Biography

Meticulously constructed vocals, lush fingerstyle guitar, scattered percussion, and a haunting, ethereal, female voice intersected and wove through the D.C./Baltimore-based “dream folk-rock” group formerly known as Kindlewood. The independent trio was fronted by Kelci Smith and backed by Galen Smith and Jamison Lyman. The group’s debut full length release, “Desiderium,” was nominated for Best Contemporary Folk Recording of 2011 by the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA). It also set the group off on an unforgettable journey across the US. From house shows, to weddings, to clubs, to a performance in the park with ONE (http://goo.gl/eFBEqT), Kindlewood’s sound has washed over and been accepted by a remarkably diverse audience.

The acceptance and excitement surrounding Kindlewood is perhaps best represented by their fans. Because of them, Kindlewood nabbed a nomination for D.C./Baltimore’s Best Emerging Band of 2013 in The Deli Magazine. Those same fans also enabled Kindlewood to rise above a debilitating smash and grab burglary during their 2011 tour. In fact, so much support poured in that within 48 hours of the burglary the group was able to restock all equipment necessary to continue the tour. Support was also shown elsewhere. Paste Magazine featured one of their music videos (http://goo.gl/sUwTXQ), several music blogs shared their music and wrote favorable reviews, and they were even interviewed on NPR’s The Signal (http://goo.gl/P1e8Ni) for the Annual Baltimore Folk Fest.
