Pinegrove were formed in 2010 in Montclair, NJ by childhood friends Evan Stephens Hall and drummer Zack Levine. With roots in their hometown DIY scene, they emerged from the depths of Bandcamp with a collection of articulate, emotionally complex songs that resonated deeply with an eager audience. Evan’s superlative songwriting –  informed as much by country and folk influences as the punk rock scene of his peers – and matched by the band’s electrifying, joyous live shows quickly gained them a cult following. Over the space of two studio albums  – 2016’s Cardinal and 2018’s Skylight – and extensive touring, Pinegrove blossomed into a success story, filling theaters around the world with fans eager to commune with their songs of “empathy, introspection and compassion.”


Hall named the band after a “beautiful and regulated, yet natural and messy” grid of pine trees on his college grounds. ‘The Pinegrove’ was a place of introspection, repose and spiritual serenity, and a place he had established to be creatively fertile. That influence – the peace found in nature and contemplation –  is a theme in his songwriting. “Moment” continues that tradition with references to emotional chaos, traffic and imagery of “an animal scared stiff in the lights of the van.” It’s a powerful return from a band at full creative tilt.


Pinegrove’s line-up is an ever evolving entity built around a group of likeminded musical collaborators from a close knit creative community. This revolving cast of characters  has allowed the songs to take on new and exciting arrangements from tour to tour. The upcoming live shows will feature longtime Pinegrove members  Nick Levine, Sam Skinner, Josh Marre and a new addition to the lineup, Megan Benavente, alongside Zack and Evan.

Praise for Pinegrove:


“There's a confessional quality to the songs of Pinegrove that feels reassuring. The problems that swirl around Evan Stephens Hall's head feel universal” 

Bob Boilen, NPR


“Pinegrove…revolves around Hall’s ability to break your heart and put it back together again in the span of a single song.”

 Consequence Of Sound 


“Pinegrove's debut LP Cardinal recalls some of the most consistently likable rock bands of the past 20 years in their most easy going phases: There’s the rootsy shamble of early Wilco, the wiggly guitar solos and general guilelessness of pre-prog Built to Spill. But beneath the amiable surface is an intense work about one of the most important things imaginable: how to make our friendships really matter.”



“Cardinal is an emotional record that doesn’t get bogged down in melodrama. Instead,Pinegrove deconstructs the intangibles and spits them back out in the form of powerfully memorable songs.”

 AV Club


“The Montclair, New Jersey's band's sound–off-the-cuff, loose heart-on-sleeve indie-rock cut with Americana–is the perfect vessel for that kind of premature twilight, anxiety and loss. Above all else, it feels so goddamned natural.”



“What’s unique about Pinegrove is how they compress uncertainty, doubt and fear without being overbearing.”

 DIY Magazine


“Simple and understated, Pinegrove grafts unassuming banjo and pedal-steel textures to classic slacker indie rock, making each moment as engaging as the next.”

Boston Globe


“There’s no flash here, just a finely crafted batch of searingly personal indie rock songs. Unless you never had to grow up, it will resonate.”
