Bassist/vocalist Thomas Vitale met brothers Coby and Niko Porlier at a New Years party in 2008. After reconnecting a year later at another New Years party and learning they had similar musical tastes, they started jamming together, adding two other friends, and forming Edelweiss in 2010. These Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, natives have a sound that can be labeled everything from “Chinese pop” to indie rock. “We are completely unique to our town, so we [stood out] amongst all the pop/metal/grunge bands around us.” Vitale notes. “It gained us the publicity we needed to make our way out of town into bigger cities and shows.”
