We're there as a part of the DC Music Rocks Festival at the 9:30 Club! We're taking the stage right in the middle of the evening, around the 9pm hour. This is a big deal for us, we hope you can make it!
"Bluesy, rock wonderfulness jam packed into a succinct, exceptionally soulful package." - Brett Stewart, Tilting Windmill Studios
This Memorial Day Weekend we say goodbye to spring the only way we know how... LOUDLY!
This Saturday we're making our debut at Union Stage in the heart of the newest "must visit" neighborhood in DC - The Wharf! It's been an eventful few months, so we couldn't be happier to cap off our spring shows at one of the biggest venues in the city. If you haven't heard of Union Stage or visited The Wharf, now's your chance. If you have been to a show there you know how much we're looking forward to blowing the doors off. While still on the hinges, doors will open at 5:30 and Fellowcraft will begin playing at 6:30 sharp. This will leave you with plenty of time to find food and drinks before enjoying Black Dog Prowl and Stone Driver as they close out your "Friday Part 2" evening of this three day weekend; it's sure to be a treat.
Brian, Brandon, and JR are going to make sure you remember this show! We'd love to see you yelling "Rage, Rage, Rage, Rage" with us to our song The Dying Of The Light from the front row.
Not to brag or anything, but we just released our first brand new single - Stonehearted - off our upcoming LP Three. You can stream, download, or buy Stonehearted on just about every music platform worldwide. You can also check out the live music video below or join us this Saturday to hear it in real life. We'll be thrilled if you find your way out to celebrate our last show before we head back into the studio to finish the rest of our record.
The waiting is over...
As many of you know, our new record has been a true labor of love that's taken a lot longer than our first one. To recap, we recorded and mixed Get Up Young Phoenix in about 19 hours. Our new record has been in progress for a year. The good thing about taking your time is that is you get a lot of time to listen to things, and have the critical ear to critique them; you have a lot of opportunities to get it right. We’re here to tell you that we got it right.
Our first single from our upcoming Full Length LP Three is a brooding, grungy story centered on the plight of the homeless and focuses on the sorrow they face as they are stepped over and often stepped on.
Stonehearted debuted live on DC Music Rocks, and will be made available at the website DCMusicRocks.com on Wednesday, as part of the April 24th Podcast. You can find the single on iTunes, Spotify, above in the embed from Soundcloud, or anywhere that you stream your music, many linked here on this page with all the information about the release.
And hell, if that’s not already awesome enough, we’re wasting no time in sharing Stonehearted with you live. We’ll be celebrating the single release with a 3 hour FREE SHOW at Solly’s on Saturday April 28th! You can RSVP on Facebook to join us as we spend three unadulterated hours serenading you with the best originals and covers we have.
It's been fun, and it's only just getting started.
It's been a fun and relaxing winter for two of the three of us… Brian visited family in Georgia and Brandon headed back to his hometown in the Appalachians, but JR got engaged!! This has led to substantial planning during a time when the rest of the band has been able to lay low. As you’ve seen, the band has been in a “gig-hibernation” since PerfectionCraft in November, but we did sneak out late at night to play World of Beer in January. We barely told a soul, but with only a couple days’ notice we thought it best to simply recap that it was quite a fun jam gig. We typically come back with a vengeance after taking time off like this… and by “vengeance” we mean “string of shows where we get to play our instruments loudly” – we’re lovers not fighters, after all.
We're kicking off this string of spring shenanigans with the Rock and Roll Marathon on March 10th; look for us around the 16 mile mark if you're in the race, but we’re sure you'll hear JR before you see him. We enjoyed jamming at World of Beer in Ashburn, so we’re going back for a night of rousing covers and a couple brand new songs we've been workshopping on April 7th. After WoB we’ll round out our spring with three shows: One on April 28th at Solly’s on U Street where we'll be releasing a single titled Hold the Line and a second at The Ugly Mug on May 4th. Our final spring show will take us to the Wharf for our debut at the lavish new Union Stage! We’re excited to share this show with you as we'll be joining our best of friends in rock and beyond, Black Dog Prowl in opening for DC's own Stone Driver; we're humbled they've asked us onstage as openers.
The support you have shown us thus far is more than we deserve - we thank you for that. Give us a shout if you can make it to one or two or our shows, and we’ll send you an official Fellowcraft HugeHugIOU (valid while supplies last). We wouldn’t get to do any of this without your support!
Lastly, here’s a new video (courtesy of the wonderful Sandi Redman) from the last time we played The Black Cat. The title of this track is Stonehearted, so if you like it keep on the lookout for our LP release later this year.

Video Preview From Our Upcoming Release
Mixing and mastering is ongoing for our upcoming album, 'Three', due out this winter. Here's a video we shot live in the studio at Blue Room to give you a preview. Can't wait to share our rock with you!
It's been a hell of a summer! Over the last couple months we've been hard at work rehearsing, and tracking in the studio, as we continue working on our upcoming EP. We can't wait to share this album with you!
Good news! You don't have to wait that long to hear it! This coming Thursday we are joining up with Short Lives, and Bells & Hunters as they release their newest record and say Goodbye, (for now). We hope you'll come out and join us as we rock the Black Cat right down to the foundation... again ;)
This year took off like a rocket! And while it's started to quiet down, we know it's for a good reason. We're headed back into the studio this summer to work on our sophomore release! Stay tuned, because more details are coming.
But, before you go thinking, "aw, man. When am I going to see that Fellowcraft Band again!?" - this Saturday, in Falls Church, at the VFW post 9274, we'll be playing our last show for the spring and early summer. Before we trundle off into the bilges to track, mix and master our next record, (and really, we can't begin to speculate just how much we hope you'll love it), we hope you'll join us for one last show!
We'll be joining a star studded Punk-Rock line-up which includes the Split Seconds, Derek Evry (who you may remember from our "Get Up Young Phoenix" Album Release show), Dead End Lane, Nine to Five, Meatbot, and Dr. Beardface & the Spacemen. The doors open at 6pm, and Tickets are $5.
7 bands - five bucks - cheap beers - ample parking - what's not to love!?
You can RSVP here... you know, if that's like, your thing.
Last year, we had a chance to do an interview with Britt Waters on DCN's the Sound. You can check it out here!
Fellowcraft was featured on Channel 16/DCN as part of Washington DC's local public access show "The Sound".
Last summer, we filmed an episode of The Sound. The special aired on December 30th on DCN Channel 16. Here's the video! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
(We know there were some technical difficulties with the audio - feedback and mixing levels, etc - we hope this will not detract from your enjoyment!)

Brian, Our Drummer, In The National News
As many of you know, Brian Nelson-Palmer is a Type-1 insulin dependent diabetic. His ability to perform at such a high level and control his diabetes, as opposed to letting it control him, is nothing short of amazing. We're overjoyed that Diabetic Living did a Q&A with him in the latest issue of their national publication. Get your copy today!
