Progressive Jam / Improvisational Rock

Founded in 2009 by drummer Jake Huffman and bassist Jason Ott, McLovins launched with a note for note cover of Phish’s Y.E.M that went viral, rocketing the band into overnight notoriety two weeks into its inception. The band capitalized on their newfound and patchouli tinged fame by performing at festivals all over New England, and impressing audiences with their boundless technique; their wunderkind guitarist Jeff Howard still in middle school, but playing like a seasoned professional many times his age. In the summer of 2015, the band recorded the self-titled “McLovins” (known by fans as “The Red Album”) in New York City’s East Village. The album represents a culmination of the band’s collective musical journey, produced by Sherman, who set the bar for all further creative output with a field-tested sensibility and emphasis on clarity in songwriting; focusing on accessibility without sacrificing the undeniable musicianship of the group. Sherman’s influence continues to be seen in a series of singles being released by the band culminating in the “People Say” EP set for release in January 2018. Songs like “Great Escape”, “Anxious”, and “One More”tells the story of a young band seeking to find its voice in and an erratic and uncertain world, guided by lessons from the road and knowledge passed down from musical forbearers.
