San Francisco based City Tribe have released “Le Billet Doux” from their upcoming yet-to-be-named EP, which is due out this fall.
The band started as the acoustic duo of Jake Jones and Duncan Nielsen, who had a regular Tuesday night gig at John Colins in SOMA. They soon added drummer Scott Tarango and bassist Eric Wallace and built a following that led to sold-out gigs at Kimo’s and Hotel Utah. City Tribe creates nice harmony-driven folk rock that definitely has a classic California feeling.
While you anxiously await the release of their EP, you can see City Tribe live at the Rickshaw Stop on an all-local bill, along with Berkeley’s Big Tree and Yesway (Kacey Johnasing and Emily Ritz of DRMS) on Saturday, June 30.
