"In a recent post on the band’s blog, one of the band mates half-jokingly described their sound as “Indie Folk Melancholipop.” But that really fits the vibe of the record. It’s just enough “indie” and “alt” to get your attention, but just enough “pop” to make it accessible. Plus, anyone who can come up with a genre name that rhymes with “lollipop” has to have something on the ball."
"The band draws their inspirations from Augustana and Barcelona. They describe their music, and their image, as Americana. With that hint of country, Anna and Jon's harmonies and lyrics that bring to mind romances of generations that perhaps we have forgotten - I would agree. When asked what they want their audience to experience when they are up there jamming away, Anna replied with, "I want people to be so lost in our music that they feel free to do whatever they want to do. I just want them to want to move." Which I thought was such an honest answer. "
“Like the name suggests, The Whicker and Pine are rustic and bare-bones, crafted from analog sensitivity and earthy melodies. We are excited to have them playing our DU location.... The Whicker and Pine, fronted by singer-songwriter Jon Johnson, a Seattle transplant, craft blissed-out Americana music in the tradition of Rocky Votaloto and Baywood.”
