Doug Arney and Olie Eshleman began playing guitars together in 2003. In 2008, Kieran Harrison-Buhlinger joined them.
Corespondents' guitar-based musical stylings incorporate non-western instrumentaion such as the Vietnamese dan-bao and the Greek bouzouki, while still appealing to metal heads, noisers, guitar-wankers, audiophiles, tech-heads, swingers and the blues.
Corespondents has also been featured in Lynn Shelton's indie film, "We Go Way Back" as well as in MTV.com's web series, "$5 Cover: Seattle"
“Olie Eshleman, Doug Arney, and Kieran Harrison-Buhlinger are acutely sensitive players with fantastic chops, and their music efficiently transports you to a more antique-y place and time without sounding overly reverent or staid. Corespondents have that old-soul spirit in spades, but without the kitsch, thankfully.”
-Dave Segal, The Stranger
"Experimental, without a genre music on the musical mystery tramp side, Corespondents organically chop up Italian cowboy soundtrack guitar playing, circus rhythms, and woozy ragtime to make perfect night music for absinthe-sipping poets and whiskey-slurping marginals."
