King Columbia is a 5-piece stringband formed in the primordial sludge beneath the streets of Portland, OR. This supergroup of Post-Modern Folk consists of 5 singing multi-insrumental songsmen, with Lucas Biespiel on fiddle, Will St. John on dobro, Jack Maybe on upright bass, and Joseph Waya and Benny Gilbert sharing guitar, harmonica, and percussion. They are bursting with a raw harmonious energy and would love to entertain you.
Three For Silver runs off the friction of opposing forces. Thunderous bass and dreamy melody, baritone growl and smooth soprano, new music and timeworn style. The band creates a sound that is both wholly unique and yet familiar. If it's retro, no one has found its time period. If it's folk music, no one has found its country of origin."A tribute to the trials of the young and the aimless...something so catchy and effective that it leaves everything else in the dust."
