The Social Animals are an indie rock band that features elegantly sarcastic, thoughtful lyrics and memorable melodies.

Band members don't do backflips or slide across their knees into guitar solos. Instead, they play passionately and honestly, carrying the intensity to move feet and the delicacy to keep them still. Between songs, they deliver dry commentary on the status of their lives and the world around them.

Earlier this year, the Social Animals released Early Twenties, their first full-length album. Produced with help from Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Deer Tick) and recorded almost completely live at Modest Mouse's Ice Cream Party Studios, the album builds upon the groundwork of the band's 2016 EP Formative Years.

Sam Robbins is a New England–based Americana/country singer-songwriter whose smooth, intriguing vocals evoke thoughts of artists far beyond his 21 years. Described as James Taylor meets Jason Isbell, Robbins continues to gain considerable attention as he tours New England and beyond.
