A duo of Fort Collins natives Brian Collins and Sean Waters, the Seers create harmony-laden acoustic folk and indie rock. Pianist and vocalist Brian Collins has been blind from birth and started writing songs at the age of six. Sean Waters began playing music with Brian in high school. Their first band together, Wasabi, was voted “Best Jam Band” by Denver’s Westword (2007) and “Best Jam Band” by the Fort Collins Musicians Association (2007 and 2008).
In 2009, at the beginning of the end of Wasabi, Collins and Waters founded the Seers to experiment with stripped-down arrangements, singing, and songwriting. In 2010, they self-produced a lof-fi stream-of-consciousness EP, "Universal Tree." In 2011, after getting 2nd place in the 2010 Scene Magazine Battle of the Bands, the Seers recorded and released "Hydra," an electric guitar driven rock EP. They've since release a string of self-released albums and EPs, working with local musicians and, among others, producer Danny Kalb, whose credits include Beck and Fierce Bad Rabbit. Playing over 100 shows a year since 2012, The Seers have earned the reputation of one of the hardest working bands in the region -- leaving audiences amazed with their repertoire and talents.
They will likely post their 1000th show in the summer of 2020, and have two EPs planned for release in 2020. A Rock Opera, "The Ballad of Sir Blankspot" is scheduled for production in late 2020 into 2021.
