Since forming in 2010, California-based Dead Winter Carpenters has gained a reputation for steadfast touring, heartfelt performances, and authentic Americana. Portland Metronome puts the quintet “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”
That progressive nature shines through in the band’s latest album, Washoe (February 26). A 12-song collection of original songs by Dead Winter Carpenter members, Washoe’s diverse track list pays tribute to diverse musical influences including classic rock, bluegrass, alt-country, and rockabilly. Highlight tracks include “Midnight Ghost,” “Love Amongst Thieves,” and “Winning Hand,” and the angst-tinged duet, “If I Wrote You A Song.”
2015 looks to be an exciting year for MerryGold. After recording their latest

album “Hangtown” at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios in late 2014, the band also

completed their first international tour – 23 shows in Germany.

MerryGold began as the songwriting duo of Jillian Secor (guitar, vocals) and Alex

Stephens (guitar, mandolin, vocals). MerryGold’s 6-piece lineup currently

includes fiddle, bass, banjo, and accordion.

Based in the small northern California town of Placerville, themes of the Gold

Country are abundant in their music. Their whiskey-soaked folk/bluegrass

songs take listeners back to simpler times and portray a rawness that embodies

the pioneer spirit of the Wild West. While traditional folk and bluegrass elements

are apparent in their music, MerryGold incorporates a wide variety of influences

to create their own sound.

In 2012, MerryGold won the Race to TRI Studios contest. The studio - owned

and operated by Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead - selected MerryGold as top-10

finalists out of over 500 entries. The public then voted MerryGold and their song

“Sweet Lilly” as the winner. In December of 2012, the band recorded audio and

video at TRI Studios:
