The End of America
The End of America is a band of friends who met on the road and found a kindred spirit in one another. The Philadelphia/NYC trio credit their name to Kerouac's On The Road -- relating to travelling "across the groaning continent" in search of inspiration. The sound is centered on their voices, weaving 3 distinct leads into captivating harmonies over a solid foundation of folk, rock, and americana. Fans often draw comparison to CSNY, The Avett Brothers and Dawes. James Downes, Trevor Leonard and Brendon Thomas were all frontmen of other projects. In 2010 they joined forces to record their live debut EP, Steep Bay. Since then they have released two EPs and one LP, writing songs that are rich with "soul-striking harmonies and folk-rock melodies." -WXPN, The Key The band made their debut at the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival and were voted "Favorite New Artist" of the festival. That same year, Bernie Sanders licensed TEOA's song Empty Sea for use in one of his campaign videos during his Presidential bid. In 2017 the band won the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge Folk Fest, returning in 2018 to perform as FRFF's "Most Wanted" band.
