Boulder Acoustic Society

Boulder Acoustic Society

 Boulder, Colorado, USA

Boulder Acoustic Society is an exciting mix of folk music and indie rock!


BAS’ music is haunted by the past and focused on the future.

It’s indie-folk that draws from Appalachian roots, gritty gospel and the contemporary urban soundscapes. BAS merges tradition with innovation, producing a unique sound and an unforgettable live entertainment experience.

Five years, five albums and relentless touring have honed Boulder Acoustic Society into one of tightest and most entertaining bands of any genre. The pulsing percussion and thumping bass of Scott Aller and Neil McCormick support the dual lead vocals of multi-instrumentalists Scott McCormick and Aaron Keim.

“Punchline,” the band’s current release on Austin’s Nine Mile Records has been hailed at home and abroad for forging “a new wave of American roots music.” The disc also aptly displays the depth of the songwriting of the four members of Boulder Acoustic Society – a band who wears vintage clothes, savor small batch bourbon, rocks the ukulele.

Are they contemporary music with a dark, folky vibe or folk music with poppy hooks and string band textures? Who cares, its BAS and you don’t want to miss them.
