Colorado based Foxfeather has been taking the Boulder area by storm since the official formation of the band in 2013. Beginning with a folky, singer-songwriter base, and bolstered by amazing instrumentals and vocals, Foxfeather’s unique sound captivates nearly any audience group. Versatility is the name of the game for founders Laura Paige Stratton and Carly Ricks Smith, with shows varying from intimate duo settings to full band rock shows. The band features Boulder musicians Patrick Coleman (stand up bass), Ben Batchelor (drums and percussion), and Dave Brown (mandolin and electric guitar), who help to create Foxfeather’s sound as an amalgamation of each member’s inspiration and taste. Folk, blues, bluegrass, jazz, and pop all make appearances within any given song set or recording. Though these styles may seem varied, Foxfeather’s seamless transition from one to the next creates an environment in which the audience hears and feels the connection between, and historical influence of, all genres in all music.
