The Ballroom Thieves

Musician/Band Claim this listing

For The Ballroom Thieves, the band’s journey has only just begun, but their roots already run quite deep. A Wolf in the Doorway finds the trio taking this very idea of “roots” and creating ways to make its associated sound progress, while making its encompassing spirit glow.

“Our own personal growth and explorations in songwriting and musicianship caused us to end up in this unique spot where we can generally feel free to be who we are at all times,” says guitarist Martin Earley. “I think we have a certain sound at the moment, but that sound is constantly evolving, and I hope it keeps doing that.”

Stylistically, the Thieves find a captivating mélange of acoustic styles on the album, exploring the basic constructions of folk and pop music while almost wholeheartedly rejecting its restrictions at the same time. It mirrors the band’s sharp awareness of its surroundings that equates to a rare form of musical intelligence.

A Wolf in the Doorway is an early amalgamation of the band’s short but rich history, capturing the minimalism of their early jam sessions as much as the complexity of their matured songwriting.

The Ballroom Thieves family tree has only just begun to bloom, but its roots give the trio a strong and solid structure from which to continue to build. A Wolf in the Doorway documents this growth in the most authentic way, sending any listener off with a heavier heart and a purer soul than when they arrived.

  • Our sold out show at The Old South Meeting House is SO SOON! These puppies are available tonight! Don’t miss out. See you guys at 7!
  • Our newest single is out everywhere today! (Link in bio) ‘Do Something’ is a letter to our con-man president. In the wake of our most recent presidential inauguration it took me less than an hour to feverishly scribble down this plea. It was a time during which we all attempted to endure this new, schismatic administration. We tried to be forbearing and hopeful; to watch and wait. 
As artists, we're often told our job is to entertain and to keep politics and personal opinions out of our shows, but that feels misguided. We are humans, small business owners, citizens, and we, too are meandering through uncharted territory as our country divides itself further over basic human rights, money, and one man's outrageously out of touch ideals and disastrous choices. We will always believe that free speech is a tool to bring people together in the pursuit of truth. 
Now a year has passed and it has become apparent that the patience I once championed is wholly wasted on an egomaniacal president who cares for nothing but his own enrichment. As such, the meaning behind this song has shifted with the times and it now stands as a letter for you, to him, from us. Patience has become a virtue of yesterday, and time's up.
  • SURPRISE. Tomorrow we release a new song called Do Something. Today, you can sneak on it over at @baeblemusic! (Link in bio y’all) 📷: @stephaniebassos
