Texas Lifestyle Magazine chose The Accidentals as the “band to see” at Austin City Limits, SXSW, calling them defiant, young – powerful, and undaunted.”
Female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies and FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial.
In 2019 they released a self-titled LIVE album and a single with New West Records and toured the UK. They scored an indie film, taught workshops across the country, and finished recording their much-anticipated studio album, Vessel, co-produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Ray) and Tucker Martine (Nico Case, Decemberists).
The band toured 150 dates, including backing up Keller Williams, Gabriel Kahane, and Martin Sexton on strings. They wrapped 2019 as guest artists with the TSO Orchestra on original pieces they scored and arranged.
The Accidentals ushered in 2020 at NAMM, representing Takamine, Fender, LR Baggs, SBC cases, Shure, Liquid Violins, NS design, Roland, Boss, Dream Cymbals, and D’Addario, followed by Folk Alliance International and SXSW.
They just launched a podcast titled “Bucketseat Chronicles” and a weekly YouTube series called “#playyourparagon” every Wednesday they cover female artists that have inspired them.
They released a collaborative single with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra and The Rock Hall of Fame on record store day in April, and a collection of co-writes with writers who inspire them including Dar Williams, Kim Richey, Tom Paxton, Mary Gauthier, Maia Sharp, and Jaimee Harris called TIME OUT Session 1. TIME OUT remains on the NACC, Folk, and Americana Radio charts.
Their new Vessel album drops Oct. 1st and singles. Go Getter, Slow and Steady, and Cityview (Kerrville New Folk Winner) are out now.
Pop Matters Magazine says, “you can’t define the Accidentals by comparison to any-one band”, comparing them to a mash-up of influences including, “Decemberists, Avett Brothers, Beatles, and Brandi Carlile.
NPR calls them “some of the most compelling songwriters of our time”.
They are currently touring nationally and their music can be found online, all the streaming platforms, Barnes and Noble, and live shows.
