Gerygone & Twig

Gerygone & Twig


Born of steel strings and the great expectations, Gerygone & Twig is a four piece band from the Mat-Su Valley, Alaska. With songs like seawater and windmills accompanied by harmonies that could solve 1000 piece jig-saw puzzles, they combine their art with their words and eclectic instrumentation.


Gerygone & Twig(don't worry, we can't pronounce it either) is a troupe of folk and indie songwriters stationed in the Mat-Su Valley. Their music is a most commendable brew of jangling silverware, twanging banjos, & rosy voices blooming from soft mandolins and guitars. They'll tell you most winsome love stories in fields of yellow where all the depths of lyric blue and wisdom shall be reached. With songs inspired dearly by Grizzly Bear, Sufjan Stevens, the Lumineers, and Laura Marling, the band is made up four people who each bring their own important qualities to light. All are delightful vocalists, one a professional photographer, another a painter and graphic designer. The percussionist makes beats from wounded vintage records, and the bassist started making music on his gameboy when he was young.
The foursome have filled the rafters of many coffee crafting facilities around the Valley after getting started as performers in August 2012. When they perform, various costumery adorn their bodies and environment, starting with birds stationed in their hair and sometimes sprouting enormous flowers from their spines. After successfully doubling their recent Kickstarter project fundraising goal to pay for the packaging, they have finished recording their debut album entitled the Slee-Py, which will be released on Friday, April 5th with a festive and celebratory show in the evening. The group plans to flourish with their music together for years to come.
