Hammock is Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson. Since the band’s founding in 2003, when they began collaborating to escape Nashville songwriting circles, Hammock have released a string of acclaimed albums, masterfully tracing across sub-genres of ambient, post-rock, neoclassical and shoegaze.

For all Hammock’s reach in left-of-center spaces — and the praise that’s been heaped on them by BBC, Guitar World, Wayne Coyne, Jónsi, and Ricky Gervais — it’s worth remembering that Byrd and Thompson hail from, respectively, a small town in Arkansas and a 102-acre farm in Tennessee, far from the world’s experimental centers. Hammock’s work has always represented a natural flow of emotional instincts with little intentional relationship to theory.  

Beyond their influential catalog, and licenses to major film studios and advertising from Nike to Porsche, Hammock scored Kogonada’s award-winning film Columbus, starring John Cho, Haley Lu Richardson, and Parker Posey, and created tracks for We Will Rise Again, the critically-acclaimed official soundtrack to Ubisoft’s hit video game Far Cry 5.
