Described as, “one of the most ground-breaking musical experiences one might just have in a lifetime” by Jonathan Frahm at Yahoo Voices, The Accidentals are just getting started.
From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over a seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.
After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio
drummer and opened for musical greats such as; Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, SHEL, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Solee, Seth Glier, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, and more.
They scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux (Glassnote Records), and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble while touring the US extensively.
In 2015 alone, they have played over 200 shows at some of the most prestigious venues and largest festivals in the US including The Fillmore, The Vogue Theater, Frederik Meijer Garden, Summerfest, Electric Forest, Summer Camp Festival, Blissfest, Wheatland, Earthworks Harvest Gathering etc.
They are currently recording with Grammy Award Winning Producer, Stewart Lerman (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, Regina Spektor), and Pop Icon, Marshall Crenshaw. Look for a brand new release in the coming months and hang on tight…its proving to be quite the ride.
