Among The Acres

 

Merging elements of Folk, Rock, Pop, and Americana,  Among the Acres delivers an eclectic yet singular sound, marked by cascading four-part vocal harmonies, dynamic grooves, and a keen sense for lyricism. Cutting their teeth by playing everywhere from breweries and small clubs to festivals and showcases throughout the Northeast, the “Acres” have been honing their powerhouse of a live set non-stop since the band’s inception in 2017.

Erik, Sean, Greg, and Michael came together while all working on separate projects with common producer, Patrick Giguere. Their mutual admiration for each other’s craft quickly elevated the band beyond the typical assemblage of players and into a brotherhood, defined by collaborative songwriting and a unified blend of voices. Soon after forming, the band garnered local acclaim, being voted “Best New Band 2018 ” by readers of Hartford Courant and being asked to record their debut album at CT’s own Telefunken Soundstage.

“Looking In” marks the first recorded release for the band and has received critical acclaim from various indie blogs, music curators, and listeners alike.  Among the Acres is currently on tour throughout the Northeast to bring their original music to new audiences.

Reviews for “Looking In” Album

Chamber folk, indie folk, blues, alt-country, and roots rock all make appearances on this record, masterfully woven together to create a sonic tapestry that is both engaging and soothing. There’s a folksy, down-home sort of vibe that is pervasive throughout the album, a sort of sonic connection to the natural world around us and the mystery that it holds. Day and Lemkey trade off on lead vocals throughout the record and nothing is lost in the transitions while they seamlessly float in and out of various sonic waters.
— Chip McCabe
Among The Acres aren’t your typical New England folk band, they boast an impressive pop/rock magnetism that sets them apart from the flock...and solidifies the group’s place among folk-rock bands of the moment such as The Lumineers.
— Deli Magazine
 

Among the Acres brings dynamic folk-rock with lush vocal harmonies to their performance at “The Valley Advocate Sessions,” Northhampton MA.

Reviews for “Falling”

With harmonies hitting all cylinder of emotions, this maiden single from the gang breaks open the hardest of icy hearts. It melts your senses to find love again, where ever it might be.
— Come Here Floyd
A beautiful hook, and a wonderful production sense, elevate this personal search for meaning into a collective indie-rock revelation. Life’s path towards purpose rarely runs in a straight line.
— Chillfiltr
