Family Band

Brookyln-based ambient-folk duo Family Band is an unlikely collaboration between visual artist turned frontwoman Kim Krans and her husband, former heavy-metal guitarist Jonny Ollsin. Together, the couple craft beautifully dark, folk-influenced songs, which they fittingly describe as “heavy mellow.”

Ollsin lends his guitar skills to the band, toning it down from his metal roots, and both spouses provide vocals to the lyrics written by Krans. The inspiration for the chilly, haunting songs off their latest album Grace & Lies, a follow-up to their 2010 debut album Miller Path, came from ghostly figures Krans saw near the couple’s cabin in upstate New York where they recorded the majority of the album.  The new album credits work from another Brooklyn ambient indie band with Grizzly Bear’s Dan Rossen providing production and instrumental work for the track "Again.”
