Local 929 Artist Spotlight
In a desperate search for warmth in the Boston winter of 2010-2011, a few friends – some old, some new – came together to see what would happen when they brought all their musical tastes, talents and trinkets into the same room. What started as a jam in a Cambridge living room has led their debut album, 'Shake' and multiple tours across America. With five minds and five million ideas, the result is Friendly People – folk-infused indie rock, hand-crafted to make you feel at home.
In 2011, Friendly People performed extensively in the greater Boston area, New York, Maryland, Connecticut and Rhode Island. On the heels of the success of their debut EP, the band completed a self booked August 2012 East Coast Tour and released their full length debut, entitled 'Shake' on December 13, 2012. The record was produced, engineered, and mixed by Friendly People. Since the release of ‘Shake, the local and national blogosphere has been swift in recognizing Friendly People's success and potential.
After a month long cross country tour spanning from New York, NY to Austin, TX in early 2013, Friendly People have since begun writing their sophomore record. The group, now residing in both Brooklyn and Boston, has had a successful year of touring that has included showcases at South by Southwest in Austin and CBGB Fest and CMJ in New York City.
Friendly People is:
Pat McCusker - Vocals, guitars
Jeff Butcher - Vocals, guitars, mandolin
Mitchell Stewart - Vocals, guitars
Davis Rowan - Drums, Percussion
Colin Lee - Vocals, keys
Friendly People played Local 92.9's first Presents show at Middle East Upstairs on September 21st, 2013. To support this show, they stopped by the studio to play a few songs. Check out the videos below!
