Kalispell is the moniker of Shane Leonard, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter living in Eau Claire, WI. Over the past few years he’s toured the UK opening for Jeff Tweedy, worked with Field Report, Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Paul Simon), The Stray Birds, Sara and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), Todd Sickafoose (Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird), Ben Sollee, Zachariah Hickman (Ray Lamontagne, Andrew Bird, Josh Ritter), Robbie Lackritz (Feist), MIT’s Balinese Gamelan, Berklee College Of Music’s Ensemble Robot, and taught music through the Exploration School at Yale University, Augusta Heritage Center, and other programs throughout the US. Kalispell’s sophomore album, Printer’s Son, will be released on June 3rd via Cartouche Records. Connecting an improvisational heart with meticulously constructed arteries of melody, it eschews the stomp-clap boom-chuck trends of indie-folk, instead giving nods to the entranced sonic tapestries of Phillip Glass and lyrical sophistication of Paul Simon.
Christopher Porterfield is an American songwriter, guitarist and singer. He currently leads the folk band Field Report. Porterfield previously played with DeYarmond Edison, a band led by Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon.
