Based in Bloomington Indiana, Sleeping Bag began as Dave Segedy's solo drum project (then called "Whoa Bro Awesome"). Segedy
started flirting with melody and was joined by Lewis Rogers on guitar and David Woodruff on bass, two front-men singers in their own right. Dave Segedy remains the group's songwriter and primary vocalist.
Rogers' departed from the group in 2012, Tyler Smith joined on guitar.
