Animal Years is an indie rock band, formed by vocalist/guitarist Mike McFadden, bassist Anthony Saladino, and drummer Anthony Spinnato. Their five-song EP, Far From Home , was produced by Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, Vance Joy). It gives listeners an ever-captivating embodiment of the Brookln-by-way-of-Baltimore trio’s powerfully anthemic, consistently inspiring songcraft, ranging from the fist-pumping catchiness of “Caroline” to the intimate warmth of “Friends” to the bittersweet resilience of “Home (I Was Born)”. McFadden’s infectious, passionately direct songwriting is complimented by the group’s dynamic live shows, which blend McFadden’s openhearted vocals and surging acoustic guitars with the punchy rhythmic kick of bassist Anthony Saladino and drummer Anthony Spinnato. The humble attitude and ambitious work ethic that distinguish Animal Years were solidified early on, when McFadden first began writing and performing his own songs in his teen years, releasing his first studio album under his own name while still a high school student in Baltimore. That initial effort earned him a great deal of attention, and even some local radio airplay. His second album, released when he was 18, was an even greater success with fans and local radio stations. Soon, McFadden found his music being featured in commercials for companies like Coca-Cola and Pennzoil..

It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Animal Years booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired.
