Biography

The Low Anthem is an American indie folk band from Providence, Rhode Island, formed in 2006. The band consists of Ben Knox Miller (vocals, guitar), Jeff Prystowsky (drums, vocals, double bass), Mike Irwin (bass, trumpet, guitar), Tyler Osborne (guitar, bass) and Florence Wallis (vocals, violin).

Founded by duo Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky, The Low Anthem recorded and self-released two studio albums, The Low Anthem (2006) and What The Crow Brings (2007), before the arrival of vocalist and clarinettist Jocie Adams in 2007. In 2008, the band released its third studio album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, and increased its fanbase significantly with the album's re-release on Nonesuch Records and Bella Union.

In 2009, multi-instrumentalist and longtime friend Mat Davidson joined the band for its fourth studio album, Smart Flesh (2011), which was recorded in an abandoned pasta sauce factory. During The Low Anthem's tour in support of the album, Davidson left the band and was replaced by bassist and trumpet player Mike Irwin. Five months later, the band added a fifth member to its line-up, guitarist and bassist Tyler Osborne.
