Their debut album, Rain and Laura, released in April of 2016 to enthusiastic reviews, proving them an emerging voice in the independent music scene
Fellowcraft: Brian and JR met in Federal Lodge #1, the oldest Masonic Lodge in the District of Columbia. They both had experience in live music, and became fast friends. In 2014, after a string of significant life events, JR was itching to start a band. A simple jam in JR’s apartment led to a rooftop show, which led to more shows at numerous venues around DC. The momentum continued with the addition of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profiles; a slew of YouTube videos, and soon after a full website.
In March 2015, they released two of their tracks, “The Singles”, to rave reviews. Shortly after, Brandon joined as the band’s bassist, which has catapulted the band to new heights. The trio released their album, Get Up Young Phoenix, their first full length LP, in January of 2016 to iTunes/Spotify/Amazon/Google Play and more. The band has been featured on national broadcasts, radio, newspaper, numerous independent blogs, websites, and national podcasts (Links available on the Reviews and News pages).
Fellowcraft is the creative outlet that allows these guys the expressive and musical authenticity they desire. They want to tell their story, whatever it may be at the time, in a wholly authentic and no nonsense way.
These misfits love playing live shows and making music, whenever and wherever they can. It’s energy – it’s revelry – it’s volume.
