Biography

basement band is a folk-rock quartet based out of brooklyn, ny. They play original, harmony-driven music that ranges from up-tempo bluegrass to alt.country rock to mellow, acoustic ballads. Their sound has been likened to “Harvest-era” Neil Young or Wilco but the band strives to stand out in the quickly developing folk-rock revival.

Since solidifying their lineup mid 2005, the band has developed an amazingly gracious following in the New York City and Brooklyn areas playing to packed rooms at NYC’s The Living Room and Pianos. The band has also spent many of its weekends playing venues around the Northeast including: Caffe Lena (Saratoga, NY), Red Square (Albany, NY), The Middle East (Boston, MA), and Nectar’s (Burlington, VT).

Their first full-length disc will be released in May 2008.
