Bear's Den is a British alternative folk band formed in West London in 2012 by ICMP Vocal graduate Andrew Davie, and Communion Records founder, Kev Jones. 

They released their debut album, ‘Islands’,  in October 2014 on the aforementioned Communion Records, the co-founders of the label being Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons and producer Ian Grimble.

In 2012 the band travelled across the United States in Volkswagen Campervans with Ben Howard, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Staves and was the subject of a 2014 documentary "Austin to Boston" by James Marcus Haney which premiered at the 58th BFI London Film Festival.

Since then, the band has toured the USA several times, in support of Mumford & Sons, Daughter and as outright headliners. They also toured Australia supporting Matt Corby in October, 2013.

In June 2014 the band received the £2,500 Momentum Deezer Award from the PRS for Music Foundation; forming part of the catalyst of the band’s development. In June 2017, Bear's Den supported acclaimed band Kings of Leon on their Lithuanian concert.

Following the release of their third record 'So that you might hear me' in April 2019, Bear's Den played two sold-out shows at Shepherd's Bush Empire. In summer 2019, the band will be playing major festivals around Europe as well as supporting Neil Young on his German tour.
