About Calico the Band
CALICO the band hails from Los Angeles, California where three wayfaring strangers made their first acquaintance in the rugged canyon valley. Kirsten Proffit, Manda Mosher, and Aubrey Richmond combine influences of old, threaded with the sounds of California Country. A blend of three part female harmony set to the backdrop of acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, resonator, and vibey electrics. Formed in 2012, CALICO the band is a singer/songwriter super group who's extensive touring earned them National Touring Artist Of The Year from the Los Angeles Music Awards in 2013. They're scheduled to perform at this year's STAGECOACH Festival 2014.
"Beautiful Lie", the opening track from their self titled debut album was featured in a recent episode of ABC's hit TV show Nashville and "Never Really Gone" is set to appear in NBC's upcoming show The Night Shift. CALICO the band is known for bringing down the house with their electrifying live shows. "Jaw dropping " - Neil Portnow (Pres & CEO, The GRAMMYS). "What could be better than not one, not two but three supremely talented songwriters-vocalists-instrumentalists? Calico is a band to be reckoned with on the L.A. scene." - Chris Morris (Watusi Rodeo, Variety).
Officially representing the GRETSCH Roots Collection of instruments, CALICO the band's original material pays homage to the rich musical legacy of artists such as Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Fleetwood Mac. www.CALICOtheband.com
