Raines already had many songs written, so the band immediately got to work. Seraplane's first summer was spent practicing in Coleman’s garage, and the band played at a few places around Jackson, including Main Street Live and Starbucks. Seraplane recorded a number of demos that were released on myspace, which were all received very positively. The musical project was put on hold for a while as school started and Shivley went across state to UT Knoxville.
Raines and Shivley continued to work separately on newer material. During this time, Coleman and the band parted ways and a long-time friend of Seraplane, Garrett Hinson, took up bass and backing vocal duties. Seraplane made further inroads in the Jackson music scene in Spring of 2009. They played in March at Lambuth University, then returned in April for AOII’s Band Benefit Concert when they were one of the opening bands for Ingram Hill. In October of 2009, Hinson and Jones left Seraplane to better focus on their other musical project, Hockaday.
Raines and Shivley continued to work together, and in March started recording their debut E.P. with producer Will Hadley. Seraplane released their first studio recording titled Seraplane E.P. in May of 2010. Raines and Shivley are looking forward to promoting the E.P.
and playing more live shows this summer. What they lack in funds they make make for in ingenuity and persistence, and they are helped along by their supportive friends and fan group. Seraplane looks forward to whatever the future may hold. Read more on Last.fm.
