A rogue-folk power trio based out of Portland, Oregon, Fat Kitten sounds, at times, like they don’t have a second to spare. Quirky, thoughtful lyrics are delivered in close-fitting three-part harmony between swift guitar licks and driving stand-up bass.
Frontwoman and songwriter Molly Dechenne, bassist Ryan Lund, and guitarist Daanen Krouth formed Fat Kitten in 2016. With backgrounds ranging from pop and rock to funk and ska, Lund and Krouth give unconventional perspective to Dechenne’s antifolk songs about love, paranoia, drugs and small town blues.
In a time where genres seem to flow together and music saturates one’s daily life, The Woodpile finds a quiet, but compelling voice. The 5-piece “indie-folk-meets-rock-band” combines conventional folk instrumentation, charming storytelling, and rich vocal harmony with beautiful cello melodies, complex arrangements, and dynamic composition that take the listener on a rousing, oft somber and reflective journey.
Members Evan Gwin (vocals, guitar, banjo), Brendan Ruwart (vocals, percussion, guitar, banjo), Jessie Salas (cello, vocals), Molly DeLau (cello, bass guitar), and Jesse Twitchell (electric guitar, vocals) create an intimate and dynamic stage show with frequent instrument exchanges, trading vocal leads, lush instrumental jams, and vulnerable pauses.
Elaine Cole (Born Rachel Paschket) began her musical career as a child, singing in church choirs and music camps in her hometown of Franklin, Tennessee. Shortly after moving to southern California as an adolescent, Elaine’s vocal abilities recieved recognition in the forms of a MACY Award as well as an OUTLOOK Award, both for best overall vocal performance.
After spending early high school years training in a musical theater environment at Laguna Beach High School and OCHSA, Elaine took her musical knowledge and applied to her southern roots. This bred a rabid appreciation for bluegrass and roots music, prompting her to join The Stolen Faces, where she would recreate the vocal abilities of Donna Jean Godchaux in a touring Grateful Dead tribute. From singing with Allen Thompson and Elizabeth Cooke, to starting her own band with Bradley Rosen (The Stone Hollers), Elaine has followed her passion of delving into the Americana.
