Americana/Roots Rock/Country Blues
Screen Door Porch delivers a Wyoming-grown fusion of soulful Americana, Roots-Rock and Country-Blues that has been likened to “Gillian Welch meets The Band, with Ryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt hanging out backstage” (605 Magazine). Grooving, electrified porch music, that is. The core female/male singer-songwriter pair of Seadar Rose & Aaron Davis thrive in a space that houses rustic harmonies, a diverse bag of acoustic & electric instrumentation, and “a sort of Lennon/McCartney arrangement and get it right every time” (Americana UK). Screen Door Porch was featured in a Sunday edition of the New York Times for their “entrepreneurial gumption” in founding the WYOmericana Caravan Tour, while Paste Magazine named them one of Wyoming's Top Bands, “an impressive musical discovery."
Part of Screen Door Porch’s MO has always been a breadth of acoustic and electric instrumentation for just four people—acoustic/electric/slide guitars, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and kazoogle reinforced by the emphatic rhythm section of fretless bassist Tom Davidson and drummer/harmony vocalist Andy Peterson. This range allows for an infectious swagger of gritty, slide induced blues-rock to sultry indie-folk, evidenced on the band’s third studio LP, Modern Settler (2015).
The first two Screen Door Porch albums—Screen Door Porch (2010) and The Fate & The Fruit (2012)—were internationally recognized in eight “Best Albums of the Year” lists while hovering in the Top 25 of the Euro-Americana Chart and Top 30 of the Roots Music Report Roots-Rock Chart. In past few years, the band has been fortunate to embrace the regional festival scene while also sharing bills with some of their favorite artists—Buddy Guy, Sam Bush, Steve Earle, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Justin Townes Earle, and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals.
“Screen Door Porch lends an easy Western flair to their more prominent native influences of North Carolina and Kentucky, a combination that goes down as smoothly as top-shelf bourbon.” (Austin Chronicle)
