Biography http://www.ransomandthesubset.com/ Ransom and the Subset is an American alternative rock band based in Seattle, Washington. With a refreshing pop-rock sound, their music is clearly driven by strong melodies and well-crafted arrangements. Along with infectious hooks and witty, insightful lyricism, Ransom and the Subset delivers a dynamic blend of power pop from decades past along with a strong element of modern rock. Ransom and the Subset is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/guitarist RanDair Porter. Heavily stocked with self-made demos, Porter sought out and engaged with the talent of producer/multi-instrumentalist Brian E. King (OranJuly and Parks) and Grammy-winning engineer/mixer Ducky Carlisle. The team of three collaborated to create their debut album No Time to Lose Over the course of a year, Porter flew to Boston to work with King and Carlisle on the album, making a stop in NYC where he worked with Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne) as well. The famed artist contributed both guitar and bass guitar to the track “Sticking Onto You". Intermixed with many flights across the country, Porter also sought out collaboration at home in Seattle. Luck and perseverance served in his favor, as he garnered the talent of great Seattle musicians like Jon Memolo, Mike Musburger (formerly of the Posies) on drums and Mike Squires (formerly with Harvey Danger) on bass guitar, providing the driving rhythm section for “Leaving With You”.
