Big Sound Harbor:
Every show with Dulci Ellenberger is sure to contain high-caliber musicianship, genuine, dedicated performance, and a truly unique experience you’ll want to revisit time and again. A highly trained vocalist with roots-inspired, high-energy and soulful originals, Dulci can be found singing and playing guitar regionally/nationally with powerhouse rock band, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, and locally with Asheville favorites Sweet Claudette and The Moon and You. Recently, various members of these projects combined to create an outfit for Dulci’s debut solo album: I Can Feel It (July ’15) called Big Sound Harbor. Each band has its own unique sound, ranging from folk to Motown and soul, with one common component: the star-power of Dulci.
Tina & Her Pony met in Asheville, N.C. in 2009. Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals) spent two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, New Mexico, making music and friends, and becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts.
“I was totally enchanted by the seemingly paradoxical combination of roots-as-old-as-the-hills sounding music, and yet fresh as the day after tomorrow vibe and sensibility, all presented with exquisite musicianship and sensitivity”
– Don Richmond
After an 18 month tour spanning the entire United States and Canada, they relocated to Asheville. Tina and Her Pony released their full length, self-titled debut album in March 2012. The album was mixed and mastered in Oakland, Calif. with Myles Boise (The Tigerlilies; Kronos Quartet) and features trumpeter Chris Grady (also featured on Tom Waits’ Mule Variations).
In addition, the group released its six-track EP “Walkin’ in My Sleep” in March 2012. The sound on the EP has a playful, low-fi quality that highlights Collins’ and Jordan ́s magnetic synergy as a standalone duo. Both albums are now available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
