John Underwood is a multi-instrumentalist solo artist from Reno, NV with an unusual setup. He's placed six instruments around him all running into a loop pedal, so he can create a full folk band sound live in front of the audience with banjo, acoustic guitar, trumpet, trombone, bass, and an acoustic style drum setup with cajon, washboard and some cymbals. His music has spawned out of the ashes of his folk-pirate-gypsy band The Deadly Gallows, and the influences of his current folk-gypsy projects Six Mile Station and Dirty Kid Discount. A lot of people claim to be a one man band, but John will show you in one set how to put together all the pieces for such a thing, and what that full band would sound like. https://youtu.be/ScXZLjJ0egI https://youtu.be/xCqjz4mD_7A https://youtu.be/L0zcZ3IwVKs https://magnifi.fm/music/john-underwood/songs https://www.reverbnation.com/banjohnunderwood Minor Birds is a two piece that play beautifully dark songs of truth. https://youtu.be/If3A0rPYDW8 https://minorbirds.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/MinorBirds/ http://www.reverbnation.com/minorbirds The Bone Garden is an SD/TJ native expressing radical waves of thoughts and feelings, living in sync with crumbling cities and expanding theses on how to be. https://thebonegarden.bandcamp.com/album/ship-in-a-bottle-2 https://www.facebook.com/lmatthebonegarden/ https://soundcloud.com/thebonegarden

The relationship these two have is very honest and open and it comes ...See Full Bio
"There is nothing sweeter than the pure, honest music, that runs deep into your soul. When you have the pleasure of hearing The Minor Birds, a duo based in Oakland, the chaotic world around you melts away, if only for a few minutes."
