Often described as gritty “saloon jazz”, (or sometimes as Tom Waits in a cocktail dress) this duo from Bozeman, MT writes tales about shady characters, eccentric brothel clientele, or a scorned woman out for revenge. These stories are delivered with sultry female vocals reminiscent of a bygone era placed over a jazz guitar accompaniment. Consisting primarily of sultry vocalist Gillian Howe and the eclectic indie-jazz guitar work of Tyler Ryan Miller, Tumbledown House provides the soundtrack for raucous, prohibition-themed parties. Somewhere between the sights and sounds of Deadwood, SD and a 1920’s cabaret, Tumbledown House has created a modern speakeasy sound all their own.
