THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT
Over their 30-year career, The String Cheese Incident (SCI) has emerged as one of America’s most significant independent bands. Born in 1993 in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, SCI has since released numerous albums, such as Untying the Not, Rhythm of the Road, and Song in My Head, featuring fan-favorite songs including “Sirens,” “This Must Be the Place,” “Get Tight” and “Rosie.” The band has also put out several DVDs and countless live recordings from their relentless tour schedule.
In addition to their commitment to musical creativity and integrity, SCI has also been recognized for their community spirit, philanthropic endeavors and innovative approach to the business of music.
With the internet as their tool, SCI was among the first artists to disseminate information online, such as tour dates and release information, to their growing fan base. Rather than focusing on “the bottom line,” SCI put their music and their fans first, opening a ticketing company, a merchandise company and a fan travel agency to best serve their community. The band’s record label, SCI Fidelity Records, embraced downloadable music and file sharing, delivering SCI’s “On The Road” series, where every show the band plays is made available for download.
Early on, the band took a serious interest in giving back to the communities that they visited, and they were among the first performers to encourage “Green” shows and tours.
All the while, the band has stayed committed to music as a creative endeavor in their recordings and live performances. The list of SCI’s special guests and collaborators is long and diverse. Their annual events, such as Electric Forest, Hulaween and New Year’s Eve, have helped redefine the concert experience and have garnered the band a reputation as live music vibe innovators.
