Teenage indie acoustic guitar band Mutant Little league were only available in early 2009 in Greensboro, NEW YORK. Vocalist/guitarist Tyler Byers, drummer Marshall Holian, guitarist Matt Northrup, and bassist Joseph Doak had been school close friends who had developed playing music collectively. Mutant League discovered the four kids melding the impact of early indie acoustic guitar shredders like Sonic Youngsters or Dinosaur Jr. using the stylistic strategy of the popular followers of these bands, ie. Crazy Nothing at all, Yuck, and Abe Vigoda. In 2011, Holian still left the band to spotlight his new family members, and Northrup quit to pursue a single project. The rest of the members earned drummer Patrick Sheehan, paring Mutant Group down from quartet to a trio to keep playing displays and focusing on new materials for upcoming recordings.
