BandFolkRock

The Light Brigade emerged from Los Angeles's mythical Laurel Canyon in the summer of 2010. Inspired by the canyon's classic sounds, Brigade founders Tim Mosher and Stoker sought to capture that universally understood groove, interpreted through their singular writing style. Acoustic guitars, narrative songwriting, and simple, to-the-point style: this everything-old-is-new-again sound makes the Light Brigade's newest songs feel like old friends from the first listen.
