It was March 24th, 2016. Future Thieves were live-streaming their show at Blue Rock Studios in Wimberley, Texas. The adrenaline from performing at SXSW only a week earlier added some extra fuel to the band’s blend of melodic rock and turbocharged Americana. “How’s everybody doing out there in the world?” asks Elliot Collett (lead vocals / rhythm guitar) before launching into “The Floor.” Viewers were glued to their screens as Elliot and band members Austin McCool (lead guitar), Nick Goss (bass), and Gianni Gibson (drums) deliver a stirring set of songs from their debut album Horizon Line (2015), plus new material that reflects why press and fans are raving about these “…incredible songwriters” (The Tennessean).
In less than sixty minutes, Future Thieves completed their next album, Live at Blue Rock.
From festivals like Bonnaroo, Summerfest, and Forecastle to standing room-only shows across the U.S., Future Thieves thrive in a live setting. Paste, American Songwriter, and several other outlets have spotlighted the group. The band regularly packs venues from Los Angeles to New York City to their home base, Nashville.
Though each band member followed a different route musically, the synergy between them sparked from the moment Future Thieves formed in October 2013. Nick and Austin knew each other from their time in Evansville, Indiana before settling in Nashville. Elliot hailed from Eastern Kentucky coming south with his old band and Gianni came to Nashville by way of LA, NY and London.
Future Thieves began recording Horizon Line during the summer of 2015 after sharpening their sound through months of gigs and touring. “We had a little three-song EP but we wanted to make something bigger,” says Elliot. “It was good to go in the studio and record songs that we’d been performing live on the road.”
