After just being dubbed the Breakout Band of 2015 by Billboard, The Accidentals will be headed back to Austin, TX for SXSW.
However, their 2016 looks to be even more promising! With Katie Larson (bass, guitar, piano, cello, vocals), Savannah Buist (bass, guitar, piano, violin, vocals) and Michael Dause (drums, guitar, backing vocals), the trio are currently in the studio with Grammy Award winning producer Stewart Lerman (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, Regina Spektor) and the legendary Marshall Crenshaw recording their upcoming album, due out later this year.
The gentle blend of indie-rock, folk, and funk were the talk of Folk Alliance International last month with Kansas City Star calling them, “tight, focused and original” and Elmore noticing they, “romp loud and proud through their own material, and surely are on their way up. Toasting their success will have to wait until they’re old enough to drink, though.”
