Kitchen Dwellers Releases Latest Studio Effort

Article Contributed by Crown Jül PR | Published on Saturday, November 9, 2019

Kitchen Dwellers are pleased to share the latest edition to their catalog, Muir Maid, which was completely fan-funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign. Produced by Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters, Muir Maid is the first record where all four members contributed to the songwriting collaboratively, citing diverse musical influences from Metallica, classical and jazz music to Bela Fleck and beyond.

The album is available now:

Muir Maid Track Listing:
1. Shadows
2. Broken Cage

4. Muir Maid
5. The Living Dread
6. Hell To Sunday
7. Phaedrus
8. The Quail

10. Covered Bridged

"Muir Maid is the product of spending the last few years on the road honing in our sound," shares the band of the new release. "There are tales of adventure, personal growth, and commentary on what it's like to live life on the road."

With Pandolfi's direction, Kitchen Dwellers—comprised of guitarist Max Davies, bassist Joe Funk, banjoist Torrin Daniels and mandolinist Shawn Swain—were able to channel their eclectic stylistic influences into a recorded encapsulation of their live performances. "Chris isn’t the kind of guy who steers the ship,” says Davies of the collaboration with Pandolfi for this release. “He’s the kind of guy who helps guide you to a place you didn’t even know you wanted to go. He has this way of getting you to bear down and dig deeper than you ever realized you could.”
