"classical-influenced Southern fol rock"
-NPR                

"a band to watch in 2013."
-PopMatters


THE LAST BISON march forward with their full-length debut album for Republic Records (Gotye, The Avett Brothers, Of Monsters & Men, G Love & Special Sauce, Mayer Hawthorne & more), Inheritance, in stores and available via online retailers on March 5, 2013. The band will also be hitting the road for a spring tour that has them traversing the US from February through April, including stops at several music festivals and SXSW along the way.

The Last Bison is anything but typical. The seven-member ensemble led by Ben Hardesty has seemingly risen from the marshes of southeastern Virginia to captivate the national music scene with a rare blend of folk that is poetically steeped in classical influences. Band members describe the sound as "mountain-top chamber." Already the band has drawn flattering though imperfect comparisons to indie rock superstars the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists and Fleet Foxes. Flattering because each of those bands has carried folk rock into the main- stream; imperfect because none of them have a front man that shares the stage with his father and sister, nor uses a 75-year-old chaplain's pump organ and Bolivian goat toenails on stage. The Last Bison is a tight knit community of family and friends that boasts a sound all its own.

The Last Bison's live shows transport audiences from urban music halls to another, less familiar, era. Rich melodies accent unabashedly spiritual lyrics.

PHOX is from Baraboo, WI, which is a place where kids often drink poison and become endowed mutants. This particular half dozen is blessed with madness, illusions of grandeur, and the inability to do the same thing twice. They also play music.

PHOX was named the 14th Best Daytrotter Session coming in front of the likes of Michael Kiwanuka, Polica, M. Ward, The Punch Brothers and many more. They are a band on the rise in 2013!
