Their bio lists the band as a trio, with Sawyer John Estok on guitars/vocals, Collin Plank on drums, and Teagan Proctor on bass…but as you can see in the live photos, there’s a lead guitarist called Cameron Schmidt.

According to Sawyer, he and drummer Plank started a band when they were 16 and 17, the four of them met in college and formed Secondhand Sound in 2018.
