Emily Lazar & Joe LaPorta Master Boy & Bear's Debut "Moonfire"

Crooning Aussie folk band Boy & Bear are on their way to the top with the recent release of their debut, "Moonfire," via Universal Republic/Island Records Australia. The lush 11-song album was mastered by Emily Lazar and Joe LaPorta.

Boy & Bear have come a long way since lead singer Dave Hosking started the group just over two years ago. Their debut EP, "With Emperor Antarctica," released in 2010, reached #63 on Australian ARIA charts, led to a series of performances supporting Mumford & Sons during their Australian tour and even caught the attention of their current labels Universal Republic/ Island Records Australia.  Fast forward past hundreds of shows and months of relentless songwriting/recording in Nashville with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Shins, My Morning Jacket, Minus the Bear) and the band is now celebrating the release of a stunning debut LP! 
Peaking at #2 on iTunes Australia and #2 on the ARIA Top 50 Albums chart, Boy & Bear's "Moonfire" is taking them places, fast. If you missed them on their recent US tour, keep an eye out because their three-part harmonies & jangling guitars will surely be coming this way again soon!
