The Historic Fox Theatre in downtown Springfield hosts the most emotionally compelling songwriters of our time, The Accidentals. The Traverse City, Michigan, trio is female-fronted multi-instrumentalists. The music is dynamic and intelligent. It's a blend of Neko Case lyrics, Jack White rock, and Queen influence all over the place. It's edgy, indie pop rock.
Yahoo’s “Band To Watch” in 2017 hasn’t slowed. The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 as major label artists, having released their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. The band premiered the video to its single "Heavy Flag" on Billboard in November with the follow up to Odyssey planned for 2019.
"The Accidentals display a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops." -BILLBOARD
"Already known for their high-energy live show and a willingness to connect with fans through personal tunes, plugged-in social media awareness and an intriguing backstory, The Accidentals are going places." -HUFFINGTON POST
"They display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression." -NPR FIRST LISTEN
