Animals of Grace is an alt-folk duo based in Seattle led by innovative 12-string guitar player and classically trained vocalist Erika Lundahl. Together with percussionist Doug Indrick, Animals of Grace craft a musical experience that readily shifts from driving exhilaration to sublime and emotional. The duo formed in upstate New York in 2012 and moved to the tall trees of the Pacific Northwest in late 2013. They’ve played all over Seattle, at venues like the Royal Room, the High Dive, and the Rendezvous, as well as many festivals, including the Seattle Acoustic Music Festival, The San Juan Music Festival, The Vashon Strawberry Festival and the Arts in Nature Festival.
Their debut album, Songs of Shattering (Rolling Crone Records, 2015), features the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay, an early 20th century lyrical poet. The album made it’s debut onto CMJ’s top 200 albums of college radio in March 2016. Brambles is a 7 song EP, featuring all original poetry, floating harmonies, violin by Julie Cuic, driving cajon, and Lundahl’s signature finger tapping on her 12-string guitar.
