You Me & Apollo came from the desert of southern Arizona where dirt bakes and cracks. The moniker belongs to Brent Cowles, who began exploring the weight and thirst of the name in 2007 with the writing and release of How To Swim, How To Rot - an EP of songs too harsh to be from the cask and too beautiful to have distilled under moonlight. 2010 found Cowles relocated to Fort Collins, CO, locked away in a basement studio. He emerged with a spirit on his breath and a collection of songs in hand. The 2011 full-length Cards With Cheats spread quickly from ear to ear as things of worth tend to do.
