Bear Bojack is an 8 piece collective of harmony-based alternative folk-soul. Think Ray Lamontagne vocals with ambient Bon Iver arrangements alongside melodies and lyrics which both haunt and uplift in equal measure.

Songwriter/frontman Chris McDonald, originally from Nottingham, found himself in West Cork 3 years ago which he describes as the only place he has ever “truly felt at home as an artist and a human.” Describing making music in West Cork he says “something about the acceptance of the people, the peace and the beauty and integral respect for culture creates a rare melting pot of creativity which is profoundly unique.”

After the critical acclaim of the first album ‘There’s a Fire’ which led to film syncs on several major films such as the Host and Bella Vita Bear Bojack have been back in the studio working on the follow up album 'Hope Dies Last' and with top level supports such as James Vincent McMorrow, Brian Deady and David Kitt 2019 is looking like it will be an exciting and productive year.
