A songwriter-extraordinaire, Hollis Peach, showcases a creative powerhouse of harmony and lyrics. Drawing from diverse influences ranging from John Hartford, Joanna Newsom, Pete Seeger, Jim Henson, and Townes Van Zandt. Daniel Sherrill and Jacqueline Aubert weave evocative, mischievous and deeply personal stories in the American vernacular of song and story. Daniel has been performing (guitar & banjo) with world-renowned theatre company Oregon Shakespeare Festival, in their production of OKLAHOMA! Which has gotten reviews in the New York Times, PBS NEWS HOUR, NPR’s Here & Now etc...After theatre season they will be touring in promotion of their second release, “Sun Sits Low”, with crowd favorites Yukon River and St. Jude's Fire.
Though deceptively simple, their musical arrangements and harmonies are lush, intricate, and often hypnotic in their elegance. Kenneth Pattengale, of the Grammy-nominated The Milk Carton Kids, describes Dan as, “…a monster guitar player.” And this is true, as Dan’s phrasing comes out in the cleverest and subtlest of ways. When all is said and done, Hollis Peach’s music is a powerhouse of subtle gestures and graceful storytelling.
***They've also started a songwriting/performing movement called the Ashland Folk Collective (www.ashlandfolkcollective.com). As founders of the Collective they've performed and produced with/for Shook Twins, Rainbow Girls, John Craigie, Max Gomez, Sean Rowe, John Stickley, Anna Tivel...and more.

"...an evocative prog-folk duo now based in Oregon that name-drops an obscure Rust Belt bakery from a long-ago drizzly Easter morning of your youth."
M. Scutari, Henry Miller Library
"...the first record is still some of the stuff that I love the most out of everything I’ve ever done"
