The Meyer Straights are five guys originally from Schuylkill County, PA who grew up playing music in the local scene. The band takes it's roots from indie, rock, and pop. The music started out showcasing the song writing of Nick Meyer playing his songs alone opening up gigs and playing open mic nights. Since then the music has grown to be bigger and with that the need for other band members emerged. To fill out the sound Drew Pavlick was brought in to play keys and Josh Iverson to play guitar and lap-steel. At the same time a backbone to the band was needed. Steve Leibensperger and Danny Zyk joined to play drums and bass respectively.
