Artist Bio

Formed in Sleepy Hollow, New York over a decade ago, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams (AKA The Grand Slambovians) pioneered the alt-folk/Americana genre, staying on the fringes of the music industry and under the radar while producing several critically acclaimed studio albums.  ‘A Box of Everything’ the band’s most recent release (April 1st, 2014) is a compilation of the ‘Greatest Hits’ you’ve never heard from this reclusive band.  Their melodic avant-folk conjures a quirkier Tom Petty or fuller Buffalo Tom with an exotic instrumental arsenal. If you like Dylan, Bowie, The Decemberists, you’ll love this band.

Headlining major music festivals and venues across the US, Canada and UK, they built their career from the ground up with a loyal fan base supporting them all the way. Fronted by songwriter Joziah Longo (vocals/guitar/harmonica) whose voice is “Soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic” says The Big Issue, UK and goes on to say “the entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in his voice”. The band features guitarist/mandolin player Sharkey McEwen (think lovechild of David Gilmour and Duane Allman); multi-instrumentalist Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, ukele, theremin, melodica); and Eric Puente (Percussion).

Approached by major labels for years, in 2013 the band met Bob Frank (former president of E1 Music Worldwide/Koch Records) whose Red River Entertainment is “helping us get our music out to the masses”. They were the first artists tapped to sign with the new company along with Wu-Tang Clan and Charlie Daniels.
