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

What's New! (updated 2/28/24)

We're back!  We've been in raising-a-couple-a-babies-land for the last three years, and are starting to emerge from the blissful brainfog of raising kids - and starting to make music again.  

We have some gigs on the horizon, and a new project that we're excited to launch in April – stay tuned for more info!


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).
