 with warm smiles and honest simplicity, tina & her pony bring a unique sound to the american folk tradition, featuring original songs that echo the sound of appalachia, while creating new waves with radical, queer lyrics, uncommon instrumentation and vocals tighter than your mamas’ brazier. tina & her pony formed in asheville, n.c. in 2009 following the chance meeting of tina collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and quetzal jordan (cello, guitar, vocals). collins and jordan spent the last two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of taos, new mexico, making music and friends, and becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts. tina and her pony released their full length, self-titled debut album in march 2012. the album was mixed and mastered in oakland, calif. with myles boisen (the tigerlilies; kronos quartet) and features trumpeter chris grady (also featured on tom waits’ grammy award winning album mule variations), along with piano, dobro, lap steel, mandolin, upright bass and a bass skin drum. (now available on: itunes and amazon) in addition, the group released its six-track ep “walkin’ in my sleep” in march 2012. the sound on the ep has a playful, low-fi quality that highlights collins’ and jordan´s magnetic synergy as a standalone duo. both albums are now available for download on itunes and amazon.
