The Acoustic Café Music Series welcomes The End of America for the first show of the fall season, celebrating the release of their new self - titled CD, with a showcase evening of new songs! Special guest Kirsten Maxwell will open the show.
The End of America is not some grand political statement. It is a band of friends, singers, and travelers. Blending three part harmony with rock and americana, the Philadelphia based trio achieves a style that resonates with fans of Ryan Adams as well as Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young. Since their inception in 2010, The End of America has recorded and released two EPs and a single, performed at festivals including SXSW, Savannah Stopover, Baltimore Folk Fest, and has performed with the likes of Beck, Anthony Green & Gary Louris of The Jayhawks. Brendon Thomas, James Downes, and Trevor Leonard met on tour years prior. All frontmen of previous bands, they formed a trio that would highlight their unique ability to harmonize.
In February 2013, The End of America was invited to perform at Beck's "Song Reader" sheet music album release show in Los Angeles. Beck discovered TEOA by way of a Youtube video performing one of his new songs, and flew them out the following week. The band's performance received applause from Spin Magazine, Filter, and Hollywood Reporter.
Kirsten Maxwell is a 23 year-old vocalist, guitarist and songwriter, who has quickly become a recognized fixture on the Long Island singer-songwriter scene. She’s the winner of the 2016 South Florida Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter Competition, is a 2016 Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and recently released her debut CD, Crimson. Kirsten’s stunningly pure voice has drawn comparisons to the likes of Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell and is evocative of the 1960s folk scene.
