Female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals, (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies, FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BAND van #tourtoughcommercial. The Accidentals followed the Odyssey release with a self-titled LIVE album and toured the UK; all while scoring an indie film, teaching workshops across the country, playing with symphonies, and recording their soon to be released, Vessel album, with bucket-list producers, John Congleton and Tucker Martine. In the absence of touring this last year, Sav and Katie started cowriting with some of their songwriting heroes over Zoom, (Beth Neilsen Chapman, Dar Williams, Kim Richey, Gretchen Peters, Maia Sharp, Mary Gauthier, etc.) and decided to record the just released, Time Out EP in their makeshift attic studio.
says, “The Accidentals display a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops.” Pop Matters Magazine
says, “you can’t define The Accidentals by comparison to any one band”, comparing them to a mash up of influences including, “Decemberists, Avett Brothers, Beatles, and Brandi Carlile”. NPR
calls them “some of the most compelling songwriters of our time”. They are currently touring nationally and their music can be found online, all of the streaming platforms, Barnes and Noble, and at their shows.
