Bombadil = Ben Kweller + Ben Folds
Bombadil are a trio comprising Daniel Michalak, James Phillips and Stuart Robinson, who fall into mesmerizing harmonies concerning love and life. As a multi-instrumental band, each person brings his own unique style and inspirations to life through the bass, piano, harmonica, drums and melodic vocals that rise and fall in pitch with the mood of the tune. Whether inspiration stems from Hemingway novels, Silverstein poems or math and computers, Bombadil have created a 12-track series of pop tunes that inevitably—but not terribly—get stuck in my head. –Lizz Corrigan
