// B A N D B I O //

A man and his dog. They go for a hike. Holy Smokes! It’s a bear!!!!

Cedarwell’s Erik Neave well embodies his northern heritage. Sheboygan, Wisconsin, should be proud of such a wonderfully full beard, such tough flannel shirts and darkly twisted, acoustic-pop songs that seem to ride nature’s very rhythm. Crisp clarity and addicting genuineness hibernate Neave’s voice somewhere in the back of your memory, somewhere where it can stay for a long, long time, constantly reminding you that this is Wisconsin, and winter never really ends.

One thought on “// B A N D B I O //

  1. As one Wisconsin guy to others, I just wanted you to know that I enjoy your work. Holy Heart is, simply, one of best songs I’ve heard since discovering it a couple of years ago. Brilliant!

    If you aren’t aware of another WI guy (well, he’s from Duluth, but I met him while he was in college in Madison) I wanted to note Mike Behrends: http://www.mikebehrends.com/lyrics.html

    I hope all of your guys get the run that Bon Iver has received. Your work merits it.
