THE DIMES BIO Like any good story of biblical proportions, The Dimes' origins begin with brothers: The Sanchez's. Front man Carlos Sanchez and bassist Jose Sanchez would then share their mutual musical appreciation with neighbor and drummer Iram Guerrero while living in the suburban sprawl of West Houston. In 2004, Carlos would meet guitarist Cley Miller in a world geography class freshman year. Soon after, the four coalesced during their freshman and sophomore years of high school into The Dimes. The young men began by rocking the usual battles of the bands and local gigs, the whole while revealing some of their most obvious influences (Talking Heads, Pixies, Television, Beatles, Beach Boys), while keeping some of them to themselves (The Zombies, Neutral Milk Hotel, Taj Mahal, Nick Drake). Taking their brand of intensely youthful (and some times sexy) indie rock pop to the streets, The Dimes began recording a handful of tracks in the studio in 2006. Armed with their self-titled EP, the band garnered local and statewide attention, having been nominated for four 2007 Houston Press Music Awards (Best Indie Act, Best New Act, Best Song for "Delilah" and Best Local Artist) and winning three. "Delilah" was also named as San Antonio "Music For Listeners" radio show's "Song of the Week." Currently working with Houston's Sugarhill Studios on their first LP, The Dimes continue to play with an impressive roster of indie rock acts, including: Tapes 'n' Tapes, Ratatat, French Kicks, Dios (Malos), Voxtrot, Dr. Dog, Matt & Kim and others.
