Nomad vs. Settler (NvS) came together in the summer of 2014 when Putney School freshman Archer Parks (lead guitar) and BAMS eighth-grader Rei Kimura (vocals, rhythm guitar) began collaborating to see what kind of music they could create. The duo soon added bassist-guitarist Owen James (seventh grade, Hilltop Montessori) and most recently, drummer Milou Rigollaud (a junior at Four Rivers Charter School), creating undeniable youthful chemistry and magnetism.
In November 2015, Nomad vs. Settler took the top prize in Brattleboro Youth Services’ biannual Battle of the Bands: 10 hours of studio recording time donated by David Snyder, of Guilford Sound. The band completed the recording of their debut CD, a compilation of five original songs that highlight the range and complexity of NVS’s repertoire.
