The Get Set

The Get Set

The Get Set is a Los Angeles, California rock/alt-pop band.


Formed in 2001, Los Angeles-based The Get Set signed an exclusive recording contract with top independent label, Crank! A Record Company, whose roster also includes The Gloria Record, Mineral, The Icarus Line, and Neva Dinova.

The Get Set's critically acclaimed debut, "Down Marriott Lane!" (released early 2002), featuring the hit song "Best Friend (I Was About To Be)", was produced by renowned producer/songwriter/musician, Rob Laufer (Fiona Apple, Johnny Cash, Melissa Ferrick, Frank Black).

Tokyo-based Trident Style Records inked a deal in 2004 to release "Down Marriott Lane!" in Japan, where the band's sound would thrive.

The Get Set's success was due in part to their ability to combine mod, soul and pop/rock music with melodic songs and well-crafted lyrics.
