The Astronomers are the band you can’t help but root for. Led by frontman Michael Stensland and producer Ben Baker, the duo boasts a dynamic and energy-filled performance that blends pop, rock, and electronic elements, resulting in a sound that’s uniquely their own. Formed in 2019 and proudly independent the duo write, produce, mix, and master tracks from their home studio in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Their music gained momentum in 2020 with the release of single “Overthinking,” which received support from top 40 radio station; 101.1 WIXX, hitting #1 on Christmas Eve of 2020. Subsequent singles “Bad Type” and “Hotel Rooms” also received full rotation status, with “Hotel Rooms” charting at #88 on US top 40 radio and hitting #1 on 101.1  WIXX.

The Astronomers began 2023 with their first headline tour across the Midwest in support  of their debut album, “The Occasion”, culminating in performances on The Rock Boat  XXII festival at sea. The festival, which set sail from Miami to the Dominican Republic,  and the Bahamas saw The Astronomers playing alongside national acts American  Authors, LIT, Neon Trees, and more.

Following the release of the first two singles from their fourth chapter of music, “Orange  Afternoon” and “Last Call” the Wisconsin-based duo is set to kick off their West Coast  tour in June of 2023.

With their undeniable talent, captivating live performances, and authentic sound, it’s  only a matter of time before The Astronomers become household names.

The 2021 release ‘Cross My Heart I Hope U Die’ established Meg Smith as an exciting talent to watch. Now at almost 10 Million streams, the bewitching pop break-up anthem was featured on numerous Spotify playlists.

Her most recent single, ‘Joni’ was featured on Spotify’s Sad Hour, New Music Friday UK, and Next Gen Singer-Songwriter. Meg’s ‘Rom Com Pop’ EP, released in February, is a collection of songs that sound like the soundtrack to an early 00s rom com. The songs were featured on New Music Friday USA, as well as various New Music Friday’s around the globe.

Her debut single ‘Cross My Heart I Hope U Die’ is the theme of ‘EZRA’, the popular LGBTQ+ Vampire series on Apple TV. Meg appeared in Season 1 and is expected to appear in Season 2. The song is also featured in season 2 of ‘Ginny and Georgia’ on Netflix.
