The 502s perform June 23 at Quest Brewing in Greenville, SC
The 502s new album finds the 5-piece indie folk band reveling in the thrills and joys of living their dreams, yet resilient in the face of heartbreak and relentless upheaval which comes with the passing of time.
Led by earnest banjo-strumming songwriter Ed Isola, The 502s are a band of brothers whose sound has received critical acclaim as celebratory, wholesome, and thoroughly life-affirming.
In the premiere for their single “What To Do”, No Depression declared The 502s ”a charismatic indie folk band with enough energy to take on the world”.
Undoubtedly drawing on sounds of bluegrass and Dixie swing, The 502s make no fuss about acknowledging their influence from modern folk-pop’s usual suspects - Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers
