Little Jane & The Pistol Whips

Little Jane & The Pistol Whips


Blending traditional county with Americana to make a unique acoustic based music that appeals to all audiences of all ages.


Little Jane & The Pistol Whips formed in the fall of 2008 in Livingston, Montana. Ashly Holland (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion) was writing songs and playing solo gigs in the Bozeman area when she met up with Marcus Engstrom (guitar, resophonic guitar) and Jody Engstrom (guitar, mandolin). They began playing around the local scene looking for steady gigs when they asked Russ Smith (bass) to round out their sound. Led by the powerful songwriting of Ashly they stylized their sound after early county (Loretta Lynn) and contemporary Americana (Gillian Welch) and soon found a following. They continue to pull in old songs, originals to form their unique style of Americana music.


Their first EP, "Room to Roam" was released in April of 2009.
