The Westchester, New York, quintet Minutes Like Ours began in 2009 as the duo of bassist/vocalist Tom Simmons and vocalist/pianist Matt Maher. Becaues of the latter’s background—he’s a former Division I All-American baseball player—the band take a disciplined approach to their buoyant piano-pop. “Musicians usually have this stigma of being lazy and carefree,” Maher says. “We work an inordinate amount to take our band to the next level. After practices, meetings, photo shoots and recording sessions, I spend hours online personally writing back to every comment, message or post [from fans].”
