Brice Randall Bickford is known for recording and performing as The Strugglers from 2001 to 2009. During those years, Bickford released four LPs and toured Europe and the U.S. multiple times before leaving the band name behind. He released his first eponymous album, which was produced by Scott Solter, in 2011.

Bickford's songwriting has earned him wide recognition from influential musicians and critics alike. Pitchfork has described his writing as "tracing a single thought or sketching a single image throughout the course of several bars, building suspense and making you wait patiently for the pay-off".

His sixth album, Paro, was released by Austin-based Keeled Scales on February 24th, 2017.
