Featherpocket's songs are a composite of sounds both new and old reverberating across the American landscape. The history of America shapes the songs - sounds from the backwoods of Appalachia, the lonesome blues of the delta, and the songs of our migrant ancestors all come together to form a unique sound as old as the country and as modern as the times.
"Featherpocket inspired the youngsters grouped in front of the stage to hop and bound in a pattern of movement that would result in a faceplant (and possibly blood), were a Yankee like me to attempt it. The strings – two guitars of varying voltage (Jason and Spencer Bloodworth), one bass (Cameron Gersh), and one banjo (Clint Lemonds) – came together like the perfect sandwich, four ingredients in perfect harmony. Featherpocket creates the sound of the mountains, towering rocks populated by trees, visited freely by breeze. See them if you can; they’ll make you feel at home." -Gwendolyn Lewis, Libro Musica, 2017
