Formed in Minneapolis, MN, in 1997 by Tom Berg, Conrad Mach and Brian Heitzman, Self-Evident have since developed and applied a unique, intricate and smart formula to standard rock songwriting, conjuring music that is very resistant to categorization.

Self-evident has played more than 700 shows in 24 states and nine countries with countless bands such as Don Caballero, TTNG, Tera Melos, into it. over it, Ahleuchatistas, Oxes, Juno, Chokebore, & Local H, to name a few.
The summer of 2006 brought the departure of Brian Heitzman, original drummer of 9+ years. Longtime pal and superstar Ben Johnston of Clair de Lune immediately came to the rescue and has since brought a new life, discipline, and musical influence to the band.
They have since recorded three full-lengths, an EP, and recently released an album mixed with some new, some old, and some covers.
