Sleeper Agent               

Sleeper Agent first formed in 2008, as a drums-and-guitar duo of Justin Wilson and Tony Smith. After the now six-piece pop-rock group (with female singer Alex Kandel, bassist Lee Williams, guitarist Josh Martin, and keyboardist Scott Gardner) played their first show together in 2010, they decided to put together an eight-song demo. That recording caught the attention of friends Matt & Brad Shultz of Cage the Elephant, and their producer Jay Joyce (Emmylou Harris, The Whigs), who’d go on to produce Sleeper Agent in July 2010 in his Nashville studio. While laying down the tracks for Celabrasion the group teamed up with the Shultz’s and Ryan Zumwalt’s Death Panda imprint leading to a deal with Mom + Pop. All of that happened in just nine months. The key to Sleeper Agent’s steady ascent is disarmingly simple: the band members know how to laugh at themselves, and their songs are joyously melodic. (Possible motto, according to Smith: “Live faster, don’t die”—admittedly a work in progress.)
