Patience Please are a pop band from Seattle, Washington. This story begins as a collaboration between Ray Proudfoot (vocals, guitar) and Keenan Dowers (rhodes and electric organ, vocals). The two went to high school together, during which time Keenan played bass for the Seattle/Bellingham band Paxil Rose. They worked together closely through the summer of 2005, until they came to the conclusion that their project needed more members- and a name. Jordan Michelman has played bass all his life, most recently as a member of Altamont and Tacoma's Maladie (now Sonance).
