“...it’s how the band makes you feel. Their music is comfort food” 

 - Gordon Nash, Wise Madness 


The Early Risers are a folk duo from Vermont made up of Ashley Storrow and Putnam Smith. Both rootsy and lyric-driven, their original songs feature close vocal harmonies and arrangements on a wide array of instruments: banjo, guitar, mandolin, piano, and shruti-box. Their debut album, “Making Life Sweet” went to #1 on the national Folk DJ Charts (November, 2019).
