The End of America is a band of friends who met on the road and found a kindred spirit in one another. The Philadelphia/NYC trio credit their name to Kerouac’s On The Road -- relating to traveling “the groaning continent” in search of inspiration. The sound is centered on their voices, weaving 3 distinct leads into captivating harmonies over a solid foundation of folk, rock, and americana. Fans often draw comparison to CSNY, The Avett Brothers, and Dawes.
James Downes, Trevor Leonard and Brendon Thomas were all frontmen of other projects. Together they have released two EPs (Steep Bay & Shakey) and one LP (The End of America) with “soul-striking harmonies and folk-rock melodies.” WXPN, The Key.
The band made their debut at the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival and were voted Favorite New Artist of the festival. In 2017 the band won the Emerging Artist Showcase at Falcon Ridge Folk Fest, returning in 2018 to perform as FRFF’s Most Wanted band.
During his first Presidential bid, Bernie Sanders chose TEOA’s “Empty Sea” for use in one of his official campaign videos.
