Nestled against the cliffs of San Diego, The Broken Stems have sourced a unique and emotional blend of classic rock, blues and soul that emits a positive wave of energy. A band that believes only in the genre of great music coupled with great performance…don’t be surprised if you’re at a show and hear a blues song with a melodic rock chorus that ends with soulful a Capella. The genius is in the seamless and dynamic transitions that transform an eclectic mix of music into a distinct “Broken Stems” over-tone.

Having played packed shows at some of the largest venues in the San Diego area, including Sold Out shows at the House of Blues. The Broken Stems have planted thier roots in the music scene and are growing into new territory. Currently in the studio, The Broken Stems are recording the follow up to 2013’s “We Are Home EP,” available Summer of 2015.

The Broken Stems are Jesse Gawlik (Vocals/Guitar), Chelsea Baker (Bass/Vocals) Brad Sweet (Keyboards/Vocals), and Andrew Bache (Drums).
