Simple Burden is a hard rocking band hailing from Southern Maine. Founded by front man Dylan Sinclair and bassist Ryan Beagan in September of 2011, the band was filled out with addition of guitarist Joey Clayton (who was also a guitarist in the founders previous project, SHIFT) and drummer (and school mate) Josh Medrano one month later.

The band is currently gearing up for a busy spring and summer gig schedule, as well as working on new original material for the band’s first EP, to be released in the fall of 2013.

In September 2012, Simple Burden was the first runner up in Gorilla Music’s Portland Battle of the Bands, in which they competed against more than 35 other area bands.

Simple Burden has played at numerous venues throughout southern Maine, including: Yankee Lanes, Bayside Bowl, the Big Easy, the Asylum, Westcustogo Hall, and the Old Port Festival
