With an intensive focus on the memorable songwriting of bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Will Bradford, coupled with the band’s trademark psychedelic touches and expert musicianship, SeepeopleS’ timeless songs are polished, tightly-composed offerings that blend intimate emotion and wide-open, politically minded themes. At times lush and candid, at others minimal and disquieting, SeepeopleS’ critically-acclaimed music chronicles with dexterity the story of a band coming of age in a world that often seems built on nonsense.
SeepeopleS has built their empire of live music fans and headphone recluses on strong independent record sales and over 600,000 miles of touring the US, including opening spots with premier acts such as Death Cab for Cutie and Presidents of the USA, and plays at top notch festivals such as Wakarusa, CMJ Music Marathon and Bele Chere. The band’s intense and accomplished multimedia touring act includes a twenty-piece light and video show, complete with a full time lighting designer and sound engineer. SeepeopleS’ recording credits include three previous albums sprinkled with eclectic guest artists such as Dave Matthews collaborator Tim Reynolds, Spearhead’s Dave Shul, ex-Morphine saxophonist Dana Colley and the late Ray Davis of Parliament Funkadelic.
On the brink of releasing their fourth album, SeepeopleS is enjoying the buzz of a truly emerging artist; with a steadily increasing live draw, consistent glowing accolades from the press and songs featured in three upcoming independent films, the band is positioned to “pop,” while avoiding flash in the pan pitfalls with an intriguing back catalogue of over 100 songs. SeepeopleS is represented by one of the largest law firms in the Southeast, and the band’s film and TV licensing is done by Northstar Media in Los Angeles, whose clients include American Idol, Honda, The Gap and more. Steady national radio play, national touring, and the band’s knack for marketing and publicity have landed SeepeopleS at the top of the “one to watch” pile in 2008.
“Apocalypse Cow Vol. II” is SeepeopleS’ fourth album, currently being recorded at Chillhouse Studios in Boston with longtime friend and producer Will Holland, who has worked with The Pixies, Fall Out Boy and Dead Can Dance. Tentatively scheduled for release in September, the album features 17 brand new SeepeopleS songs drenched in the rich instrumentation and majestic composition that characterizes this groundbreaking artist.
