Details: 94.9 The River Concert For Cause featuring Blind Pilot at Knitting Factory Concert House - Boise
"…the same distinctly Pacific Northwest mellow of regional progenitors like
Death Cab For Cutie and Elliott Smith." — The Onion
"…a bright and simple quality that's undeniably captivating." —WXPN's "World Café"
"Soaring, solid genius…their success is all but guaranteed." —Seattle Weekly
We Are The Tide, the sophomore album from Portland-based band Blind Pilot, will be
released September 13. The album follows the band's grassroots debut, 3 Rounds and a
Sound, which has garnered them critical attention on NPR, which included them in their
"Best Music of 2008" roundup, stating, "a roots-pop duo which bathes its terrific songs in
ingratiating harmonies and understated instrumentation. The result…is endlessly engaging:
There's not a dud on 3 Rounds and a Sound, and a ludicrous abundance of replay-worthy
ringers." Moreover, the album also received praise from USA Today, the Boston Globe, the
New York Post and the Philadelphia Inquirer, which called the music "…a rustic reverie."
Blind Pilot began in 2007 when Israel Nebeker (vocals, guitar) and Ryan Dobrowski (drums)
embarked on a West Coast bicycle tour playing mostly to unfamiliar listeners at small-town
venues. The band now exists as a 6-piece ensemble featuring fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie
(upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist
(vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet). In the years since it's inception, the
band has toured with various world-renowned musicians and have appeared at the Sasquatch!
Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and the Outside Lands Music & Arts
