More than anything, Bear is a curious life-explorer with a penchant for going off the beaten-track and uplifting the eccentric. Appropriately, he learned sitar and studied ethnomusicology at Oberlin and has played at truly some of the most random music venues of world, from the clubs in Buenos Aires to Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, evangelical churches in the rural Midwest and on the top of a giant Dodo Bird at Burning Man. He has collaborated with a myriad of artists including Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe), The North Mississippi Allstars, Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), and recently joined Norwegian sensation Erlend Øye (Kings of Convenience, Whitest Boy Alive) in a new project that will debut soon.
