Bison Bone Biography:
“Bison Bone is an Americana Rock and Roll band from Denver, CO.

Bison Bone is a little bit country, a little bit rock & roll, and fully led by the boisterous singer/songwriter Courtney Whitehead. The veneer of their “Americana Rock & Roll band” description doesn’t seem to phase the group, as is apparent in their newest album, Find Your Way Out. Whitehead has unabashedly embraced the spirit of the aforementioned term, almost to the point of mockery. The Denver-based band seems fully aware of the connotations surrounding surface level labels and uses it to their advantage by tricking listeners into thinking they are listening to something they are not. It would be easy to think Bison Bone is just another simplistic Americana band, but this is not the case. – Bandwagon Mag 2020

He doesn’t need to name the struggle behind that contentment; it’s there in the semisweet melody and the band’s fine-sandpaper roots-rock grit, a package that recalls Tom Petty or The Wallflowers. – The All Scene Eye 2020

Courtney Whitehead (Vocals/Guitar), Brianna Straut (Vocals/Tambo), Wolf Van Elfmand (Lead Guitar/vocals), Adam Stern (Pedal Steel/Lead Guitar), Tony Piscotti (Bass), Adam Blake (drums).” – www.bisonebone.com
