The Bear & The Bison


After playing in southern California as a solo artist and releasing two albums (Down the Mountain, Home of The Wheel), North Carolina native, singer/songwriter Mark Whitfield Lennon teamed up with Buffalo native, songwriter/bassist, Courtney Lennon (a descendant of songwriter Stephen Foster) in Los Angeles in 2011. 


With a new home, The Bear & The Bison now bring their minimalist, Americana sound to Buffalo, NY. Joined by Phoenix native, guitarist, Jacob Brockway, The Bear & The Bison blend Country, Bluegrass and Rock, creating songs that chronicle their experiences across the great American landscape, combining contemporary themes that blend Courtney’s straightforward, early American style, with Mark’s rootsy, psychedelic prose, paired with a stripped-down, vintage sound.
