From the land of endless winter, Twin Cities based Collapsing Stars have been quietly making a name for themselves throughout the American west. Blending traditional blues, roots, folk, and Americana sounds with a hint of modernity, comparisons range from Iron & Wine and the Lumineers, to the Black Keys and Ben Harper.
In the last few years they've earned producer credits on a record for Rhymesayers Entertainment (Atmosphere, Brother Ali, deM atlaS), played a showcase at the renowned Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, and in 2016 performed for over 120K people at Red Bull Crashed Ice.
Their debut record titled 2012 has received some noteworthy accolades including praise from Dan Wilson, the Semisonic frontman who has co-written songs for the Dixie Chicks, John Legend, Weezer, and Adele's 2011 hit "Someone Like You". In 2018 they were selected as an official SXSW artist out of a pool of over 8K applicants. NPR Music named them a top 100 SX artist out of 2K showcasing acts. They are currently on tour to promote 2012.
