Simpleton & Cityfolk

Hey everyone! Just stopping by to introduce you to another incredible indie band, Chicago based Simpleton & Cityfolk! 

Steeped in Americana with just the right mixture of folk and rock thrown in, Simpleton & Cityfolk are made up of Geoff Glenn, lead vocals/rhythm guitar; Chris Bennett, lead guitar/backing vocals; Chris Williams, upright bass/backing vocals; Mike Skowronski, drums/backing vocals. The band formed just a few years ago but have already made their mark in and around the greater Chicago area as one of the best up-and-coming bands.

This past summer saw the release of their debut EP, The Williams Account. I couldn't wait for this to come out and needless to say, 3 months later, the new still hasn't worn off of the sound for me! The band has also just released a video for their song "Porch Light" off of the same EP:

Take a few minutes of your day to discover this amazing band. They have one of the freshest sounds around today. Not too country, not too rock, just a perfect combination that kinda takes you back somewhat to the mellow side of the 70's... probably before the time of any of the band members, but I remember them well!
