Today, rising Americana-roots-rock band Briscoe releases their third single, “Coyotes” – a harmony-filled tribute to West Texas – from their debut album West of It All, out September 15th via ATO Records. “Coyotes” follows the band’s last track “Sparrows” and first song “The Well,” both of which are reacting at radio and DSPs. “The Well” entered the Billboard charts and is currently #32 at Triple A and #25 on the Americana Singles formats, while “Sparrows” has been added to Spotify’s “Fresh Folk,” “Roots Rising” and “Acoustic Chill” playlists. Listen to “Coyotes” HERE and watch an intimate performance of “The Well” from the Cedar Creek Sessions HERE. Pre-order West of It All HERE.
Briscoe is Truett Heintzelman and Philip Lupton. They began their rise as students at the University of Texas at Austin, playing house shows and backyard parties as a two-piece act before expanding their lineup into a full band and selling out venue after venue. Briscoe began growing their base organically by constant touring and engaging with fans, which led to opening stints with Noah Kahan and Ruston Kelly, as well as dates with Zach Bryan and Caamp.
Briscoe continues a headlining tour that will find them in their hometown of Austin on release day, September 15th, as well as in NYC on September 28th and Nashville on October 11th. The band just wrapped a festival-filled summer, during which they performed alongside some of music’s biggest names at Bonnaroo, Winnetka Music Festival, FairWell Festival, Catbird Music Festival, Iron Blossom Music Festival and more. An early career highlight took place when Briscoe opened for The Dave Matthews Band over Labor Day weekend. A full list of tour dates is below and on their website HERE.
Briscoe recorded West of It All with producer Brad Cook in North Carolina, adding drummer Matt McCaughan (Bon Iver) and multi-instrumentalist Phil Cook (Megafaun, Hiss Golden Messenger). Brad Cook plays bass on the sessions as well. It’s a broad, bold mix, captured by two young musicians who’ve distilled the rush of early adulthood into 10 sharply written songs. Still in their infancy as a band, Briscoe sounds fully grown on West of It All, a self-assured album that follows no directions but its very own.
