"Campus Circle (July 2011)"

“Captivating and charming its audience from beginning to end.”

“Hearing real vocal talent and good old acoustic guitar skills from young newcomers is a special treat, and Song Preservation Society offers just that to those lucky enough to be in the know.”

“An impressive show that is simultaneously refreshing and evocative.”

“The trio’s music, with their sweet-sounding voices and astounding guitar skills, is reminiscent of the poignancy of a Simon & Garfunkel record, only updated with youthful energy and fresh appeal.”

"Neon Tommy (November 2011)"

“Song Preservation Society carry a fresh, excited youth that is simply novel in their burgeoning genre.”

“Song Preservation Society’s soft, tenor voices melt together as if they were one, with harmonies and melodic intricacies. No synths. No pitch adjustment. Just euphony.”

“When the men of up-and-coming acoustic trio Song Preservation Society play a set, something strange happens — it almost sounds as though their guitars start talking to each other. One calls out to the other, while the third jabbers away in the background. As the music reaches deep down within and awakens something visceral, you can almost make out what they are saying.”

"LA Music Blog (August 2011)"

“Remarkable charisma.”

“Preserving and propagating the best qualities of folk music.”

“The laid-back sound of Song Preservation Society lay somewhere between Paul Simon and Bon Iver, leaning to the more modern side of folk.”

“You get glimmers of artistry from yesteryear, but then SPS does something to bring you back to the present. The blending of old and new provides for familiar, yet inspiring territory.”

-Monica Hunt, LA Music Blog - LA Music Blog

"Music Connection (October 2011)"

“What the Shins are to the movie Garden State, Song Preservation Society could be to a potential Golden State.”

“SPS write songs of love and life as taught by their Woodstock predecessors, and these kids have learned it well.”

“Though there are only three guitars, there are, in effect, a total of six instruments, with the act’s masterful harmonies being as important as the stellar guitar skills of Daniel Wright.”

“There are bands out there that are successful in this genre, but none with the vocal prowess of this act.”

The indie alt-folk group, SONG PRESERVATION SOCIETY, is an acoustic trio best known for their melodic guitar playing accompanied by stirring vocal harmonies. Most often compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, and Fleet Foxes, the group delivers an authentic sound that is organic and transcendental. Bandmates Trevor Bahnson, Ethan Glazer and Daniel Wright met while studying music theory at Berklee College of Music in Boston. They currently reside in Silverlake, CA where they have amassed a following on the indie circuit, having recently performed at House of Blues, Hotel Café, The Mint, Bootleg Bar and Silverlake Lounge. Past highlights include opening for Brett Dennen and playing to a sold out audience at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. The band is currently working on a second independent album release expected to hit later this year. For more information and to listen to Song Preservation Society’s debut EP, please visit
