Biography

Formed in 2007 after a brief existential crisis of frontman Alex Ebert, this 11-piece ensemble is a tight-knit, music-making indie band reminiscent of musical communes of the 60s. “The absolute best place to take in the band’s gloriously uplifting ruckus is on the concert stage, where the music takes on the celebratory and intense air of a revival show. When singers Edward Sharpe (a.k.a. Alex Ebert) and Jade Castrinos lock eyes and sing to each other, it conjures images of Johnny and June, if Johnny Cash were a towering figure with dreadlocks and no undershirt” (NPR).
