Family Of The Year Biography

Indie Alternative-Pop outfit Family Of The Year formed in 2009 in Los Angeles, California USA, around the core of Welsh brothers Joseph Keefe on vocals + guitar and Sebastian Keefe on drums. The band, which also features guitarist James Buckey, keyboardist Christina Schroeter and original bassist Brent Freaney, issued a pair of EPs on its own Washashore Records imprint.

Their first proper full album, "Songbook", was released in February 2010. The list of artists that Family Of The Year has played with over the years is notable, including Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, who took the band on tour early in its career, Mumford & Sons, though arguably the most impressive opening gig so far was when the band warmed up a Ben Folds performance with the Boston Pops Orchestra.

The LA-based Folk-popsters then signed with Nettwerk Records and in July 2012 released their second full-length disc, "Loma Vista"; it contains the Alternative Songs top 30 hit single "Hero".
