Keep Your Fork, There's Pie is a Portland-born sextet of multi-
instrumentalists who write and play original music, and also happen to be
pretty good friends. The unusual name (What?! A comma AND an apostrophe?!)
is born of a philosophy: The best is yet to come. This buoyant energy is
evident in the music and can overtake you at a live show.
The music is hard to describe but easy to listen to; influences
range from The Roches to Wilco, Belle and Sebastian to Neil Young, and M.
Ward to MF doom. With six members each singing and playing multiple in-
struments the sound calls to mind early blues, r&b, folk, soul, swing, gypsy
music and more - but with enough pop thrown in to make it fun to listen to.
KYFTP do not take themselves too seriously. Live shows are a smile-inducing, toe-tapping im-
mersion in what we refer to as a Forkestral sound. You may want to literally keep your fork, be-
cause more often than not, there will be pie sharing at intermission. KYFTP has been filling Port-
landers with pie and hope at acoustic venues such as Mississippi Studios, Produce Row, The Woods,
and Mississippi Pizza for 5 years now, while never passing up the opportunity to play unorthodox
venues such as Theatre! Theatre! or the NE Portland Sunday Parkways event.
