$5 // ALL AGES
Their sound is very lyrical and melody driven, influenced by storyteller singer/songwriters such as Paul Baribeau and Everyone Except Me. Apes of the State takes the simplicity and straightforward, emotional writing style of these influences and combines it with the drive and power of a full acoustic band, made up of Dan Ebersole on the mandolin/guitar, Mollie Swartz on the violin, and April Hartman on the guitar/lead vocals. Their sound is under constant evolution but is deeply rooted in punk rock, folk, and bluegrass.
We are a power pop ensemble who believe in community.
