Five childhood friends from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, augmented by 3 mid-western transplants, The Mowgli's are a quintessential California band. Inspired by the magnetism of San Francisco, the grind of Los Angeles and the serenity of the Big Sur Coast, their songs are a joyous revival of rock n' roll, a twisting indie-folk dance and a heartfelt protest ballad.
Sliding from indie pop to country and a host of genres in between, the band evokes modern artists such as Fun., Grouplove and Edward Sharpe And the Magnetic Zeros, whilst having their roots in the music of Neil Young, The Byrds, The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac.
Part 60's Laurel Canyon, part 70's Venice Beach and part 10's Silverlake, the band and the harmonies are held together by their message of universal love, peace and the belief that the highest form of consciousness is achieved by togetherness and unity.
Uplifting, collaborative, joyous and communal, their music is a walk through their life thus far: Meeting each other and experiencing together ("San Francisco", "The Great Divide "), emerging stronger ("Carry Your Will") - their message is finding a foothold with fans from every walk of life, bringing people together under one roof to celebrate each other.
Brooklyn’s American Authors – Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums) will initiate a spring awakening of their own on May 13th with the release of WHAT WE LIVE FOR, their new album on Dirty Canvas/ Island Records, featuring the brand new single “Pride,” which was a most added track at Hot AC radio last week.
American Authors new video for “Pride” is already accumulating buzz. The video features young actress Sandra Mae Frank from Deaf West Theater, the company that made Broadway history with its innovative production of the 8-time Tony Award-winning and national sold out tour - Spring Awakening.
WHAT WE LIVE FOR is the long-awaited follow-up to Oh, What A Life, American Authors’ RIAA certified Gold debut album of 2014, which rose to #3 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart and #15 on Soundscan. In addition to “Best Day Of My Life,” a #1 Hot AC and Top 5 Pop hit, the album also spun off “Believer,” another Top 15 at Hot AC.
American Authors’ career-defining RIAA triple-platinum #1 hit “Best Day Of My Life” continues to resonate across the Top 40 nearly three years after its release. A sync favorite as confirmed by Billboard, “Best Day Of My Life” was “bolstered by prominent placements in a Lowe’s TV ad, a trailer for the film Delivery Man, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, a Major League Baseball Fan Cave commercial, the opening sequence of this year’s ESPN World Series Of Poker coverage, and can be heard currently in the new Weight Watchers campaign. With nearly 300 million streams to date, “Best Day Of My Life” boasts over 89 million YouTube views, 40 million of those since last summer alone.
American Authors have appeared on CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, NBC’s The Tonight Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers, NBC Universal’s Ellen, ABC’sGood Morning America, FOX 5’s Good Day New York, VH1 Morning Buzz Live, the CW’s The Carrie Diaries, TBS’s Conan, the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, and Live with Kelly and Michael. The band has also headlined the Honda Civic Tour, and toured as support for One Republic.
The band will make their first performances of 2016 at intimate club's across the nation beginning on March 28th at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco and ending at the Magic Bag in Detroit on May 15th. In between, they will be making a return appearance on NBC Universal’s Ellen on March 7th.
