Folk, Funk, Reggae, Rock
Saint Andrews, NB/Saint John, NB
At first glance, Earthbound resemble a traditional acoustic group, but these talented musicians blend elements of folk, funk, reggae and rock to create a wave of sound you’d never expect from the acoustic instruments on stage. The Galaxie Rising Star winners have earned a fiercely devoted following since the 2013 release of their EP, Lettuce Turnip The Beet, which garnered nominations for three Music New Brunswick Awards and an ECMA. Their latest offering, Ditch Flowers, exemplifies the band’s earthy sound, blending elements of folk, funk, blues and rock with soulful, intriguing lyrics. Recorded by John McLaggan at Porchlight Studios, and produced with Grant Heckman, Ditch Flowers simultaneously showcases their broad musical horizons, while maintaining a live, unscripted feel throughout. Earthbound will make their Blues Tent debut, headlining our Free Festival Kickoff. Lend them your ears, your feet and your mind, and they’ll take you on a musical journey that you won’t soon forget!
