The Last Year

About The Last Year: As one of the industry’s most respected female-fronted bands, The Last Year has built its reputation on its innate ability to blend alternative rock and new wave. Led by singer/songwriter Niki Barr, who embodies an edgy yet magnetic stage presence, and Scott Ensign (guitar, bass, synth, percussion, programming), the duo is rounded out by touring musicians BJ Kerwin (drums, percussion), who performed on the new EP, and guitarist Scott Griffith (from The Perfects) to create an electrifying energy while pouring its heart into every performance. This Baltimore-based band continually challenges its fans to embark on a veritable rollercoaster ride of sorts from their airy atmospheric ambience and powerful souring melodies to their heavy guitars and pounding sub synth sounds. With the support of their label, Shanachie Entertainment (home to such artists as Rusted Root and the Flobots), The Last Year will release its new EP on August 13, 2013, featuring five brand new songs, including the single “Sugar.” Describing the new release as “limitless”, the group says that their latest songs come from the dark place Barr is almost known for and showcase the band's perfect blend of natural and synthetic sounds. Officially formed in 2012 after years of writing and performing together, the group has spent the past few decades embarking on several world tours (34 countries) with the Armed Forces Entertainment, bringing their music to nearly every corner of the world.
