About Read the Program

Read the Program is a band based in Philadelphia, PA that likes to make the most of it's 2 members, and all 8 limbs available in order to achieve the sound of a full band. The duo consists of Anthony Cubbage on Vocals and Keyboard or Drums, and Jake Walter on Guitars and Drums or Bass, where Jake either drums with foot pedals or bass with foot-keyboard. While the two neighborhood friends met after their drum teacher insisted they get together, they both prefer not to play drums, and found their own respective instruments to experiment with (piano and guitar) and eventually start to write music with. When the first wave of inspiration came to write music, the lyrics were written on the first thing in reach, a paper plate (starting a lasting tradition). 9 paper plates later, and the group was ready to share their music, but in a way that could be perceived as a full band. Read the Program started recording with John Evola in the winter of 2013, overlaying each instrument that could not be played simultaneously. Now the band has worked together a way to get as close to the full band sound on their recordings with just the two they have available, creating an interesting display of multitasking and instrument-switching in their shows.
