Bears Of Manitou has been compiling sounds from our hearts over the last few years. It's time we put our hearts in your hands.

Hey there! We are Bears Of Manitou from Tempe Arizona. We have been playing music together as a family for 2 years, and as a band for almost 4. We put out an EP for a non-profit event 3 years ago, and a few singles in between.  

Before Bears Of Manitou we came from the likes of Lydia, Greeley Estates, and more... Our endeavor now is a departure from these past projects, and an exciting step forward in our musical future.

Today we are on the cusp of putting out our very first self-produced full length album, Origins. The songs have been gathered over the years from personal journeys and shared adventures we have had as a band. This record will mark the true origin of Bears Of Manitou, and will signify a greater journey that we want to take you on, with us.

Now we want to give our friends, family, and fans a tangible CD/Vinyl they can hold in their hands. The funds we are asking for will just cover the cost of recording, mastering and printing the CDs and LPs. 

It is incredibly important for us to do everything we can on our own, and once the costs are paid, we want to give it all back to you.

We are always creating more art. Keep checking back at www.bearsofmanitou.com for updates.
