A Decent Animal

A Decent Animal


whether you call it neo-folk, atmospheric rock, or indie rock it still sounds great. This trio uses erie instrumentation, amazing vocal harmonies and heartfelt songwriting make beautiful melancholy music must that must be heard.


in 2005, A Decent Animal sprung from the ashes of the musical discontent of Richard Weld and Jonathan Nicholson. After sharpening their teeth as a duo at art shows, chapels and high society parties, ADA spent eight months
developing their craft before
recording their first cd in Charlotte, NC at Sioux Sioux studio. After an incredible and eyeopening studio
experience the band added drummer/keyboardist George Baerreis to the mix. With their 2006 cd release under their belt, A Decent Animal is playing shows that mesmorize
audiences with both an emotional musical experience and a visually stunning one. Their shows feed the senses.
A Decent Animal is atmospheric rock. It’s tinges of Pink Floyd and radiohead blended with alt country and a minor key. They play with great emotion, beauty and sadness. With uninhibited lyrics, subtle harmonies and haunting instrumentation, A Decent Animal wants to crawl inside your heart
just to have a look.
