New Band: Bear’s Den

Andrew Davie

Andrew Davie, formerly of Cherbourg, has a new project called Bear’s Den, which I happened upon at SXSW waiting to see The Naked & Famous.  The showcase was running a little late, and man, was I happy about that, as I was able to catch an entire set from this Davie-fronted, UK-based band.

When I returned home, I scoured the blogs looking for info, and could barely find anything.  I ended up e-mailing Sheena over at The Ruckus for more info on Davie, how he had been doing the solo thing for a while and what Bear’s Den was all about…

If you didn’t already know, Andrew Davie used to front Cherbourg, which also included Kev Jones on Bass and Chris Mass on Drums, but had Phil Rena on Fiddle rather than Jack Standen on Keys. The sound was quite different, but if you like Bear’s Den, I would advise tracking down the two EPs they released.

No more info quite yet on more music from Bear’s Den or plans to visit the U.S., but they will be supporting Marcus Foster across the pond this month, and you can keep up with Communion Music on Facebook HERE for more info in the coming weeks / months.

Here’s the demo “Fickle Love” from Bear’s Den…
