Kitchen Dwellers formed three years ago below the Bridger Mountains with the sizzle of afternoon breakfast and the warmth of Irish coffee brewing in the kitchen. What began as a trio, Shawn Swain, Joe Funk, and Kyle Shelstad began writing music and playing traditionals searching for originality and occasionally, other life forms. Torrin Daniels was quickly added on Banjo and the band began playing shows around Bozeman, Montana. They added Jesse Bulter on fiddle just in time to hit the road for Colorado and complete their sound. The Kitchen Dwellers have shared the stage with high profile artists like Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, the Deadly Gentlemen, Head for the Hills , Town Mountain, Pete Kartsounes, and WhiteWater Ramble.
The band has played many high profile venues in the west such as The Bluebird Theater, The Mishawaka Amphitheater, The Oriental Theater, and The Emerson Theater. They continue to master their sound, create original work, and foster their live performances.
Owl & Crow
Pappy and JP Biondo. Cousins born only two months apart in the summer of 1986. Even growing up hundreds of miles away, they found a way to join forces around 2005. It was then Pappy moved from his home in Cleveland OH, to join JP in Gouldsborro, PA. There they helped form the successful experimental folk/grass band Cabinet. Helping propel that band for over 10 years they decided to get back to the duo that they started as. Honesty is the destination. Acoustic music and blood harmonies are the vessels.
