The band has received many accolades since including winning the Americana category in the 2010 Boston Music Awards and being hailed as one of the top ten acts of the 2011 South by Southwest festival. David Wax and Suz Slezak, the band’s core members, met while he was attending Harvard and she Wellesley. After spending summers working with Quakers in rural Mexico, David spent a graduate fellowship met in Boston in 2007. Suz is well-versed in Appalachian and Irish fiddle music and sometimes plays the quijada, a percussion instrument made from the jawbone of an ass. The band primarily funds their albums by touring supplemented by a PledgeMusic campaign which offers fans exclusive prizes and early access to new music in return for donations. Their fourth album Knock Knock Get Up, released in September 2012, has matured with a vibrant and eclectic mix of Americana, bluegrass and Latin influences.
