Four-piece folk-rock group Houndmouth has a soulful flair and an amazing layered sound that any listener could get into. Band members Katie Toupin, Matt Myers, Zak Appleby, and Shane Cody all like to sing - and they often sing together, layering vocals on top of heavy bass lines and skillful guitar riffs to create unique, toe-tapping songs.

Houndmouth, a four-piece band from just outside Louisville, Kentucky, may just be the perfect musical equivalent to a good home-cooked meal. Forget the frills and studio wizardry, this young group just sets out to have fun making music as a reflection of what they know. Their love of roots, rock and blues melts together as a rollicking good time on their debut From the Hills Below the City (Rough Trade). And what started a couple years ago as simply a group of friends making some noise together has developed into a band on the verge of an exciting career.

What’s not to like about Houndmouth? They’ve got it all - a little roots, a little rock, a little soul and some great songs.

A four piece folk-rock group with a soulful flare and an amazing layered sound, Houndmouth hails from Albany, Indiana.
