THE STORY. These six friends, including two sets of siblings, have been making music together for almost 10 years. They have been writing, recording, and performing as Epic
Season since 2009; simultaneously working seasonal jobs in the tourism-dependent Mt. Washington Valley to fund their musical endeavor. The band traveled to Nashville to record an EP that debuted in 2012. An 11-track album, New Lands, was released Summer 2014.
THE SOUND. Classical piano lessons were a mutual experience which aided the self-teaching of other instruments. Over many hours of practice in attics and basements the sound and rapport developed. The songs of Epic
Season are built on a foundation of solid drums, rhythm guitar and piano, and tastefully phrased bass lines. The songs are led cooperatively by electric guitar and software synth, with added seasoning from vocal harmonies and occasional string arrangements. The lyrics, intended for more than entertainment, examine how we live and what we live for.
