The Druthers make heart-sweeping folk/pop with his and hers harmony. This magnetic Portland, OR six-piece is defined by the unmistakable voices of their two lead singers—the open, weathered rasp that is his (Kirk Duncan) and the whisper-to-wail force that is hers (Erin Adkisson). The pair is accented by a song-serving flurry of trumpet, piano, organ, guitars, drums and bass that evokes the likes of Swell Season and the Civil Wars, and lives somewhere between the music of Ben Harper and Ray Lamontagne. Unmerciful, heartbreaking, uplifting and full of grace, The Druthers make moving music.
Pretty Gritty is the serendipitous joining of the talents of Blaine Heinonen and Sarah Wolff, both born and raised in Montgomery County, MD. Although they originate from different rock bands, fate brought them together at local "open-mic" nights, where it became evident that they shared an interest in writing and performing songs that mix country, rock, blues, and soul. It's said that she brings the "pretty" while he brings the "gritty", combining for an engaging alt-country duo with seducing harmonies and addicting acoustics.
