Primarily a solo project for singer/guitarist James Lombardo, One Hundred Paces formed in the winter of 2010 after Lombardo's band The Little Heroes were on hiatus. Lombardo enlisted the help of long time friend Sean Price and fellow Santa Barbara musician, Sarah Corum to help shape his musical vision into an actual functioning band. Several shows followed along with a 6 song self titled EP from Wednesday Records and moderate success having been selected by MTV to appear on the network's soundtrack to Teen Mom.
