Carquinez Straits

Roots rock band formed in Sacramento, CA area in 1999 by Jed Brewer and former Toadmortons member, Greg Hain.

Brewer formed Carquinez Straits in part due to the uncertain nature of his other band, Harvester, once signed to Geffen Records. With members scattered over two states, Harvester’s periodical hiatuses left Brewer with lots of songs and nobody to play them with. So he formed a new band with Hain, guitarist Mark Searle (Forty Fingers, Blind Illusion) and drummer Brian Grattidge (Beatrice 9, Thornucopia).
