"Shook Twins' performances feel like a glimpse into a long history of musical discoverytheir shows can feel like late-night porch sessions, where the songs are so internalized they stream out like a conversation." Emilee Booher, Willamette Week
Born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, SHOOK TWINS are a quirky folk band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman & Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins sound are a wide range of instrumentation, including banjo, guitar, upright bass, mandolin, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, djembe and their signature golden egg. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic instrumentation coupled with Laurie's inventive use of a looping machine, and Katelyn's repurposed telephone microphone ,set their sound apart, creating an eclectic and eccentric blend of folk, roots, pop and fun.
A traveler, a dreamer, and a banjo pickin' sweetheart from Arkansas, KENDL WINTER sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of her tour van and spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Her voice is beautifully unique and bold, and her songs are thoughtfully poetic and rooted deep within her experience. Previously of the Blackberry Bushes String band, she has branched off and out and her solo work is even more captivating and mesmerizing. Stemming from an old-time and bluegrass bend, she's joined by her band the Summer Gold for a little Olympia twist on those familiar sounds.
