Friends since their childhood days in Durham, NC, Johnny Irion (vocals, guitar), Ryan Pickett (guitar), Chris Hollaway (bass), and Zeke Hutchins (drums) held their first rehearsals for Queen Sarah Saturday in 1990. Thirsty Ear released the band's debut EP in August 1993, followed one year later by the full-length Weave. Although the band's messy, melodic power pop never found a national audience, the song "Seems" was memorably featured in the 1995 film Empire Records, and frontman Johnny Irion went on to enjoy a modest career with his solo albums and collaborative projects with wife Sarah Lee Guthrie.
