Biography

Part American Cabaret, part Gothicana, Ashcan Orchid weaves ambient tapestries of melody and folklore. At times melancholic, other times manic, always lush and deeply textured portraits of murder, longing, and l’amour. The Sextet deftly sweeps you from debaucherous reverie to fiendish nightmares, from lycanthropic love songs to the edge of madness. The vocals frolic and swoon while the banjo gently plucks along like a Louisiana swamp boat. Saxophones moan out a sympathetic funeral dirge while the saw weeps mournfully. Accordions and Guitars flicker and spark like a gypsy campfire in time with an iconoclast rhythm. Cantillating scandalous hymns of carnage and lament; brutal, honest and timelessly out of time come the sordid tales of Ashcan Orchid.
