The Cannondolls – Bio, Info & Show Lineup

Describing their first collaboration Willyard says the co-writing process, “while cathartic, is not always easy,” but adds that she and Cannon come out on the other side with songs that parse the human condition with songwriting that is consistently fresh and relevant, often darkly humorous, yet disarmingly relatable. “We put each lyric to the Isbell test,” says Cannon. “When a line or idea is in question, we won’t settle if we’d be too embarrassed for him to hear it.”

Known for intricate harmonies akin to those of First Aid Kit, their eclectic sound draws in audiences and spits out fans. The duo added fiddle player Alissa Wolf in 2015 and often features guest musicians for special shows/venues. The not-to-be-missed live performances might treat fans to impromptu giveaways of handmade jewelry crafted from spent bullet casings, a batch of freshly baked cookies, or a knitted cozy for your coffee cup, offering glimpses into the quirky vulnerability and humor inherent in the band’s optimistic and refreshing musical process.
