Born Animal is an eclectic, blues-tinged indie rock band, based in Music City, USA. The brainchild of Ryan Stowe and Stephen Luther, the two native-Texans who relocated to Nashville and fell in with Sean Rosettie and Evan Miranda. The group hit their stride immediately, wowing audiences with electric live shows and passionate songwriting. Their music defies any one genre and is filled with dynamic energy, stick-in-your-head melodies, and lyricism that questions the complex relationships between individuals and the world we reside in.
The four-piece began playing live in early 2016 and have since transitioned to a regional touring act. They’ve performed at high-profile Nashville venues like Exit/In, the High-Watt, The End, and Vanderbilt's Rites of Spring Music Festival alongside Gucci Mane & DNCE.
Their first release, The Wild (EP), was produced by Lincoln Parish (from Cage the Elephant) with Carey Ott and was released in February 2016 via United We Jam Records. Born Animal's sophomore EP Celebration Revolution was released on December 1st. The lead single and music video of I Think I Think Too Much was premiered via Pancakes & Whiskey, and the follow-up single Snake Eyes premiered on the The Deli Nashville. Lightning 100 featured Born Animal as their Local Artist of the Week leading up to the release.
