The Boggs

The Boggs -- vocalist/guitarist Jason Friedman, slide guitarist Zeke Healy, drummer Brad Conroy, and banjo player Phil Roebuck -- began playing their raw, stripped-down version of folk on street corners and subway platforms in Brooklyn, NY, during the winter of 2001. After playing a gig at New York's Mercury Lounge the following spring, Arena Rock signed the band. The label released its debut, We Are the Boggs We Are, in February 2002. The band has since released two albums inlcluding a self titled release in 2005 and Forts in 2007.
