Bio

Loaded for Bear was formed in October of 2007 near Portland, Oregon as a slow confluence of mutual musical interests centering around a growing collection of songs originally written for the piano. After more than a year of writing and arranging, the four-piece spent the fall of 2008 and winter of 2009 recording and mixing their full-length debut album ‘A Following Sea’ with Justin Phelps of Hawthorne Bridge Recording. The record was mastered by Ed Brooks at RFI in Seattle in the spring and was released in July of 2009.The music is atmospheric, melodic, piano-based rock backed by progressive beats and autumnal layers of guitars, organs, Rhodes, and strings. The trance-like, dreamy vocals and haunting post-rock elements make music that deals in images and moods. The songs are pieces of hills and fog and trees and creeks and space and old-world carnival and a compass rose.
