Billboard’s Breakout Band at SXSW 2015, Huffington Post’s Sweet Sixteen of 2016, and Yahoo Music’s Top Ten Bands to Watch 2017..
Described by John Sinkevics of Local Spins as “genre-melding indie-folk,” The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) exhibit “a musical and lyrical sophistication that outstrips most mainstream bands.”
From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.
After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats that include Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Sollee, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, and Joan Baez.
In 2015, they scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux, and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble, while touring the US extensively.
In June of 2016, they released a brand new, self-produced EP called Parking Lot, of which the single, “Michigan and Again,” went viral.
They’ve kicked off 2017 as major label artists, having signed a record deal with Sony Masterworks to release a full-length album in August.
Yahoo called it first – this is the band to watch.

The ethereal sound of Jake Allen’s music attaches to your heartbeat and reverberates through your veins with the warmth of a long-lost embrace.
He moves around the acoustic guitar like he’s been holding it for a lifetime, gliding from end to end and producing sounds that you’d normally expect from a full band. Although most audiences are introduced to Jake Allen through the spectacle of his solo acoustic performances, the scope of Allen’s artistry runs much much deeper.
As Jake continues to write, produce albums and perform, his mission statement remains the same. “I observe, report and affirm my life through the act of making music. In turn I wish that act will enrich the lives of others and inspire them to be their own definition of great.”
