About The Collection: Combining the energy and volume of a marching band with the sing-along sensibility of pop melodies, The Collection has quickly become a commanding force on the national stage. After an initial release wrestling with deaths within community, Ars Moriendi, praised by NPR and American Songwriter, and the whittled-down band's loss-of-faith follow-up, "Listen To The River," who's single, Sing Of The Moon quickly garnered over 5 Million plays, the group presented "Entropy," a personal record detailing the de- and re-construction that bookend vocalist Wimbish's divorce, wreck, move, and loss of community.
Since that first release, the band has been busy, touring nationally on shows with a variety of acts, from The Oh Hellos and Family & Friends, to mewithoutYou and Josh Garrels. This year brings exponential excitement, however, with Entropy debuting at #6 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts and #11 on National College Radio in December, single Beautiful Life hand-picked by Megan Trainor for her Wedding Songs Spotify Official playlist, and an exciting Top Shelf placement in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, a top 10 spot out of 6000 entries.
With that energy and fire, The Collection are moving forward into the Breathe Till I'm Full Tour, a celebration/commiseration of all that is life, from the good, to the bad, and the ugly. Through changing and condensing lineups, near-fatal bike wrecks, and the energy of all that has come of the last several years of hard work, the 7-piece indie-folk band maintains their original vision: to create safe and open space for folks wherever they're at in their lives.
