WXPN has partnered with FIG Magazine to introduce the best new artists from the Central PA area with a new series called FIG Voices.

First up is the indie-pop band from Lancaster, Tigers and Thieves. Their new EP, You Can’t Have Everything, evokes Keane, Peter, Bjorn & John and Coldplay, and is out now.

From FIG:

Andrew Benner (vocals, piano and guitar) started writing songs in middle school, a good 10 years ago. Nate Longnecker (synthesizer) went to the same school and over time they would continue to see each other at church. A serious interest in music became a solid bond. Straight out of high school they were playing in a band with former classmates. Although this didn’t pan out, their pilot light continued to burn.

The last few years have been all about fine tuning their skills and sound so they can deliver their goal of catchy, widely-acceptable and timeless music. Andrew began taking guitar lessons from Don Peris (The Innocence Mission) which led to Don mixing two of the songs on the EP. The band has grown to include Dwight Sensenig (drums), Levi Schlosser (guitar) and Bobby Bradley (bass).
