“Band of Lovers is a fun and hip spin on folk music.” ~ Susie Que, TUBE. Magazine
“It’s a golden road trip,” Kate Bee wrote of the debut album from Band of Lovers. Her words also reflect the band’s lifestyle- born on the road in the fall of 2013 and living and touring full-time in their self-converted 1997 Dodge van, the music they write strongly reflects their way of life. With a modern take on folk sound and pop structure, their songs draw inspiration from the stories and landscapes of North America.
“Few songs are sweeter than ‘Tennessee’…” says Christian Carvajal of the single off of the band’s full-length independent release ‘the Coast’ (Feb. 2015). The album has sold over a thousand copies and debuted on local and public radio stations around the country, including NPR affiliates HPPR, KUWR, KXCI, and WRUR.
The constant travel draws new and evolving sounds from the duo, and the fall leg of their tour (with Las Vegas drummer TJ Hoopes) will bring them across the country to the hills of North Carolina, where they plan to hibernate in preparation for the recording of their sophomore album.
Look for a late 2016 release.
