Ppoacher Ppoacher

Ppoacher Ppoacher

Most simply described as ‘eclectic folk derivative music’, however here is a lengthier one:

“Brothers Brothers’ of ppoacher ppoacher’s unique use of voice and earnestly goofy stage presence have left audiences wondering if the performer before them was an ethereal goblin, a feral roof dog, a long lost friend, a backwoods Kate Bush impersonator, a banshee suffering an identity crisis, or a bag of feelings parading as a woman……

Brothers’ distinct writing style is marked by congenial contrasts: passionate & playful, calculated & relaxed, approachable & quirky. The lyrics communicate a simultaneous existential dread and intoxicating thrill of living and loving, a practice in raw and shameless vulnerability.

Residing in Santa Fe, NM by way of Fayetteville, AR, the influence of the land that made the woman making the music is palpable.  Vocal Melodies expanding and contracting like a drive through the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, dipping howls and glottal stops like the churning of the Buffalo River, earthy grit of guttural tones like the red clay mud both lands harbor.

One can easily hear the influence of various folk music traditions, pop sensibilities, old school country heartbreak, peppered with a feeling of moving through other worlds….primarily the emotional landscape; beauty transmuted through valleys of deep pain, peaks of ecstatic joy, soft rolling hills of serenity, jagged rock formations of rage, and the bizarre catharsis of the open hearted exploration of it all. The performer as vehicle, steering you through with spells of the tenor banjo, celtic harp, and mostly human voice.”

Eleanor Murray

Eleanor Murray

SONGWRITER, PRODUCER, AND ARTIST ELEANOR MURRAY has spent the past twelve years creating and recording music out of the Pacific Northwest. Informed by folk tradition while adhering to no rules, Eleanor Murray’s music exists in a genre all its own. Her songs are often structurally complicated, while also sparse and open, full of warmth and light. Her chord progressions, rhythms, and melodies draw as much from Appalachia as they do from jazz. Her lyrics are as cryptic as they are simple and straightforward. Each album’s sonic landscape is completely its own.

Eleanor’s music catalog includes eleven releases, seven of which under her own name, and the remaining four as collaborations. Since her debut album in 2008, Eleanor Murray has been making music that refuses to repeat itself. Her music has spanned from sweet folk ballads to raucous marches, while never feeling forced. It’s the sound of a sincere artist ever-evolving, never slowing down, always growing. Her hundreds of live shows have established her as a prolific force in indie folk music, while along the way gathering a dedicated fan base and sharing the stage with artists such as Tune-yards, Mountain Man, and Kimya Dawson.

Her albums have spanned a wide range of material and her collaborations extend this range even further. Eleanor is the front-woman and music producer of the electro-pop and dance project Cavegreen, along with lyricist Gianluca Bucci. Eleanor is also the other half of AANTARCTICAA, a haunting post-rock band with Ben Kamen, founder of Olympia Noise Co. And last but not least, Eleanor explored more traditional folk songwriting with fiddle player Pamela Margon, in their acoustic project Tattered Dress.

Honeyslides is a harder take on the Sierra Foothill country sound that Farrow and the Peach Leaves tapped into with “Country Wednesdays.” With driving, locomotive rhythm, soaring guitars, and back-porch style harmonies.
