Bonfire Falls is an indie trio from New York for fans of U2, Coldplay, and Imagine Dragons. Combining powerful, intricate harmonies and lush instrumentation with poetic lyrics, this trio creates profound rock: enjoyable, accessible, yet endlessly rewarding upon each listen. Whether dancing jubilantly to the thunderous beat of winning, or strolling along a dirt road with stars over telephone wires, Bonfire Falls will move you long after the music is over.
As individual theatrical artists, Bonfire Falls members hold awards as both performers and composers. Erikka Walsh (violin, vocals) is an original cast member of the Grammy and Tony Award winning musical Once, featuring the music of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. Ryan McCurdy (piano, keyboard, guitars, vocals) is a 2016 Innovative Theater Award nominee for his original compositions for the world premiere of Rush by Callie Kimball. In addition to national radio spots and numerous theatrical tours, lead vocalist Stephen Lyons’ voice has garnered recognition by Tina Shafer for his song, Fall, featured at the New York Songwriter’s Circle competition (home of Grammy winners Norah Jones and Marc Cohn, among numerous others.)
