unfailingly sturdy and openhearted songs, rock-energized bluegrass propulsion with a soulful, Humble Undertone
In The Kitchen got their start in a steamy kitchen of a second-story apartment in Rosendale, New York. It was a warm midsummer evening and the boys started plucking sweet sounds as chicken, potatoes, and green beans sizzled in the oven. You might say that meal defined the band's sound, simple and satisfying. In The Kitchen plays a mix of Americana music. Hints of bluegrass, country, and soul pepper their songwriting. Their live sets move through a range of emotion, with plenty of dance-able driving tunes, balanced by slower grooves with earnest lyrics and singing.
