We are Here To Make Friends


"Here To Make Friends" is an indie rock trio that currently resides in the beautiful Kalispell, Montana. It is comprised of Tabitha Spencer, Paul Merendino Jr., and Nate Slemmer.  A few of their musical influences are David Bowie, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jon Brion, and Carole King.  They love performing classic rock from the 60's and 70's, and always aim to put on a fun show that incorporates their best original work and cover songs they know their fans will enjoy!

Tabitha and Paul met while they were working as musicians overseas, and returned to Tabitha's hometown to start working on songwriting and producing Paul's original songs. Nate came onto the scene in 2016, and joined into the mix perfectly- being an Ohio transfer to the mountains, and having studied music at the same university as Paul. They currently have two EPs on the market. The first is entitled "Nothing But The Best", and the second is entitled "Restless Eyes".
