Gambling. Murder. Booze. Bicycles……
The music of Tumbledown House has been described as “gritty saloon jazz”, “modern speakeasy music”, and “Tom Waits in a cocktail dress”. Sultry vocalist Gillian Howe and the eclectic indie-jazz guitar work of Tyler Ryan Miller are Tumbledown House. Their music could provide the soundtrack for raucous, prohibition-themed parties and has “quickly ascended as one of the new, promising acts of the Rocky Mountain region” (Pop Rocket Press). I got to see their premiere showcase at Folk Alliance – I guarantee a rollicking fun time!
Tumbledown House has a brand new release (their second) called “Fables and Falsehoods”. The new album explores diverse subject matter (one song is based on the original story of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi in 1883, another describes the only consecrated shrine dedicated to unrepentant sinners, which still stands in Tucson, Arizona) and showcases the duo’s talent for creating something vintage and familiar, yet refreshing, distinct, and exciting.
