Street To Nowhere is an indie/alternative rock band from Oakland, California.


Since its birth, Street To Nowhere has gone through many changes. Founded in 2001 by Singer/Songwriter Dave Smallen, Bassist/Backing Vocals Spenser Russell-Snyder and Drummer Stefan Litrownik, the band began as a pop-punk trio and ended up becoming one of the mainstays of the L3 concert series in Oakland [] . During 2002 the band recorded The Oakland EP and a number of demos, but after high school, the original members of the band went their separate ways, leaving Dave Smallen without a band.

This, however, did not stop him from playing shows; still using the name Street To Nowhere, he continued to play solo acoustic shows, including Live 105's "Battle of the Bands" in 2004, which won him a spot on the local stage at Live 105's BFD that year. Since then Street To Nowhere has shared the stage with bands such as The Format, Gomez, Jack's Mannequin, Two Gallants, OK GO, Maxeen, Reel Big Fish, The Matches, and in 2007 returned to the BFD local stage as headliners.

Street To Nowhere has since re-filled the vacancies in the band with drummer Joey Bustos (Link 80)/(Desa), lead guitarist Will Hauser, and bassist Bryce Freeman. On occasion Street To Nowhere is joined on stage by violinist Anton Patzner of Judgement Day, Audrye Sessions, and Bright Eyes.

In November 2005, Street To Nowhere released their first full length album, Charmingly Awkward, at a sold out show at San Francisco's Bottom of the Hill. The album was a bit of a collaborative project with other members of Bay Area bands (including Desa, The Matches, and Push To Talk) who provided vocals for the drunken hollering and singing at the end of the song Tipsy. Anton Patzner (Audrye Sessions, Judgement Day, Bright Eyes) plays the violin in the songs Screamin', Boxcars Boxcars and You Can't Go to Sleep.

They released a 7" EP in July 2006 through Agent Records featuring the songs "Hallelujah" (a cover of Leonard Cohen's original) and "It's Not Me".

Street to Nowhere was signed to Capitol Records in June 2006.
