The Make release “Solar Light” single

The Make
The Make, a relatively new project featuring former Number One Gun members Jeff Schneeweis and Trevor Sellers (and Sarah Ann from See You Soon), have released a new catchy single: “Solar Light.” With one EP and a smattering of singles released here and there since forming in 2011 in Chico, CA, (UPDATE: Oops! I was simultaneously reading all of the crazy zombie news happening while writing this post and originally reported the band was from Michigan. My apologies.) the music is definitely a departure from the stylings of Number One Gun. The trio opts for synth-heavy dance pop over NOG’s signature sweeping layered pop rock. Whether or not the departure will be for the better or worse for Schneeweis and Sellers is yet to be seen, but in the meantime we sure are digging Solar Light.

Also of note: The Make are the cornerstone of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ (yes, you read that correctly) record label Suspended Sunrise.

    This is great! Just FYI, The Make is from Chico, A, not Michigan:)

      That’s supposed to say CA, not A;)

    This song is great! I love everything Jeff Schneeweis makes. However, I find it kind of odd that even though they are the only band on the Suspended Sunrise label, the label itself has made no mention of this new single whatsoever. Isn’t that their job to at least mention it on their Facebook or something? So weird. Get it together, Aaron and company. These guys are not getting the attention they deserve.

      Yeah that is kinda strange. Their website ( looks to be still under construction, though. Maybe Aaron Rodgers needs to win another Super Bowl before he can afford to hire a PR team. The song is great, regardless. Hope for much more from Mr. Schneeweis & co.

        Haha, totally. Yeah, the site has been under construction since they introduced the band last summer. I’m sure they can afford a blog while the site is being built. C’mon dudes. I can’t wait for the upcoming album either, especially after hearing Solar Light.
