More about the bands
The acoustic (for the time being) trio, BareLand, is a well-travelled group of musicians, pulling from both Bemidji, MN and Hamar, Norway. After a year of making music in Trondheim, the trio is exploring Minnesota on an acoustic mini-tour. They will be performing original music inspired by the groups various backgrounds and experiences in both the real world and the music world (though, these worlds seem to blend in the eyes of the three musicians). Their music may resemble that of Vance Joy, Ben Howard, and The Lumineers in that they promise expression through poetic lyrics, thick harmonies, and acoustic reverb, but still presenting music that stands on it’s own.
New to the Minneapolis scene, the groups first EP will be released online this summer.
