Bishop Allen is the project of Justin Rice and Christian Rudder, two Brooklyn musicians with a penchant for simple yet charming pop-rock tunes. Favoring acoustic guitars, glockenspiels, wood blocks, and other low-budget melody makers, the band crafts memorable tunes with the sort of lyrics you just might find yourself humming for days (i.e. "Take another picture with your click-click-click-click camera"). An appearance in the 2008 film "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" boosted Bishop Allen's rising profile, and both members have acted in a number of independent films.
