Most notable for his work as the drummer of Wisconsin hailed Bon Iver, Sean Carey -- who goes by S. Carey -- unintentionally started a solo side project while on tour.

S. Carey began writing much of his material while on the road with Bon Iver, and after adding layer upon layer, the end result was an ambient record reminiscent of Sigur Ros. To emulate this sound live, his current touring band is a small chamber group that consists of a string bassist, a violist, and a clarinet player added to the modern sounds provided by guitar and drums.

Songs Performed: "Move," "We Fell," and "In the Dirt."
