With exquisite three-part harmonies reminiscent of Crosby, Stills and Nash’s debut 50 years ago, Philadelphia-based trio The End of America will bring their original songcraft to Phoenicia’s Flying Cat Music venue, the United Methodist Church (29 Church St.) on Saturday, July 20 at 7:30 pm.
The singer-songwriter-instrumentalists James Downes, Trevor Leonard, and Brendon Thomas also will be accompanied by a bassist and drummer. They will be celebrating the July 19 release of their thought-provoking new single, “Monster.”
Over the past nine years, The End of America – named after a line from Jack Kerouac’s On the Road – have wowed audiences as they’ve traveled the country performing compelling originals like “Empty Sea” and “Running” and such beloved covers as Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” and the Band’s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” Along the way, their Americana blend of folk and rock has won such accolades as “Most Wanted Band” at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2018 after winning the Emerging Artist Showcase there the previous year. When the band made their debut at the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival, they were voted “Favorite New Artist” of the festival. Influential
Philadelphia station WXPN has noted their “soul-striking harmonies and folk-rock melodies,” and they have performed on NPR’s prestigious
“Tiny Desk Concert” series. With their lively onstage repartee and spine-tingling harmonies, The End of America’s performance within the wood-and-stained-glass environs of Flying Cat Music’s unique venue will result in a night not to be forgotten.
