The Accidentals
Named among Yahoo Music's "Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017," The Accidentals'
adventure began in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, when Katie Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Savannah Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for a high school orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, band mates. Their shared influences bounced between classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, alt-rock, and the obscure.
The duo released a pair of independent albums in 2012 and 2013, the latter funded by a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. National applause and attention followed, as did acclaimed collaborations with some fellow local artists and independent filmmakers.
Their original songs reveal a band with wide-ranging influences but always true to their orchestral roots. The past five years have seen The Accidentals perform over a thousand live shows, including headline dates, festival sets, and shared stages along such diverse acts as Keller Williams, Brandi Carlile, Andrew Bird, The Wailers, Joan Baez and others.
With Odyssey, an extraordinary Sony Masterworks debut album, The Accidentals affirm their place among contemporary music's most original and adventurous new bands. Multi-instrumentalists Buist and Larson - joined on stage and in the studio by drummer Michael Dause - have crafted a genre all their own, fueled by their uniquely limitless approach to musicality and song craft.
