Electronic Press Kit

Before the Brave emerged from a strangely quiet San Francisco music scene in 2012 with
unexpected acclaim behind their first release, a 5 song EP entitled Great Spirit. As the quintet
expanded their humble fan base with consistent local headliners, Noise Pop festival appearances, and a
series of west coast tours, a handful of lineup changes led to significant stylistic shifts in their sonic
Over the next few years the collective took a decisive step into the unknown, leaving their folkamericana roots for a larger, more ambitious alternative rock sound that draws on the likes of classics
Fleetwood Mac as well as contemporaries The Head and the Heart and The Alabama Shakes. And the
risk paid off.
The band, now composed of original members vocalist/guitarist Jason Stevens, drummer Kyle
Teese, and vocalist/keyboardist Beth Garber, along with newcomers Ryan Devisser on guitar and
Miguel Castuera on bass, displayed newly cultivated songwriting capabilities that landed 2014's single
"Free" in a handful of television placements and widespread circulation on indie music blogs. The
upcoming year marked a new season for Before the Brave, as the band entered the studio with California
producer-engineer Andy Freeman (Eisley), looking to capture their unique and substantive sound and
color on a full-length record. 
With a number of new tracks already debuted live, the band has already expectations high. Their
upcoming release, “Better Country”, the most lyrically honest, instrumentally rich, and conceptually
developed work to date, will be released independently on October 22, 2016.
On the outfit's steady progression towards their current place as a household name in the musical
landscape of San Francisco, Nic Buron of The Bay Bridged aptly observed: “In a city where it often feels
like 'too cool' rules, their genuineness is a fresh gulp of oxygen.”
