Smoke Season was formed in early 2013 by Gabrielle Wortman and Jason Rosen. Combining their musical backgrounds, the duo created their own unique take on Americana, infusing folk with electronic undertones and rich vocal harmonies that has been steadily capturing the attention of fans and press since.
Smoke Season catapulted into must-know status during their impressive August residency at Los Angeles' acclaimed venue, the Echoplex. Their performances were hailed in the press by LA Weekly ("Music Pick of the week"), Los Angeles Magazine, Buzzbands LA, Radio Free Silver Lake, Free Bike Valet, Grimy Goods & more.
Their sophomore EP, "Hot Coals Cold Souls", released July 29, 2014, has been gaining impressive traction in the press for its powerful mash-up of styles and refinement of their already unique sonic imprint. Described as "pop, rock, electronic, Americana, and folk elements collide in an inspired way" (The Daily Album), the EP "pulls mood-building tricks from country, R&B, dancy indie, chillwave (the intro to “Opaque”) and more" (Independent Clauses).
Smoke Season began in 2013 with a self-produced their debut EP, Signals, and self-directed music video for their first single, Soleil. After being released in March 2013, the Signals EP went on to independently sell thousands of copies and garner critical acclaim. Since then, Smoke Season has been steadily touring, showcasing their music around the country and most notably at 2014 Sundance Film Festival, on AXS TV, Bite Size TV, Balcony TV and more.
