In 2014, four long time Minneapolis musicians joined forces to form The Favorite Things, playing original garage pop with a bit of alt country influence thrown in. Their name is taken from one of their biggest song writing and musical influences - The Replacements and their song, “Favorite Thing” (from their album, Let it Be).
The band formed from their common interest in making original music – after a few line-up changes, practice spot changes, and band name changes, they found a formula and a combination that worked – straight ahead songs, catchy hooks, and heart-felt lyrics.
The combination was working at the their live shows, so the band decided to team up with engineer/producer extraordinaire Jacques Wait at Terrarium studio to record their first album, called Coming Clean. The band is very excited to share these studio recordings, to continue writing songs and play high energy live shows.
