The Tenants / Bio

The Tenants are a folk Americana band currently based out of Tacoma, WA. The Tenants formed as a duo in 2010 in Appleton, WI. The husband and wife team of Mitchell and Allison Dorn got their start playing coffee shops and bars around northeastern Wisconsin.
In the fall of 2012 the couple moved to Tacoma, WA to pursue their music full time. Over the last year The Tenants have booked shows with local bands like The Sherman Family, Champagne Sunday, The Rallies, and several solo artists like Dave Hannon, Luke Stanton, and Christopher Wood.
The Tenants combine artful, gritty lyrics with strong vocal harmonies and the call and response of keyboard and acoustic guitar. The Tenants' lyrics are centered on the Americana tradition, and provide an interesting commentary on life around us.
Up next for the Tenants is a spring of shows around the Sound. Then, the summer brings an exciting road trip of shows from Tacoma, WA to Couer d'Alene, ID, and Missoula, MT to Aberdeen, SD, and Appleton, WI to Chicago, IL. Check out the Tenants at a venue near you, and look forward to an upcoming album summer 2014.
