Influenced by the emotional roots of country, the confessional poetry of folk, and the spatial freedom of ambient and harmonic tones, Ponybird is the solo project of Jennifer Dauphinais, an evolving artist who translates her vision of the world into song and sound. Listening to Ponybird, puts the audience on the verge of discovering something both introspective and infinite all at once.
In her song-writing, Dauphinais references classic performers such as Bruce Springsteen, Velvet Underground, and Kate Bush, and composes with the flavor of Bon Iver, Phosphorescent, and Chris Pureka.
Dauphinais is known for performing with folk diva, Christina Abbott in their duo, The Karner Blues, as well as heavy rock bands, Belle Starr, The Editors, and Spider & Fly. Dauphinais also wrote for the New Haven Advocate entertainment section, and hosted a radio show on WYBC 1340 AM with co-host Craig Gilbert. As Daylight Photography, she is best known for capturing bands behind the lens (see Crooked Hook's album cover Captain Will Be Your Guide ) and continues to ghost write for local venues, labels, and independent bands.
