Pacific Range is rooted in the beautiful, sunshiny-coast of California. The band's style takes from many influences ranging from The Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead, to The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers. Seamus Turner (guitar & vocals) and Nate Ward (drums) met around 2013 while studying music at Chico State. After jamming together and discovering a strong musical connection they formed the band Dakota Cree. Being music students, they utilized the university's recording studio to record an EP. Shortly after, they began performing for different school events and playing local clubs around town.
