Briscoe is the Austin-based project of Truett Heintzelman and Philip Lupton. Formed during their time at the University of Texas, the pair released a self-titled EP and are currently working on their forthcoming debut album by Grammy-nominated producer, Brad Cook (Bon Iver, The War on Drugs, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Waxahatchee).
This year Briscoe will feature at top summer festivals including Bonnaroo, Sound on Sound, Catbird Music Festival, FairWell Festival, Iron Blossom Festival, and Wonderbus Music & Arts Festival, which adds to their previous festival appearances at Innings Fest (both Tampa and Tempe events) and Shaky Knees. The band has supported Noah Kahan, Ruston Kelly, CAAMP, and Zach Bryan on tour dates across the country.
At home, the band has recently sold out an eight-show residency at Austin's legendary venues C-Boy’s Heart & Soul and The Continental Club. Briscoe draws musical influence from what many consider the golden years of music—the late 1960s to the mid-1970s. Artists such as Neil Young, James Taylor, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Carole King, and Paul Simon have influenced the pair musically and lyrically. With a variety of instrumentation, Briscoe's live shows and studio recordings meander in and out of genres while consistently showcasing meaningful songwriting and unique melodies.
Late Night Thoughts is the folk-pop duo of Michael Harlow and Brian Rauch. Forged in the fires of overnight summer camp, they’re just a couple of silly Brooklyn boys, making music and enjoying the ups and downs of early adulthood. Their strangely symbiotic style has led to the unique blending of singer-songwriter sound with folk-pop production.
