Tour Diaries: Bendigo Fletcher

Bendigo Fletcher had Columbus, Ohio completely enraptured with their folk-rock perfectly entwined with transcendent psychedelia.

Bendigo Fletcher is a beauty of a band, masterfully crafting stories and depicting what it is to be wonderfully human with folk-rock spectacularly infused with psychedelic twang. The five-piece consists of frontman Ryan Anderson (vocals), Conner Powell (bass), Andrew Shupert (lead guitar), Evan Wagner (keys, guitar, auxiliary percussion), and  Chris Weis (drums), hailing from Louisville, Kentucky. Following the independent release of their music since 2017, Bendigo Fletcher signed with Elektra Records in early 2021 to release their album Fits of Laughter in August of that year. In October of 2022, Bendigo Fletcher's EP Wingding, released as the band's second project with Elektra, filled with soulful flourishes, imaginative fuel, and just a few "skellies in the attic."

Bendigo Fletcher sat down with us on their Columbus, Ohio stop on the tail-end of their Fall Tour to talk about their hell of a year, and what they have coming up in 2023.
