Lois and the Lantern was formed in 2014, the happy result of a monthly women’s musical gathering lovingly entitled “Clam Jam.” The band is made up of 4 members: Saja Butler (banjo, guitar, ukulele and vocals), Theresa Brodzinski-Norton (guitar, banjo, trumpet, vocals), Tara Lynne Sparks (bass), and Mary Merritt (mandolin, vocals). The gals are proud to sing their unique originals while also picking crowd-pleasing covers by unexpected greats like The Ramones, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Bad Religion and more. Lois and the Lantern has a diverse musical palette, writing originals that are influenced by multiple genres such as bluegrass, blues, folk, rock and more.
Elise Wunder covers Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull. Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Zeppelin. Gillian Welch. Ray Lamontagne. And she does it with a voice of oak and leather; a tone that’s soft and comforting but with an unmistakably solid foundation. Her style is heavy in a way that does not suggest world weariness so much as it does wisdom and an old soul. Her voice will take you by surprise, especially when she sets it loose at an unexpected moment and you realize the power that she has been holding back.
