ELIZA & THE BEAR
Eliza And The Bear’s upbeat, indie folk music pulled together the romping folk-pop of Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, while the layered instrumentation took inspiration from the likes of Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene.
They released their song “Brother’s Boat” digitally before their first single, “Upon the North,” appeared in 2013. Later that year they were invited to open for Paramore on their U.K. tour, where they played at a sold-out Wembley Arena.
