Fleet Foxes Bio:

Fleet Foxes formed when teenagers Robin Pecknold and Skye Skjelset, who went to high school together, started performing as a duo. After graduation, they amassed a band and teamed up with Seattle-based producer Phil Ek, who recorded their first EP. Over the course of the next couple years, the band quickly developed a following in Seattle that led to the recording of their second EP Sun Giant and attracted the attention of the SubPop label. After releasing Sun Giant in early 2008, they quickly followed with their full-length self-titled debut, which wound up on many critics Best of 2008 lists.
