Bear Cub / Bio

We write songs. We play music. We have beards. It might get rowdy.

“Jesse Hall left the city he loves and a promising pop-punk band to follow a girl to Austin. All he got was a broken heart, a long trip back and the seed for one of the best albums to come out of Pittsburgh in 2010,”(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Most of the debut record from Bear Cub was written on that 2,000-mile car ride back home, which chronicles the singer-songwriter's ill-fated romantic venture south. Jesse’s style of writing is in a league of its own, with a copious flow of raw emotion, beautifully crafted phrasing, and incredible imagery. Digging through the dirt and grit, he discovers these true gems. Through friends of friends around Pittsburgh, the band members found each other, and an ‘aggressive folk’ formula that works masterfully. By now, the Bear Cub boys have dug their heels in Nashville and are making their voices heard loud and clear around town. They are currently working on new material and winning fans over the old fashioned way – letting the music speak for itself and putting on a phenomenal live show. Bear Cub has been touted as “a hardcore indie rock band from Tennessee”, by Black Vinyl Magazine, “because the energy that comes from these bears - between the gut-spillin' lyrics to the full force instrument handling, pretty much gives folk a new identity."
