Natives of the Madison area, Kyle and Cory have been playing in various projects throughout the past decade. Their latest work with Emerald Grove, taking the form of an acoustic duo, draws influences from folk, indie, and rock backgrounds, to form a unique timbre, lavish with vocal harmonies.
The style of the resulting music has been compared to that of Dawes, Counting Crows, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Emerald Grove continually strives to create earnest compositions, capturing the essence of their music and message.
Emerald Grove includes:
Kyle Smith: Guitar, Banjo, Vocals, Harmonica, Stomp-percussion
Cory Mandt: Guitar, Banjo, Vocals
