Brave Little Howl is from the DFW area in North Texas. The band was formed initially by Marc Atkinson and Billy Hale in 2015 in an apartment with two acoustic guitars.
Marc Atkinson guitar; Billy Hale vocals & guitar; Josh Miller keys & bgvs; Cory Phifer drums; Clay Friddle guitar, xylophone, percussion & bgvs; Kenny Comerford bass
Their first recording Make Your Heart Sweat EP was recorded in 2016 in Nashville with Buckley Miller and Michael John Scheuchzer, and released the following year. Over the next couple years the band found their sound: a kind of Wilco-meets-Indie-Rock-meets-the-Eagles sound.
Our Lives Aren't Movies, the band's first full-length album, was the result of finding and exploring that sound. The Album was recorded at Redwood Studio in Denton, TX over several sessions from Sept. 2017 through Feb. 2018. The producer was McKenzie Smith from the band Midlake, who has also worked with artists like St. Vincent and Sarah Jaffe. Joey McClellan, also of the band Midlake, was the engineer.
