The Storied Life is an original rock band from Grand Rapids, MI originally formed in 2005 by brothers Jonas and Jordan Beel. After line-up changes in the spring of 2008, a more aggressive sound developed. Intricate guitar work combined with a tight rhythm section and edgy vocals produces a distinct sound.

The band is now comprised of drummer Dave Koetje (The Orphan), Josh Barnaby (The Veronica Speedwell) along with Jonas Beel on guitars, bassist Ryan Goldner (Go Josephine), and vocalist Jordan Beel. With influences including Shiner, Anberlin, Hum, Thrice and The Almost, The Storied Life hopes to inspire and entertain Grand Rapids and beyond.
