Representing the “very best of the U.S. Arts community” Filligar has a prolific catalog heralded by some of the most influential musicians, journalists, and cultural outposts of our times. For two Presidential Administrations, the United States Department of State has delegated the band cultural ambassadors– sending them worldwide from Russia to Central Asia, the Middle East and South America as emissaries representing American arts, values and aspirations.
Filligar is Casey Gibson (piano/keys) and the Mathias brothers Johnny (guitar/vocals), Teddy (bass), and Pete (drums). Together, the quartet has produced a music catalog celebrated as “of prestige value” by The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). They have recorded at hallmark analog studios (Gravity Studios, Electrical Audio), performed at the nation’s venerated venues (LA’s Troubadour, NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, DC’s Wolf Trap, and Chicago’s Lincoln Hall) and supported GRAMMY-winning artists such as Counting Crows and The Black Keys. “The Force of the Feeling” is the first single from their new LP Future Self out in early ’22.
