The Influencers are a three- piece Indie Rock band from Glen Cove Long Island:

The Influencers

The band formed in 2010 and have released three full length studio albums:

  • Deepwater Horizon (2012)
  • Running In Circles (2013)
  • Valhalla (2015)

    Their music blew up overnight thanks to another Glen Cove native and now widely popular YouTuber, Danny Casale (aka Coolman Coffee Dan) featured their music on one of his videos.

    The band has been reviewed positively by other well-known Long Island natives, The Alessi Brothers, and indie publications such as Indie Music Magazine who said, “these guys have a knack for poppy beats, dreamy guitars, storybook lyrics and flowing melodies”.

    And although they had modest success in the past, in 2013 the band went on hiatus.

    During this time the band members worked on other local projects. Steven Suarez, the drummer for the band, worked with artists at Richie Cannata’s Cove City Sounds Studios while Evan Yan, the writer and singer for the band worked on producing other musicians such as Matt Grabowski.

    Now, The Influencers are back with fire and energy in their new song, “Dancing On Graves”, a song aptly named and written about embracing their past, life choices and who they are. Evan stated, “the song is really about capitalizing on second chances, embracing your past and celebrating them as a part of who you are. We feel this is our second chance and we are going to make the most of it”.
