Bio

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.”

 

Heavier on the bass and drums, the song is “a little bit different than the folk style, which is what we wanted,” Steger said. “We wanted to show that we’re not just a simple folk band.”    

 

As far as new material, the Band Concord is currently writing their next EP to be released this Fall with a more acoustic focus as the band continues to advance their sound. The Band Concord is currently in the process of booking an East Coast tour for the Summer of 2015 and are looking forward to whatever comes next.
