Formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York, the Slambovians are pioneers of the alt-folk/Americana genre and paved the way for DIY before it was fashionable, turning down major label deals all along the way.
The NY TIMES says of the Slambovians, “Their songs are imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism… they take the stage by storm!”
The Slambovian’s most recent album, BOX OF EVERYTHING from 2014 is also known as “the greatest Slambovian hits you’ve never heard.”
Fiercely independent, they present both quirky Americana and Zen-like anthems in a universe entirely of their own making. Likened to an array of artists including the Waterboys, Jethro Tull, The Decemberists, a quirkier Tom Petty with an exotic instrumental arsenal, their “dusty Americana ballads” evoke Dylan, Cracker, or the Wallflowers.
