Sturgeon Bay duo Deathfolk is made up of Jess Holland and Nick Hoover. Initially brought together by their mutual love of sad songs and murder ballads, Holland and Hoover’s collaboration plumbs those “deathfolk” roots as well as striking out into the territory of thoughtful Americana music. Deathfolk’s compelling songs — featuring banjo, acoustic and electric guitar, and impossibly tight harmonies — explore themes of love, loss, and a deep appreciation of the natural world. The duo recently completed work on their self-titled debut album, financed in part by a successful crowdfunding campaign.
