Symfinity is a symphonic rock band, founded by Seann Branchfield (vocals/guitar) and Nicole Schroeder (flute), initially known as "Seann Branchfield and the Unnamed Band" from summer 2009 to summer 2010. They have performed with over 40 guest musicians, playing all types of orchestral instruments since founding the band, playing parts of the orchestration that Branchfield has composed. In addition to playing clubs in New York, they have played across the country in various cities in Pennsylvania, Oregon, Rhode Island and Georgia. The band is currently touring with a new line up and working on their second album with full orchestra.
Seann Branchfield is an atypical rock musician. Growing up, studying classical piano, oboe, violin and trumpet, he became a composer and majored in music in college. While teaching himself bass and guitar and spending a fair amount of time singing as well, he eventually started songwriting. He has studied with composer David Del Tredici. While pursuing a graduate degree at The City College of New York, he decided that the rock songs he has written over the years would be worth orchestrating. After adding orchestral parts to the rock songs and while working on a second masters degree in music at New York University, he met future bandmates and the concept of recording Intangible Dreams and making Symfinity became a reality.
