I don’t know much about the indie/folk band Message to Bears. With very little information available on the internet about the background and existence of this band, I have been left scratching my head for days as to what I can possibly tell you all about it…
With some research I discovered that Message to Bears is the project of instrumentalist Jerome Alexander. Composed mainly of songs that combine both classical and folk influences, Message to Bears is said to achieve “beautiful soundscapes…by interweaving accomplished acoustic guitar scales with haunting piano, heart-wrenching strings, ethereal samples and hushed vocals.”
With two full-length albums and one EP released to date, Message to Bears is quickly developing an interested fan base. Unlike anything that I have been drawn to before, the work of Jerome Alexander will leave you blissful, happy, and wanting more.
Take a listen to my favourite song “Mountains,” the track that originally drew me to Message to Bears a few weeks ago.
