Acquiring cues from Muse, Coldplay, as well as the Bravery, Seattle alt-rock clothing the Myriad started with university or college students Jeremy Edwardson and John Roger Schofield. Determined to start out a band where all members experienced equal artistic insight, the duo recruited Randy Miller, Jonathan Youthful, and Steven Tracy to become listed on them in the effort. Their debut recording, You Can’t Trust a Ladder, premiered in 2005. The Myriad’s biggest increase came in Dec 2007, when the music group received MTV2’s Dew Circuit Breakout competition. Their video for “A DEFINITE Shot” started rotation within the network in January 2008, the same 12 months that their second recording, With Arrows, With Poise, premiered on Koch Information.
