(Safety Harbor, Florida) Safety Harbor Songfest 2017 gave the chance to support an amazing art community at a local venue. A friend from Michigan met us with a wild spark in his eyes said, “The Accidentals are here!” At that point if I had any idea why he was so excited I would have run to see them.
At the after show gathering some of the bands and artists were playing intimate sets at the Safety Harbor Art & Music Center. I stood in the back of the room as The Accidentals drew their bows and was goose-bumped from the first note; so captivated I didn’t move, with tears in my eyes. This doesn’t happen often for me.
Savannah Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause are each gifted multi-instrumental musicians and vocalize together harmonically. Their edgy yet precise ability to strike emotion hit me and their lyrical conveyance is a fresh perspective. Diving into every song I could find by The Accidentals was a deep well, like getting to know a new friend.
Cherry on the icing on the cake??? They have a single “KW”, yup Keller Williams! Our favorite guitar wizard magician lyricist, recorded the guitar for the track. The Accidentals toured with Keller and collaborated on his album as well. Delicious.
