"Twisted Pine is the most exciting new roots band to emerge from the New England scene in quite some time. Their live show is already legendary for the band's unbridled spirit and contagious energy."
-JIM OLSEN, SIGNATURE SOUNDS RECORDINGS INC.
"I became a Twisted Pine fan watching them capture first prize at the Freshgrass Band Contest last year. This fivesome has it all great singing, great playing and a charismatic appeal that propels their take on bluegrass into the future while still being true to the music's roots."
-ALISON BROWN, COMPASS RECORDS
Twisted Pine is a wild and unpredictable bluegrass band delivering powerful vocal harmonies, hard-driving rhythms, and virtuosic musicianship. Based in Boston, the band is composed of Dan Bui on mandolin, Ricky Mier on banjo, Kathleen Parks on fiddle and vocals, Chris Sartori on bass, and Rachel Sumner on guitar and vocals.
The band formed while studying at Berklee College of Music. After realizing the incredible chemistry they had together the band secured a monthly residency at The Cantab Lounge where they honed their chops, repertoire, and group sound. Quickly becoming immersed in the vibrant Boston bluegrass community, Twisted Pine has performed with bluegrass luminaries such as Peter Rowan, Gibson Brothers, and has been showcased as Berklee College of Music's premier acoustic act. Twisted Pine has performed on the main stages of major festivals such as Greyfox Bluegrass Festival, Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Green River Festival, FreshGrass Festival, Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival, and more.
In 2014 they won both the FreshGrass and Thomas Point Beach Beach band competitions. Recently, the band received a grant from the Iguana Music Fund at Club Passim to record their debut full length album at Compass Records Studio. They were nominated for the 2015 IBMA Band Performance Momentum Award and tied for first place in the RockyGrass band competition. They are now in artist development at Signature Sounds.
Kellen Zakula is a Boston-based multi-instrumentalst and songwriter. He is a new voice emerging from Boston's urban acoustic landscape - with soaring melodies and refreshing writing backed up by killer musicians like Boston fixture Charlie Rose, Brittany Haas of Crooked still, and Brooklyn's Hannah Read.
