“Seven people with their own individual talents, who when combined, create magic that is so much more than just the sum of its parts… It’s the way they come together, the way that they balance each other and feed off of each other, that makes this band so special.” – BLDG 25
Formed under the idea of “Good People. Good Music,” in April of 2013, Family And Friends is the summation of 7 people rapt in indie-folk-rock. Based out of Athens, GA, they triumph exhilarating and heart-pumping live shows with two drummers that are standing at almost all times, deeply layered instrumentation, and vocal harmonies that push their songs closer to home.
As these things so often do, Family And Friends began as a lowly seedling of inspiration. “Good music, good people.” A stalk gave yield to branches. One became six, a collective of musicians by trade, lovers by spirit. Inspired by a life worth living, the Fam and Pals remained rooted with three ambitions in heart, mind, and soul: the people, the music, the memories. The reflection represented by blend of earnest folk rock and a communal spirit pouring a collective heart into something bigger than itself. An intangible force of an unfaltering love worth giving away. A Family And Friend tree ever-growing, ever-lasting.
