Launched in the drizzly climes of Portland, Oregon by smoky-toned singer Gillian Wolfe and producer, guitarist and harmony vocalist Tyler Ryan Miller, Tumbledown House has thrived since relocating to the Bay Area in 2012, honing a sinewy, speakeasy sound with some of the region’s finest musicians. Focusing on beautifully crafted original songs, the band balances spacious, loose-limbed arrangements with precisely calibrated dynamics and tightly coiled energy. Featuring Zac Johnson on clarinet, bass clarinet, and trombone, bassist Tommy O’Mahony, and John Brothers Piano Company’s Jimi Marks on drums and Arlo Perlstein on trumpet and piano, Tumbledown House brings together instrumentation that evokes the small combos of the swing era, while delivering songs that feel as if they were composed the day after tomorrow.
