Originally the musical nom de plume of lead vocalist Nick Thomas, the Spill Canvas eventually became a full-fledged four piece rock band. After selling over 50,000 copies of its indie debut, the South Dakota based band signed to major label Sire and entered the mainstream, hitting the Billboard Top 200 charts with 2007’s NO REALLY, I’M FINE. Sonically, the group mined disparate influences, mixing a heaping helping of 1970s and ‘80s corporate rock and power pop influences with a modern approach informed by the emo/alternative scene. ~ Rovi

The Spill Canvas hails from Sioux Falls, South Dakota and came together when guitarist/vocalist Nick Thomas, originally of the band Nodes of Ranvier, formed the indie/emo group as a side project. Along with his band mate Brian Anderson the duo decided to focus on The Spill Canvas full time. 2004 saw The Spill Canvas secure a record deal with 111 Records and put out their debut album, “Sunsets and Car Crashes.” Anderson left the band shortly thereafter and drummer Joe Beck joined, along with bassist Scott McGuire and guitarist Dan Lundeman. In 2005 The Spill Canvas released their second offering, “One Fell Swoop.” 2006 saw the band sign with Sire Records, while 2007 saw McGuire leave the band and be replaced by Landon Heil. 2007 marked an EP for The Spill Canvas, “Denial Feels So Good.” Their third album, “No Really, I’m Fine,” also arrived in 2007. The album featured guest appearances from Anthony Green and Andrew McMahon on the tracks, “Bleed, Everyone’s Doing It” and “Saved.” In 2010 The Spill Canvas released “Abnormalities,” followed by the EP “Realities,” and a tour with Switchfoot and the Goo Goo Dolls. The band’s seventh studio album, “Gestalt” emerged in 2012.

Nick Thomas, the singer, guitarist, and mastermind behind The Spill Canvas, recorded his first songs at age 15 while growing up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and honed his largely acoustic-based style playing solo shows in and around his hometown. Calling himself The Spill Canvas, Thomas released the raw and emotive Sunsets and Car Crashes, which earned him eager fans around the country. After officially transitioning from solo act to full-fledged rock band, The Spill Canvas recorded their dynamic debut full-length, One Fell Swoop, with producer Ed Rose (The Get-Up Kids), releasing it on One Eleven in May of 2005 to great acclaim, eventually selling more than 50,000 copies.

In 2006, The Spill Canvas signed to Sire Records, which released their major-label debut full-length No Really, I’m Fine in October 2007. Produced by Neal Avron (Fall Out Boy, Wallflowers, Yellowcard), the album climbed to No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s chart and spawned the single “All Over You.” Over the years, the band have toured with Yellowcard, Motion City Soundtrack, Straylight Run, Mae, The Plain White T’s, Augustana, the Hush Sound, and One Republic, and have graced the stages of Austin's annual music festival SXSW, New Jersey's Bamboozle Festival and the Vans Warped Tour — earning them a growing loyal fanbase.
