Found Audio is a Grassrock/Psychfolk band from Somerville that makes up its own genres. John Bragg vox/guitar, Tim Brown guitar/vox, Joe Bouchard keys, Peter Omalyev bass/vox, Denny Kennedy drums.


An email in early 2015 about a guitar pedal led guitarist/vocalist Stephan Nordgren to guitarist James Forbes. After recruiting bassist Erica Belden and drummer Brett Pieper, SEBIO (SEE-be-oh) was born.

After forming, SEBIO swung through most of the local venues, where they performed new material and songs off of Nordgren’s 2012 EP, “In Hardwood Groves”.

Take four people from Louisiana, Vermont, Connecticut, and Sweden.
Add equal parts of folk, old-fashioned country, with a pinch
of bluegrass and gospel. Put it into a pot of cover tunes from
the last century. Spice with plenty of harmony vocals and add an
original or two. That's Tail - rootsy, acoustic, and pleasant.

What to expect? Songs of Neil Young, Beatles, Dylan, Traditionals,
Steve Earl, Grateful Dead, Pixies, 80’s pop\70s hits, originals.
All presented with a very personal touch.
