Art-pop rockers the Mosaic Quartet includes frontman Jonathan Belanger (JB), keyboardist Chetan Tierra, bassist Melissa Creider, and drummer Patrick Knightly.
Belanger and Tierra originally met in 2004 and began writing together while in conservatory studying classical piano. They formed a close friendship and later moved across the country together to San Diego, to pursue their love of music-making.
The band recorded demos with T-Bone Burnett in February 2012.
