Horse Feathers Details

Timbre Concerts Presents
Horse Feathers

The Portland, OR-based group Horse Feathers, is led by singer-songwriter Justin Ringle and longtime collaborator, violinist Nathan Crockett, backed by Dustin Dybvig, Justin Power, Lauren Vidal, and Brad Parson. They are celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a 4 Cassette box release (4/14) and the forthcoming release of their 5th studio record (10/14)

Horse Feathers’ most recent release, Cynic’s New Year, topped the Billboard Folk Chart at #23 and the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #29. Broadening the group’s sonic palette to include 11 musicians playing instruments including drums, French horn, piano, bells, upright bass and banjo, the record was praised by Pitchfork for its “flourishes of piano, reeds, banjo, and horns…all of which are gracefully absorbed into the band’s signature sound” while USA Today hailed it as “a delight from start to finish” and the Utne Reader called it “ornate and lyrically haunting.”

Horse Feathers was formed after Justin Ringle moved to Portland in 2004. Having played with rock bands in his native Idaho, Ringle found himself drawn to a softer, more folk-based sound in the Pacific Northwest and began combining stark lyrics (he cites Cormac McCarthy as an influence) with subtle acoustic arrangements.
