If you have not heard of Blond Bones…you will soon.” (The Daily Beacon)
Pop/surf rock quartet Blond Bones, comprised of band leader Christian Barnett, guitarist Joey English, bassist Joe Rebrovick and drummer Daniel Ryan, is a new and exciting addition to the Nashville music community. Their songs are complex arrangements of dreamy, surfy chord progressions; danceable driving rhythms, and catchy melodies inspired by the songwriting style of Dylan, Bowie and Lou Reed, with a modern sound in the vein of bands such as Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend.
Their latest release, the Sierra EP, pulls from a multitude of styles based around each member’s unique and lengthy musical background, providing a distinctive and interesting listening experience. Barnett and Ryan studied jazz at the University of Tennessee, Rebrovick originally studied acting before focusing on music, and English released three solo folk albums under his own name.
The group began making a name for themselves in the flourishing artistic scene of nearby Knoxville, Tennessee, receiving praise from Knoxville Mercury for their “…excellent guitar-playing, and…real talent for complex arrangements” and Inside of Knoxville applauding their “dynamic range” and “solidly written songs” throughout a sound described as “reverb-filled shimmering rock.”
The band now lives in Nashville, TN and is touring the southeast in support of the "Sierra EP"
