Bark, Hide and Horn

Bark, Hide and Horn


Bark, Hide and Horn is a four-man folk-rock orchestra hailing from Portland, Oregon. Since their inception as a three-piece in summer of 2005, their line-up has shifted several times. With each incarnation, the boys have taken on more musical responsibilities. Andy Furgeson, lead singer and guitar player, managed to bang a suitcase-turned-kickdrum and control a drum machine with his feet. Brian Garvey learned to juggle a synth, keyboard, trumpet, mandolin, and homemade percussion kit. Read more on Last.fm
Bark, Hide and Horn is a four-man folk-rock orchestra hailing from Portland, Oregon. Since their inception as a three-piece in summer of 2005, their line-up has shifted several times. With each incarnation, the boys have taken on more musical responsibilities. Andy Furgeson, lead singer and guitar player, managed to bang a suitcase-turned-kickdrum and control a drum machine with his feet.

Brian Garvey learned to juggle a synth, keyboard, trumpet, mandolin, and homemade percussion kit. Peter Valois came along in winter of 2005, bringing his ability to leap mid-song from bass to vibraphone to percussion, not to mention his indispensable recording know-how. Only months ago Dusty Dybvig joined the ranks on drums, freeing the rest of the band to focus on their primary instruments and bringing a previously impossible rhythmic intensity to the whole outfit. The boys create a full, dynamic sound that, within any song, can shift from soft, haunted folk to loud, raucous blues, with hints of indie-rock, country, gospel, and mariachi escaping in between.

The songs are carefully crafted and arranged. Many are like short stories, with characters lifted from the pages of old National Geographic magazines. Their world is populated by rebellious insects, love-lorn tree snails, enraged grizzly bears, and the naturalists who love them. From these unusual perspectives, the classic themes of American music are given new life.
