Within the realm of Indie Folk Rock, our unique sound features expansive horn and string arrangements complemented by a deep hitting rhythm section to create a rich and layered sound. Our live concert experience intertwines intimacy and raw energy to create a one-of-a-kind show. Our music has drawn comparisons to artists like Black Country, New Road; Bon Iver; and Big Thief. The band consists of Sam DuBose (vocals, guitar), Casey Cheatham (drums, vocals), Tyler Thenstedt (bass, vocals), Connor Hoyt (alto sax), Sam Uribe Botero (tenor sax, electronics), Callum Roberts (trumpet, guitar), and Kaysen Chown (strings, guitar).

After releasing our debut album, “Grip Your Fist, I’m Heaven Bound” in 2021, we are currently working on our second studio album, set to release in the Fall.
