Biography

Tumbledown House is a songwriting duo from Bozeman, Montana. Often described as gritty saloon jazz, parlor music inflicted with the unspeakable, or Tom Waits in a cocktail dress, Tumbledown House writes stories that may revolve around shady characters down on their luck, brothels with an eccentric clientele, or a scorned woman out for revenge. These stories are delivered with sultry female vocals reminiscent of a bygone era and placed over rain-soaked indie jazz accompaniment.

In 2008, Tumbledown House won the 4th annual Singer and Songwriter competition held in Livingston, Montana. Thirty-six contestants from all across the state competed for the first prize of $600 worth of recording time at Peak Recording in Bozeman. After winning the competition, the duo began recording their self-titled debut album, which will be released in the summer of ’09. Tumbledown House has opened for such notable acts as The Dodos, The Devil Makes Three, and Laura Gibson, and continues to play shows in the Northwest.

In the fall of 2009, Tumbledown House will embark on a full U.S. tour to promote their debut album. The duo has developed a truly unique stage show, incorporating live percussion loops using a variety of junkyard materials to create a big sound to layer their intricate songs over.
