Bridges is a folk-rock band from Athens, Georgia. Influences include U2, Sting, and the Dave Matthews Band.
The band formed in late 2014 when singer and songwriter Alex Young recruited some friends to record an EP. Young mowed audio engineer Brad Fisher’s lawn for 10 weeks in exchange for studio time and recording services.
Currently, the band’s lineup varies; different friends join Young on drums, bass, guitar and saxophone. Known for their heartfelt and insightful lyrics, superb musicianship, and energetic live shows, Bridges continues to play to larger audiences across the southeastern US.
