The Accidentals are an American band formed in Traverse City, Michigan, in 2012 by singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist and Katie Larson. The group has featured an eclectic blend of indie-folk, pop, bluegrass, rock, classical, and other genres. They have released four full-length albums, two EPs, and two live albums.
Buist and Larson grew up in musical families, released their first two albums while in high school, hired percussionist Michael Dause in 2014, and began touring nationally. The band signed with a major label by the time the members were around age 21, but they later returned to releasing their recordings independently. They also lead music workshops at schools across the US
