THE END OF AMERICA
“Best Discovered Act of the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival”
The End of America is a band of friends, singers and travelers who blend three-part harmony with rock and Americana, resonating with fans of Ryan Adams, CSNY and Dawes.
Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard met on tour in 2005 and went on to form a trio that highlights their vocal chemistry and captures the raw honesty of their performances. Their recently released debut LP (self-titled), follows-up their previous EPs, “Shakey” and “Steep Bay.” They have performed at SXSW, Savannah Stopover and the Baltimore Folk Fest, and have shared the stage with Larry Campbell, David Bromberg, Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers) and joined Beck in Los Angeles to perform for his Song Reader sheet music release show. Their album, “The End of America”, was named #1 Album of 2016 on WPKN’s “Music My Mother Wouldn’t Like.”
