The Small Sounds is a collective of friends playing music that has folk, rock, alt-country, and retro-pop styles. The influences are diverse - Cash, Caribou, Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Leadbelly, Pinback, Stereolab, Great Lake Swimmers, and anything and everything in between. Put that in a meat grinder and out comes, strangely, alot of fender rhodes, pedal steel, and harmonies. The geographic backgrounds vary as well -- Houston (of course), Los Angeles, Denver, Austin, New Orleans, Memphis. This basically means we agree on nothing, but it usually works out well in the end.
