Busman’s Holiday is a two person band blending the melodic charm of lo-fi acoustics with the ecstatic showmanship of classic rock ‘n’ roll. The singer/songwriter duo are occasionally accompanied by a string section who fill out their complexly euphonic ballads of love, loss, lust and outer space. Born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana, the pair has toured the U.S. and Canada extensively the past four years, appearing on Daytrotter and If You Make It’s Pink Couch Sessions.
Though adept in a D.I.Y. aesthetic of acoustic busking with only a guitar and a suitcase drum set, the brothers are equally at home on stage playing their unique songs of wanderlust and first love. Evoking a classic tent-show rock sound joined with the affable atmosphere of the assured vaudevillian, Busman’s Holiday both charms and impresses with their own unique blend of humor and assured musical talent.
