This has led the four boys to submerge their different styles into one party they celebrate as Animal Party. -Enjoy
Acacia originated in Orange County, California in the winter of 2003. Founding members Craig MacArthur and Ryan McCaffrey began writing and playing music that focuses on ethereal vocal harmonies and soulful guitar interplay that has been described as California-Indie-Soul.
Inspired by the artistic energy of the Bay Area, the duo relocated to San Francisco in 2004. Over the next several years The Acacia Collective grew, incorporating many talented Bay Area musicians. Most notably, they collaborated with bassist, songwriter, producer and Bay Area legend, Bobby Vega. With Vega and guitarist Chris Rossbach producing and Prairie Prince on drums, Acacia released their debut EP, "House of Cards" in the spring of 2009.
Acacia then spent the foggy summer of 2009 songwriting on the Slope in San Francisco's Sunset district. Together with new rhythm section Sean Nelson (drums) and Wes Hill (bass), they began recording that September and released their follow-up EP "The Tide" in July 2010.
With the momentum of this release and recent performances opening for Alberta Cross and The Mother Hips, as well as new additions Eric DiBerardino (bass) and Danny Eisenberg (keys), Acacia Collective is poised to deliver its passion for musical expression to the masses.
Acacia is currently in the studio recording their debut LP with Mother Hips frontman, Tim Bluhm, producing. Also co-producing is David Simon-Baker of ALO, Los Lobos, Jackie Greene, and Mother Hips fame.
Blisses B, rooted firmly in the city that embraces music in all forms imaginable, introduces another compilation of genre-crashing rock and psychedelia with their second fulllength album, Thirty Days, Sixty Years. Debuted on Nov. 9, 2010, the album was recorded, produced, and engineered entirely by the San Francisco-based quartet.
