Who We Are

soaring fiddle melodies, punchy guitars, howl at the moon baritone vocals, supported by a rhythm section that is equal parts groove and vibe - that's the common thread. our sound is best described as a colorful crockpot of blues, electric americana, alt-country and funk.

we are PNW proud, born in olympia. at a common thread show you can expect a healthy dose of original compositions, with songs that explore universal emotions such as awkward goodbyes, second chances, redemption, love, loss and enough songs about travel and exploration to make you want to pack up and go.

band members:

casey meehan - vox, guitar
jim farley - bass
damian nelson - fiddle
stephanie layton - drums


our motivation is to provide our listeners with an opportunity to come together, to set aside differences and unite around the love of live music
