A local band called “Death Folk” who has been playing music throughout Door County the last six years, are releasing their first album. Jessica Holland and Nick Hoover make up the duet that blends a variety of music genres like folk music, rap, soul, and classic country to produce their own sound. Holland shares what will be on the new album.
Hoover says the new album should broaden their appeal.
The new album with original music is being produced right now at Painted Recordings in Sturgeon Bay. The unusual band name “Death Folk” came from joking about the joy in murder ballets, but did not play death metal, but rather death folk music, according to Holland and Hoover. You can watch the video of Death Folk performing their original song “Light” in studio below:
