Meet The Band

If road trips and passing scenery had a sound of their own, it would be Foreseeable Futures, an acoustic folk duo whose dream-like harmonies evoke influences like First Aid Kit, Johnny Swim, and The Civil Wars. Hailing from Honolulu, Hawaii, Foreseeable Futures’ music bridges the borders of Americana ballads, the heartfelt strains of the indie acoustic genre, and the rhythmic, soaring hooks of pop.

Though Phil Potter (guitar, vocals) and Anna Sachs (vocals, harmonica, melodica) have spent almost their entire lives involved in music, their years together as a band have culminated in Foreseeable Futures’ full-length debut album, "Stories", released in Winter 2015.  

In a dim karaoke room, Phil Potter and Anna Sachs first realized that the combination of their voices together was something both thrillingly novel yet comfortingly familiar. At the time, Potter had been searching for a musical partner to explore his growing interest in slow heartfelt songs, like those of Ryan Adams and the Civil Wars. Potter and Sachs found they shared a passion for simple harmonies and earnest songwriting, and they aspired to create a similar sound as their acoustic folk influencers.

Foreseeable Futures developed their sound by playing acoustic covers around Honolulu’s open mic circuit and quickly began to pick up momentum by writing their own songs and collaborations with established groups like Discord & Rye and the Maneki Nekos. They owe their success to date to a loyal local following and the support of venues like Bevy, Downbeat Diner, Fresh Café, Anna O’Briens, and REAL Gastropub, among others. They also enjoy playing events like pop-up dinners & weddings.

With the recent release of their debut full-length album, Foreseeable Futures  have realized their goal of creating a sound that focuses on honest songwriting, as influenced by their shared love of folk, indie, and pop.
