Biography

crooked tree tread a path out of the nation’s capitol on the boughs of songwriting talents Jason Byrd and Dave English. The two veterans of the east and west coast roots scenes, respectively, share lead vocal duties with Andrea Yarnell, a fixture on the Northern Virginia blues circuit with the pipes to prove it. This vocal trio meanders from the laconic imagery of Byrd, to the pop-inspired melodies of English, to the soul-drenched gospel of Yarnell, peaking with 3-part harmonies that conjure the hollows of the nearby Shenandoah Mountains. Wes Christenson, jamband and rock circuit veteran, holds down the low end while James Hayden grounds the crew with the honest grooves he honed with area mainstays One-Horse Town.
