The Unauthorized Absence name goes back to the origins of the band in 2008 when all four of the original members worked for the same company in our day-jobs and we used to take off work early to jam and learn new songs. Two of the original lineup (Lee and Tapani) still worked for the same company until very recently and, on occasion, would still have to duck out of the office early to make a show or rehearsal.
Our classic rock music can best be described as the soundtrack of our lives as we play the music we love to listen to. Each song resonates with our audiences and we get transported back in time every night when we're on stage!
