There's a new musical monster on the horizon ready to jump out of your stereo speakers with a brand new sound this year. In fact, with the upcoming release of their debut album "Hide and Go Seek," 2008 might just turn out to be the year of Elephantbear, a group of ultra-talented young rockers from upstate New York. The band, fronted by the promising young songwriter and guitarist Mike Pedersen, has already won comparisons to artists like Snow Patrol, Ben Lee, and the Foo Fighters because of their smartly written, deftly executed, and highly original brand of rock. Sharing the songwriting duties with Pedersen are his longtime friend and collaborator, the multi-talented musician extraordinaire Tim Collins and bassist George Facteau.

Collins, who plays drums for Elephantbear, grew up playing and writing music with Pedersen in their hometown of Plattsburgh, N.Y. and is also a noted jazz vibraphonist. The band members draw on their own diverse individual influences to create a pop-rock sound that seamlessly incorporates elements of funk, punk, classic rock, jam rock, and jazz into one unique and vibrant groove. We're pretty sure this band is on their way to the big time! Now's your chance to check them out before everybody else is in on the secret! Their smart and original compositions, coupled with the band's skillful musicianship and carefully orchestrated pop arrangements, make for really complete pop-rock tunes that easily outdo anything you'll catch on the airwaves or MTV these days." -- JPMC Music Inc.

(BMI) “I gave (the cd) quick run through, which turned out to be not so quick as I listened to songs longer than I usually do when auditioning CD's. I was very impressed by the musicianship on the CD and the songs themselves…that’s the problem with most of the CD's I sample.....the songs just aren't good. Not so with ElephantBear....its also obvious that (ElephantBear) have worked on songs together for a while.” –- Jimmy Fink, 107.1 The Peak, WXPK-FM, writer and producer of “Rolling Stone Magazine’s Continuous History of Rock & Roll” “Funky and catchy as hell” –- Josh Waldman, Seven Days Read more on Last.fm.
