Hailing from the Charlotte area, the band Simplified is features Clee Laster on vocals and guitar, Chris Sheridan on electric and acoustic guitars, Chris Lynch on bass, and Tim Lail on percussion.

In 2004, the band released its debut album, a collection of live tracks recorded at the Double Door Inn in Charlotte. They quickly followed up that effort with a 6-song studio EP highlighting the band's emerging songwriting skills called ACT 1. One song from the album, "Butterflies," was chosen for inclusion on the soundtrack for the feature film The Rest of Your Life.

In 2005, the band launched its own label called Hippizaz Records and is in the process of recording its first full-length album. They have also filmed a recent performance at a packed house at the Visualite Theatre in Charlotte that will be released on DVD.
