After returning from a brief tour in India, The Disparrows began work on their third album in their hometown of Hollywood, CA. Reviews from Rolling Stone India &the Indian press celebrating the American Rock band's acceptance by the international crowds were fuel to a group that has run on fire and passion.

The band started in June 2009 with the meeting of Singer/ Guitarist Daniel Weber and Bassist Stephen Tecci. A brief jam session resulted in instant realization of chemistry and mutual interest in Blues-Rock bands. The two spent the following month in Tecci's home studio recording what would become their first album. During the recording and creative process Tecci called up old friend Grant Loosvelt to add keys to the tracks. The playing went so well, it became evident that the three had come across something bigger that just recording an album. According to Tecci, "We clicked, we knew we had something special, and we knew it was the right time to bring back that 70's dirty rock feel with a touch of modern composition. Daniel was a big Dylan fan, and had a knack for story telling in song, words with meaning and something that was quotable, as well as singable."

The band initially brought in drummer Mike Brasic from Ceesau who had a very hard hitting John Bonham style. Over the next two years the band toured the west coast building a live show of catchy tunes filled out by energetic jam sessions. They brought in the feel and style from the best of 60's and 70's groups and added a modern sound to top it off.

The maturity of The Disparrows as a band is very apparent in their third album 'Wasting Time', however, the chemistry and musicianship that transcends friendship to a brotherhood of sound can never be estimated without the experience of their live performance.
