Twenty-year-old Chicago native Ezra Furman received the greatest Bar Mitzvah present ever. At a mere thirteen he was given a guitar, and ever since he has been creating memorable and melodic songs with reckless abandon. Ezra’s fantastic tales challenge your worldview while pulsing with a frenetic rock energy that could make even the dead dance. He tops it off with his innate eccentricity that would do Devendra Banhart, or even David Byrne proud.
Perhaps it was this very blend of qualities that got the attention of producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine).
