Originally a solo project for guitar and mandolin player, David Galbraith, until he found Taylor Keding, drummer and vocalist. They played together for many months until their first show together in late 2008
Sensing a lack of instrumentation in their music, Galbraith and Keding added members Jeremy Hart (Electric Guitar), Parker Abbott (Bass), and Steve Wasilczuk (Saxophone) and began playing regularly together in Wausau, WI in early 2009. Soon after the band's first few shows, David Burgess replaced Keding as Lead Vocalist for the band, making up the members it has today.
Since their first shows at Rockwater Entertainment Center in Wausau, WI, TSA has since played shows at The Rave/Eagle's Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI and won the Regional Launchpad Competition in Eau Claire, moving them on to the finals in Madison. Along with live performances, TSA recorded (with Rockgarden Studios under Producer/Engineer Marc Golde, Appleton, WI) and released its first EP "a' fleet gazelle" in April of 2009.
