they just really like to play. “My whole life is pretty fun, I live for fun, it hasn’t gotten old yet, I hope it never does,” said bassist Stephen Gomez in an email in 2010.

However, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona when I was eight years old and spent the majority of my life growing up there. I have nothing but love for my hometown of Phoenix. Growing up there got me to where I am today since it is where I met the Gomez Brothers and started playing music with them,” she recently explained.

Whatever the reason for their warm and happy vibe, this band is perfect for a post homework pick-me-up or while you’re working out. In fact, that’s how guitarist Josh Montgomery prepares for a show, with “stretching and medicine ball training.” And, it sounds like he’ll be doing that a lot over the next year. According to band members, Brian Dales, Jessica Bowen, John Gomez, Stephen Gomez and Josh Montgomery, the Summer Set is off on another tour this summer. Bowen shared, “hopefully, I’ll be able to travel to countries I have never been to before. I love my job and hope to do this as long as I can.”

The tour is supporting their latest album, Legendary. It celebrates milestones like graduation, and just being a good friend. You can hear three tracks from it right here!
