Our Hometown Return: The Ark on April 19!

We arrived back home from tour yesterday around 7 AM! It was an easy trip back from Cincinnati, our last stop on the road. We had a wonderful time and are eager for our next adventure. Thank you so much to everyone who came to join us at a show! We'll be out west again this summer, and we can't wait. 

Before we leave again, though, we are ecstatic to be returning to one of our favorite places in the country: The Ark. We'll be performing on SATURDAY APRIL 19 and sharing the stage with our handsome and talented friends Bennett (Grand Rapids, MI).

We'll also be recording a live album and capturing video footage! So this is your chance to be part of the magic--you, too, can be immortalized on tape with us. It's going to be an incredible night and we can't wait to share new music and stories with you.

Join us on Facebook and tell your friends you're going: https://www.facebook.com/events/649570308412676/

It's Official...

We are proud to announce that we are now officially part of the Prater Day roster! We are so excited to work with Virginia and her team. Their passion is inspiring and immediately drew us in. You'll be sure to see some changes in our tour schedule with Virginia at the wheel, and we'll be bringing even more new music to the table. This is just the first of many exciting happenings for The Appleseed Collective this year. Stay tuned! 


The Ann Arbor Folk Festival



What an incredible weekend. We spent Friday night opening The 37th Ann Arbor Folk Festival, alongside Iron & Wine, Pearl & The Beard, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, and more. The sound of 3500 people clapping is something we could certainly get used to. It was amazing to share a stage with all of those talented and kind folks. We're looking forward to seeing Seth Walker when we get to New Orleans on our upcoming tour, and hope to visit Pigpen Theatre Co. in New York some day. 

We made so many new friends, with whom we shared laughs and tender moments as we all reveled in the glory of music. We watched our friends The Crane Wives let loose their folky power and joined Patty Griffin on Saturday night with the rest of the evening's artists for a singalong version of "On Top of Old Smokey." All in all, it was a fairly life-changing experience..one we'll certainly cherish for years to come. So here's to friends, music, and more shows like that! Thank you so much, Ann Arbor. We love you.

Come join us once we return from tour on APRIL 19 at The Ark! Until then...

Beats Per Minute Review

 Check out the Beats Per Minute review of the first single from our new album Young Love  (January 21, 2014). 

"For our first glimpse of Young Love, the band has chosen to lead with “The Inability To Feel,” which carefully unspools threads of banjo and acoustic guitar to create beautifully skeletal melodies that wind themselves around singer Andrew Brown’s whiskey-soaked vocals.  The song feels drenched in the lore of dark southern nights and desperate ends."
