Led by a smooth R&B pop vocal, Foreign Figures blends melody driven alt pop with a hip hop backbone and rock & roll attitude. Formed in late 2014 by Seth Dunshee, Jonny Tanner, and brothers Eric and Steve Michels, their unique blend of alt pop is a pure collaboration between four very different artists, mixing vulnerable emotion with bold and deliberate production to create a synthesis of sounds and feelings.
Within their first two years the group wrote, produced and independently released both an EP and an album, amassing thousands of downloads and millions of streams in over 25 different countries. Leading to licensing deals with TVLand, TuneCore and Fox, their initial success also allowed the band’s charismatic live performance to be seen alongside multiple national touring acts, sharing the stage with the likes of X Ambassadors, American Authors, Smallpools, The Aces, and Lukas Graham. Foreign Figures spent the majority of their third year together writing on the road, completing two tours throughout the Western, Central and Southern United States. In September 2018, they released the Overzealous EP, a 6 song effort that quickly garnered praise from the likes of AP magazine, Idobi radio, and Popdust. Rather than holding onto new songs for future releases, the band decided to release a quick follow up to Overzealous in the form of the 2 track Dangerous EP, in October 2018.
