Bishop Allen

Bishop Allen builds upon the extraordinary first years of their career with Grrr..., which Dead Oceans will release March 10, 2009. The band fronted by Justin Rice and Christian Rudder is best known for making and self-releasing an EP each month for an entire year, then reworking some of the best songs for a highly acclaimed label debut (The Broken String). The rigorous EP project, and the extensive touring that has followed it, have allowed Bishop Allen to hone their craft: writing, performing and recording music.

BISHOP ALLEN Performs Intimate Ukulele Session

They say you know a song is strong when it can be stripped down to its most simple skeleton and still stand on its own. Recently, BISHOP ALLEN proved the strength of their pop writing chops with only voice, ukulele and melodica in a teeny French bathroom for France’s Ukulele Sessions, for which they performed tunes from past albums Broken String and Charm School. The band upcoming dates at both Sasquatch Music Festival and North Side Fest. Check out all upcoming Bishop Allen dates HERE.

When BISHOP ALLEN’S Justin Rice and Christian Rudder aren’t pumping out pop gems like the band’s latest album Grrr…, the two moonlight as (modestly great) actors in some wonderful indie films.
