Vacation Manor is a four-piece indie rock band from Lynchburg, Virginia consisting of Nathan Towles (guitar, vocals), Dane Spearman (bass), Cole Young (drums), and Carson Cody (keys). The band formed in the fall of 2014 almost instantaneously after Towles, Spearman, and Young agreed to play as Towles' backing band for a Battle of the Bands in Washington, DC. After having practiced and performed collectively for the first time, the band had two finished songs and had won the competition all in under 24 hours.
Over the past year the band has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with several local and national acts including Magic Man, Civil Twilight, Colony House, and many more. The group’s combination of bright melodies with unique chord structures and strong pop drum beats bear resemblance to artists such as Young the Giant, Leagues, and the War on Drugs.
Having released their first single “A Toast and a Spirit” in October 2015, the band released their debut EP, Girl, Say, in Spring 2016. Now the band continues to write and play shows around the East Coast.
