Named one of Yahoo Music’s “Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017,” The Accidentals are among contemporary music’s most original and adventurous new bands. Multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist and Katie Larson – joined on stage and in the studio by drummer Michael Dause – have crafted a genre all their own, fusing elements of folk and pop into their signature sound. The band will release their debut album, ODYSSEY, August 18th via Sony Masterworks. It is available for pre-order now.
Since bonding during a high school orchestra event in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, The Accidentals have performed over a thousand live shows, including headline dates, festival sets, and shared stages along such like-minded acts as Martin Sexton, Brandi Carlile, Andrew Bird, The Wailers, Joan Baez and others. 2015’s SXSW debut saw them hailed by Billboard for “displaying a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops.”
Co-produced by Buist, Larson, and Dause with engineer Jason Lehning (Mat Kearney, Guster, George Jones, Alison Krauss) at Asheville, NC’s Echo Mountain Recording, ODYSSEY includes the singles, “Memorial Day” and “KW” (featuring Keller Williams). Other special guests on the album include Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) and Kaki King. The Accidentals are celebrating ODYSSEY with a wide-ranging North American tour.
