Album Notes
The corridors that link Wyoming’s grand landscapes are a fitting backdrop to the escapades of Jackson Hole-based Screen Door Porch—a sound that evokes open space, dramatic textures, and a genuine character that steeps within your psyche. The Americana/Alt-Country/Folk-Blues/Rock quartet thrives with a no-boundaries approach to song craft, female/male vocal harmonies, and a range of instrumentation—acoustic & electric guitars, banjo, mandolin, kazoogle, harmonica, bass, and drums.

The core singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist duo of South-to-West transplants—Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis—have once again covered the spectrum of lush roots-rock to stripped-down acoustic arrangements on Screen Door Porch’s sophomore gem, The Fate & The Fruit (2012). Both infectiously grooving and intuitively intelligent, the eclectic album delves into subjects of life’s adversities and triumphs, taking chances and getting knocked down, yet decidedly resilient amongst the fray.

The Fate & The Fruit currently hovers at #21 on the Euro-Americana Chart, and reached #29 on the Roots Music Report Roots-Rock Chart not far behind Bonnie Raitt and Tom Waits. The album has already earned praise from No Depression, The Alternate Root, Rootstime, The Mad Mackerel, and 8 of 10 stars at Americana UK, which had this to say:

“[Rose & Davis] swap lead vocals to suit the song and songwriter, a sort of Lennon/McCartney arrangement and get it right every time: heartfelt yes, earthy certainly, but never languid. 'Burnin' At Both Ends' and 'Shift Work' show both our heroes at their most gritty. The reality is that Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis go together like bacon and eggs. This is the sound of America, untamed and infinite.”

The Fate & The Fruit is a follow up to 2010’s debut LP, Screen Door Porch (2010), which was recognized in five BEST-OF lists: Roots Music Reports Top 100 Albums, NPR’s Best of Wyoming, Tupelo Honey’s Top 20 Americana, Twangville’s Top 100, and American Roots UK, Editor's Top 25. The album also climbed to #16 on the Roots Music Report Folk Chart alongside Bob Dylan, and the songwriting combo of Rose and Davis was lauded by The Austin Chronicle as “a combination that goes down as smoothly as top-shelf bourbon.” Maverick Magazine made a connection that “Rose’s vocals have the languid drawl of Lucinda Williams, while Davis sounds like Whiskeytown-era Ryan Adams.”

Both albums were recorded at Ramble Creek Studio in Austin, Texas with co-producer Britton Beisenherz and feature the elements that have subtlety taken the project from a jam on the porch to a band with a grassroots following. Screen Door Porch recently scored Silver in Jackson Hole Weekly’s 2012 Best of JH Reader’s poll for Best Band Playing Original Music, and Bronze for Best Album Release.

The best Americana-Soul/Alt-Country/Folk-Blues/Rock record you will ever listen
Take a little piece of the West home with you! "The Fate & The Fruit" is the follow-up album to Screen Door Porch's self-titled debut album (which is also amazing and everyone should buy it too!) and it does not disappoint! Seadar's soulful voice is like warm sausage gravy on your homemade buttery biscuits and Aaron's banjo and guitar skills will make you want to put on your dancin' boots and sip on some fine Kentucky Bourbon! I particularly like the band's use of the Kazoogle. Definitely an album worth purchasing and if you're ever in Jackson Hole they put on an A-MAZING live show to boot!
