Indie folk sensations from Portland
Blind Pilot has performed on Ellen and The Late Show, and at the Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza. The group has shared stages with The Shins, Local Natives, Andrew Bird, and more. The project began in 2007 when frontman Israel Nebeker and co-founding member Ryan Dobrowski went on a West Coast tour via bicycle. They come to Michigan with an exciting new release, "And Then Like Lions," of which Israel says, "This album came from love for my family, my town, my friends, my community. We don't have to be so afraid of loss. We can speak and share its name, knowing we are together in it. If these songs are invitations to talk about loss and death, the invitation is to talk closely of the courage we find when we face loss honestly, cracked open and unsure of what we will become." The Massachusetts duo Tall Heights opens.
