Formed in 2009 by Steven Reker and Luke Fasano (of Yeasayer), People Get Ready began as a project conceived by the pair as a way to merge the worlds of contemporary dance performance and indie rock. Based out of New York City, the pair initially cut their teeth with a series of performances based on material Reker had written during his time spent touring as a live guitarist for David Byrne. The following year, Reker recruited Jen Goma and James Rickman to fill out the lineup, and after another series of successful performances at the Kitchen in New York, the quartet released a self-titled EP as well as the companion remix EP, Rusty Greg Jherek Luke, on Quite Scientific. Their eponymous full-length debut, People Get Ready, arrived the following year on Brassland. ~ Gregory Heaney
