The Wandering Bears
December 18th, 2011 by hachaduryan



Location: Iowa City, Iowa

Genre: Indie, Indie – Rock



The Wandering Bears project began in 2009 when singer/guitarist Mannix!, pianist David Earl [Caroline Smith and The Goodnight Sleeps], and bassist Mitch F began collaboration on a collection of musical scraps and pieces. They were joined by singer Samantha Blickhan, singer/guitarist Drew F, and drummer Paul K [The Diplomats of Solid Sound] to complete a project heavily based on collaboration.

Through the course of self-releasing a DIY album, a few East Coast tours and a jaunt through the West, The Wandering Bears have developed a healthy regional enthusiasm towards their recorded music and happiness-infused, musically-intricate live-show.

Recently, The Wandering Bears project, in collaboration with Plastic Horse Records, recently created and released the album “Michael Cougar May..” named for the famed nudist-revolutionist. The ten-track album is full of electro-folk, pop rock and roll songs. The Little Village wrote “Michael Cougar May…captures the positive energy and snarky outlook of Iowa City’s The Wandering Bears, and is a must-have album for lovers of indie-pop and local music.” [Gavin, Tim. Little Village, 21 Sept. 2011. Web. 18 April 2009.] The release was recorded and produced by project member and practicing wizard, David Earl.

While singer Samantha Blickhan currently works away on a Masters of Musicology Degree at Oxford University in England, the Bears have begun work on a covers project, recreating and recording modern R&B/Soul/Rock compositions.
