About Akron/Family

Akron/Family is a folk-influenced experimental rock band that formed in 2002, and is currently based in New York.

Though each member of the band -- Miles Seaton, Seth Olinsky, Dana Janssen can be relegated to loosely defined roles (drummer, guitarist, bassist, vocalist), all of them in fact play several instruments and sing, as evidenced by their shows and recorded material: Live, the band uses improvisation and vocal harmonies in prominence. On their self-titled debut record, field recordings of a creaking chair, thunderclaps and the white noise of a television find their way alongside psychedelic and electronic elements, guitars and a glockenspiel.

In addition to their solo debut in 2005, the band played behind Michael Gira on his Angels of Light project as well as splitting a full length CD with Angels of Light.

In 2006, the band released an EP, "Meek Warrior," a collaboration with master drummer/hero Hamid Drake which contained both more traditional folk music and a pair of throbbing electric guitar monsters in "The Rider (Dolphin Song)" and the epic "Blessing Force," which ends with an exploration into free jazz.

Sometime between the completion of [2007 release] Love Is Simple and Akron/Family's 2007 U.S. tour, Vanderhoof left Akron/Family to live in a Buddhist Dharma center in the Midwest.

The band has also released several tour EPs featuring demos and other recordings.
