The Goat and the Feather / Bio

The story goes like this. Shane Fairchild had been building soundscapes since this side of forever. Malcolm Rollick had been on tour by herself and was kinda tired of it. They got together to start a two-step band.

Something else happened when they started writing. Shane stopped nesting with her sounds, bought a bigger hat and stepped on stage. Malcolm cocooned into Essy Redbird and bought a beat up tenor guitar.

When Shane and Essy write, they imagine themselves into the Dirty Thirties and dress up like country stars. Shane rests sweet and easy into her mandolin. Essy mends her dresses and digs for words in the seams. The result is a gritty-sweet take on indie country that grows hidden and tough like wild strawberries.

Essy and Shane are home-recording their first EP this May, and touring the Pacific Northwest at the end of July. Keep an eye out.
