Benjamin Bernthal is a poet and a song writer. As the front man for the band Accordions, Bernthal indulges his love for verbal imagery and combines it with melodies that get into your head and make themselves at home.
Collaboration is at the heart of Accordions method. Friends from other bands often join in, making no two performances the same and making each recording into a celebration. Accordions believe their music comes from many places: discovering a way of playing an old forgotten instrument, passionately expressing age-old truths through these newly discovered means, and most of all a sort of gritty sincerity that permeates the songs.
