The Last Bison released their first album, Quill, in 2011, garnering much praise from critics. Lead vocalist and guitarist Ben Hardesty is the group’s primary songwriter, and his style bears a strong resemblance to bands such as Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, and Fleet Foxes. However, none of those three bands have a front man sharing the stage with his sister, nor is a 75-year-old pump organ in their collections of instruments.
The Last Bison finished recording for their newest album this past July, with the hopes of having its release in early 2013. In addition, the band released its EP, Inheritance, this past October.
This session originally aired January 8, 2013.
