Person L is an American rock band fronted by Kenny Vasoli, of the pop punk band The Starting Line.

The group also consists of drummers Brian Medlin and Ryan Zimmaro (previously of the band The Prize Fight), bassist Charles Schneider (previously of the band The Suicide Pact) with keyboardist and guitarist Nate Vaeth.


Person L was founded by the Starting Line vocalist/guitarist Kenny Vasoli in winter 2006. Vasoli then brought members of the Minor Times, Inkling, the Prize Fight and the Suicide Pact into the group.[1] The band performed their first show on December 22 in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.[2] Person L released a split single with Weatherbox in May 2008.[3] He initially wrote the song, "Storms", while on the road with The Starting Line. Person L's debut record Initial was released on August 5 on Vasoli's own label, Human Interest.

During the summer of 2008, Person L went on tour with Anthony Green and Good Old War in support of their debut record. The tour consists of bands all from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, whose lead singers are from other bands that have had success. Keith Goodwin of Good Old War was formerly of Days Away and Anthony Green of Circa Survive. Following the tour with Anthony Green, Person L toured shortly with Motion City Soundtrack, followed by a tour in support of Underoath. Following that, Person L went on tour with Steel Train and spent summer 2009 touring with Mae and then Ace Enders. In 2010 they opened for Copeland on their farewell tour, also with I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business.
