The Desert Kind / Bio

The sound of The Desert Kind resonates in the rising mountains and twisting roads of the pacific northwest echoing emotional struggles and passions penned by artists like Woody Guthrie and Roy Harper. The songs are culled from day to day struggle of common people live and thrive in the complex and sometimes complexly simple world. A blend of Americana country and folk ballads Chris Bigley's lyrics emerge from a root which is common to all people but remains unnoticed until it is given the grace of poetic verse, this divergence of poetry and universality creates a sound which is both familiar and challenging in the direction it forges.
