Internationally acclaimed Zen Elephant are a Bristol based Indie/Folk quartet. Since forming in 2008 they have toured extensively in the UK and Europe.

An original take on the Folk genre steers them away from any obvious comparisons to other bands. The sound is raw, while elements of Americana, Swing and Rock are thrown in.

With performances at Glastonbury, Shambala, Secret Garden Party and many other UK festivals, Virtual Festivals described Zen Elephant as "Infectiously-vibrant, up-tempo folk", whilst MOJO gave them a thumbs up in their review of Green Man festival 2011.

Their much anticipated debut album will be released in Spring 2013
