Friday in America / Bio

With a range of influences spanning from The Band to The Roots, Friday in America fuse elements of folk, rock, reggae, and hip hop. The result is a menagerie of musical styles - from the heavy rock and funk arrangements of songs like "Hitman" to the stripped-down folk of "Water". In 2011, the band released their first full length album "Cut the Brakes", and had the track "Water" featured in the closing scene of the AFI-Fest award-winning film The Hammer, which told the true story of deaf UFC fighter Matt Hamill. The album's rock and folk arrangements have garnered comparisons to artists like Jack Johnson and Bruce Springsteen, and have received regular rotation on shows like Scott Regan's "Open Tunings" (NPR). The band's love of all music and their ability to write and play across numerous mediums makes for a unique concert experience. They have opened for acts like Max Creek, Ekoostik Hookah, and the Ryan Montbleau Band, and are constantly fusing their disparate influences in a groove-oriented framework. On May 19th, 2012 the band releases their 2nd full length album "All These Ways We've Wandered".
