Mouths of Babes
With more than a dozen albums and over a thousand shows between them, Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth of Mouths of Babes are no strangers to the alternative folk music scene. For years, their respective bands Girlyman and Coyote Grace captivated thousands of loyal fans as they criss-crossed the country, rocked festival main stages, and toured with the likes of the Indigo Girls and Dar Williams. Now, as Mouths of Babes, Ty and Ingrid have distilled the very best of the songwriting, humor, and musicianship of their previous groups into a new power duo that brings more style and depth than ever before.

Mouths of Babes recorded their highly anticipated first full-length album, Brighter In the Dark at Prairie Sun Studios in northern California earlier this summer on the strength of a wildly successful, 800-backer, $56,000 Kickstarter campaign. Slated for a late January 2017 release, the self-produced album contains twelve original songs with contrasting themes of light and dark, tragedy and comedy. Mixed by Stewart Lerman (Dar Williams, Bob Dylan), Brighter features guest appearances from Birds of Chicago, Tania Elizabeth (The Avett Brothers), Mai Bloomfield (Jason Mraz) and others.

The key to the Mouths of Babes magic is in the contrast. Ty makes a quiet impression as a gifted lyricist, talented multi-instrumentalist, and magnetic presence onstage. Relix Magazine writes, “The poignant honesty that Ty brings to [her] tunes gives them an emotional intensity that’s as bracing as it is moving.” Ingrid, a natural performer, easily commands audiences with her larger-than-life sassiness and professional dancer’s grace. Curve Magazine writes, “The fiery redheaded bassist is the unabashed, unapologetic woman who isn’t afraid to yell it all from the rooftops.” The two women easily switch off lead vocals and play a wide array of instruments, with Ty on acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, and foot percussion, and Ingrid playing upright bass, ukulele, and cajon.

“If I was forced to categorize it, I’d call it modern folk. It’s powerful, romantic, and giddy. And the two are insanely infectious together onstage, like a musical and a personal love fest all at once.”
