The Equivocators / Bio

Members: Stacy Chandler (vocals, violin, viola, mandolin), Scott Huler (vocals, drums, banjo, guitar, ukulele, kazoo), Roger Friedensen (guitar, percussion, vocals). Disbanded in 2015.

Bio: A Raleigh-based acoustic trio, The Equivocators perform an eclectic and stubbornly diverse range of original and covers comprising alt country, rock, folk, jazz and American popular songs.

History: In 2011 writer Stacy Chandler interviewed author and speaker Scott Huler, a Piedmont Laureate, for a newspaper profile. As the two discussed their work over a beer at the Mecca, they discovered they had similar taste in music. Stacy has sung and played fiddle at local venues and was featured on the soundtrack of a photo slideshow for the N&O's coverage of Hurricane Irene. Multi-instrumentalist Scott plays drums in a band at his temple with Roger Friedensen. Roger, a part-time professional guitarist, performs regularly in the region and released two CDs with his previous band, Mishpacha. After locking themselves in Roger's den every Monday for four months, The Equivocators were born.

The Equivocators were honored to record many of the songs on this page with Tommy Goldsmith of Cleanhead Sound. If you're liking the sound as much as we do, or you just want to work with one of the best musicians and songwriters around these parts, drop him a line at tommygoldsmith@gmail.com. (P.S. Be sure to ask him to share stories from his decade as a session guy in Nashville!)
