Listen to “Old Friends”
Existing in various forms over the past several years with a rotating cast of members, songwriter Evan Stephens Hall and drummer Zack Levine are the core of Pinegrove.  The two have played music together since the age of seven, following in the footsteps of their fathers who also play in a band together.  When Hall arrived at Kenyon College in rural Ohio, he began to read and write more, thinking about how the two worked together, or as he puts it “how language is melodic and everything actually is rhythmic; that just as literature lives inside its own world, music can make an inviting, emotional, smart world with tradition and community too.”  The earliest Pinegrove songs began to take shape at this point; the band’s moniker is actually derived from a pinegrove at the edge of Kenyon’s campus where Hall would often go to write.

The band have garnered a loyal following for their idiosyncratic indie rock which demonstrates a deep interest in the twangier reaches of American rock.  Pinegrove will play select dates in the Northeast this winter with more touring plans for this spring soon to be announced.
