The Last Bison at the BTRhouse in Austin, TX

The Last Bison is a folk-pop ensemble from Chesapeake, Virginia. At core, they’re driven by the songwriting of Ben Hardesty, supported by a mix of family and friends filling out the group’s music. With the recent addition of more electric instruments to their arsenal, as well as a return to the independent realm after a brush with the major label world, they continue to make lush, inspiring music. The group stopped by the BTRhouse in Austin for this moving performance featuring songs from their recent release, VA.

Featured song: “This Changes Everything”

Special thanks to Southern Tier Brewing Company for sponsoring the BTRhouse sessions.
