Max Nunery and Harold Hensley Met in 2012. They were introduced by a mutual friend and set out on a musical journey to create a sonic, folk and dance project. After song writing began they quickly slid down the slope to creating something more acoustic and roots driven. After putting an add on Craigslist for an upright bass player Chip Pritchard answered the add. Chip coming from a long musical history, playing in more traditionally based bluegrass groups, brought a brand new element to the table.Song writing continued and found its way even further into the soil looking for roots. The three worked up several songs and eventually picked 5 to be released on the 2012 release "Early Drive Ep". This Ep ranged from sleepy folk and roots rock to ballads and a bit of newgrass. In July 2012 they were looking to expand their sound even more and called up a friend to fill the voids on mandolin and fiddle. Brian Spirk came into the rehearsals with guns blazing, bringing an even deeper taste of traditional playing. Brian Spirk having a long musical background in traditional music has opened one more door for The Repeating Arms. The four piece string special are currently playing a festival or venue near you.
