The Band Concord has spent their entire lives saturated in sound. Growing up mesmerized by the strum of a guitar, the beat of a drum, the playing of a piano - they all know that it would stay with them forever.
It wasn't until the Fall of 2012, when lead Spencer Pugh (Vocals/Guitar) and Andrew Steger(Mandolin/Banjo) met that the group began to form. Based in Blacksburg, Virginia, the duo transitioned from dorm room rehearsals to opening for The Maine to being featured on The Avett Brothers' Facebook page and quickly found their footing in the music industry.
The additions of Jason Agola (Violin), Braden Burns (Drums), and Alex Winemiller (Bass), rounded out and solidified the group’s folk sound. Hailing from all across Virginia, together this five-piece group makes The Band Concord.
Over the past few years, The Band Concord has performed non-stop along the East Coast, from restaurants and breweries to pavilions and festivals. In August 2014, the band performed at American Music Festival in Virginia Beach, featuring artists Train, Hunter Hayes, Rusted Root and more.
Known for their love and playing of all things folk, The Band Concord shares a similar sound to that of The Head and the Heart and Fleet Foxes. Yet the group has expanded their musical palette even further with the release of their debut album, “Youth,” in April 2014 – introducing a twist to their traditional folk style with an emphasized pop sound in the single “Golden Road.”
The band has recently developed a partnership with Nashville's Dave Brainard, Grammy nominated producer ("12 Stories" by Brandy Clark) and co-founder of Decibel Nashville. The Band Concord has also entered into a new management agreement with Crewser Entertainment and Promotions.
