he pine-lined walls and high-lofted beams became home to a temporary studio where front man Ben Hardesty says, "We had freedom to explore and create without the time constraints we lived under on previous projects." Out of this rustic cabin emerged a collection of music with booming organic drums and energy beyond anything on their previous work.
Having drawn comparisons in the past to indie superstars the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, and Fleet Foxes, their most recent project harvests a more dynamic, and anthemic sound from the soil of their folk roots. The addition of electric bass and keyboards to their extensive collection of acoustic instruments has been compared to Bob Dylan going electric at Newport in 1965. After a performance at Norfolk, Virginia's Harborfest, the The Daily Press commented on the new musical direction saying, "The result is a more rocking sound, though the band still remains true to its folkie roots."
Following their first independent release, Quill, in 2011, The Last Bison was signed to Universal Republic Records and created the Inheritance album in 2013. The most recent project finds The Last Bison returning to their independent roots, having self-produced the project in collaboration with Media House Music.
