The In Between is a loud, hard hitting, and soulful power-trio from San Juan Capistrano, CA.
On March 27th 2008 Jared Devore ends up at Tyler Marolf’s home studio to see if any magic might happen. Never having met before, the synergy and flow was unlike anything they had experienced before. The In Between was born that night. Bob Miller has since joined The In Between to play ye old thunder-stick to complete the line up. With the first album about to release and a 2nd well on its way the wheels are turning my friends.
On their way to releasing their first album in November 2009, getting their material placed on the 4th episode of A&E’s “The Beast” with Patrick Swayze and playing shows all over Southern California, The In Between has gained loyal fans drawn to their honest perspective on life’s experiences from the darkest despair to true hope and triumph.
Tyler Marolf, Chris Bates and Sean Walbrink all bring a very powerful and unique sound all their own which defines The In Between and have plans to expand their discography in 2011 with a 2nd album.
Guaranteed to blow your minds live or on their record we introduce you to the world according to The In Between. The wheels are turning.
Tyler Marolf – Vocalist, Guitars, Lyrics
The wailing soulful guitar and piercing vocal stylings of Tyler Marolf harken listeners back to the essence of why people love great rock music.
Playing with complete passion, the memorable licks and heart wrenching lyrics make Tyler truly one of the gifted ones! Tyler has been creating music since his early teens, performing and writing songs throughout. His virtuosity on multiple instruments has given him a unique “less is more” style that symbolizes his sound.
Tyler has a knack for writing songs that resonate deep and cut to the heart and soul of The In Between’s powerful “nothing left to give” brand of rock music.
Tyler also owns and operates the Los Rios Rock School in San Juan Capistrano where he teaches everything he knows to the kids and adults of the community.
Chris Bates – Drums
Hard hitting power mixed with deep driving bass drum grooves defines the unique style of drummer Chris Bates.
Dynamically his playing shows a “music first” mentallity that deeply enhances the band’s sound. For over 20 years, Chris has been electrifying crowds with his over the top big style.
He has played in many different bands over the years touring throughout California and performing in some of Hollywood’s most famed venues.
As the percussive backbone to this power trio, Chris Bates brings a massive energy that helps The In Between stand out as a big, hard driving yet soulful force to be reckoned with.
Sean Walbrink – Bass
Sean M. Walbrink has slapped many things in his life. Mostly different kinds of meat. Currently he is holding down slapping bass for The In-Between. With a bass sound so huge one might start to wonder what else does he have that is huge….? A heart, duh.
Sean puts everything he has into live performances and can often be seen wielding his bass above his head like a fricken wild Comanche Indian ready to shoot lightning to the nations out of the top of his bass. If you come to see him with the In-Between you are almost guaranteed to get a rock n roll jihad called down upon your ears.
