“Our band is a melting pot of different groups and we bring all our different likes together,” said Tom Cegielski. The band was named after the street they started on, Brindley Place, and their hard work has already created a buzz in the Loudoun music scene. They believe that their diverse backgrounds and influences contribute to their meaningful sound.
For Brindley Place, music is much more than a hobby; their passion for it manifests in their daily lives. “There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t play” Grant Mayo said.
For Isabella Farmer, music was associated with comfort when she lived in Columbia. “There was always a language barrier between me and the kids at school, so I didn’t have a lot of friends. I just played music all the time.”
Isabella advises young people to find something you “never get tired of and you don’t mind sacrificing other things for, and pursue it.” Brindley Place is a perfect example banding together to create something legendary, and they’re doing it right here in Loudoun County.
