ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We are the Giraffes! Born on a steamy summer night in Portland, OR in 2011, The Giraffe Dodgers came together with the goal to progress the acoustic music we all know and love into a hybrid of bluegrass, funk, jazz and folk. Mandolin player Ben Larsen and guitarist Austin Moore began playing music together in 2006. Over the past few years they have grown together musically in a number of settings culminating with the Giraffes, their most recent project. Bass wizard Rowan Cobb expressed interest in working with the two early in 2011 and after a few exciting jams, drums were on the mind. Drummer Forest Carter, known for his tasty fills and impecable good looks was the obvious first choice, thus the Giraffe Dodgers were born.

The Giraffe Dodgers focus on instrumental newgrass (a term coined by Sam Bush and Bela Fleck in the Newgrass Revival), the song writing of Ben Larsen, and the instrumental composition of Austin Moore. They also play a range of covers from the likes of Paul Simon to traditional melodies arranged for an electric style band. The Giraffe Dodgers are sure to get your feet moving, your heart warming and your face smiling!
