It's been five years since singer-songwriters Brandon Daly and Braden Ashworth teamed up and began writing songs and performing them in the elevators and dorm lounges for passing students at Mankato State University. The band went by the name "The Evermore Escape" for three years, before making the transition to All The Right Moves in 2008.
Creating quite a buzz in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul scene, in 2008 All The Right Moves released their debut self-title EP, which led to their victory in the national Fox 9 “Cravings to Go” Battle of the Bands, which also landed them a spot in a state-wide broadcasting Pizza Hut television commercial. ATRM has also played select dates throughout the Midwest on the Vans Warped Tour, in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
The band’s debut EP climbed all the way to the #8 spot on the Smartpunk.com charts for the Best Selling Albums in early 2009, and they held strong in the Top 100 for over a year. They have had the opportunity to share the stage with many national acts, playing opening slots for the likes of: All Time Low, Mayday Parade, Valencia, Lucky Boys Confusion, Every Avenue, The Audition, Hawthorne Heights, Emarosa, and local Minneapolis favorites such as Quietdrive, Sing It Loud, Take Cover, Jamestown Story, Swimming With Dolphins, Hyland, Lights Out Dancing, and Four Letter Lie.
In June of 2010 the band released a second, follow-up EP entitled "The Monster I've Become", as well as a 7-song acoustic "Unplugged" EP, which featured some new songs as well as a handful of the band's songs, remade with focus on piano, violin, and acoustic guitar. “This is only the beginning”, states singer/songwriter Brandon Daly, “because in our eyes, nothing is better than doing what you love…”
