Jami Lunde with Eben Grace
Jami Lunde with Eben Grace
Jami Lunde and Eben Grace met in 2006, amid the flowering bluegrass music scene of Lyons, CO.

2 kindred, wayward musical souls more at home with snarling cranked amps than banjo ramblings, they've conspired to bring their vision of gritty, windswept, sad girl Americana to audiences far and wide.

An original Midwest native, Jami grew up to a background of album rock and began singing and writing as soon as she could reach the guitar. She writes from the far flung waypoints of her heart, soul and tattered passport. A Colorado native, Eben cut his teeth in bars and on the road, developing a distinct guitar voice honed simply to suit the song.

Jami and Eben collaborated on Jami's 2010 release 'big black birds' and have played together steadily ever since. With Jami's burnished, honest voice and larger than life j-200 strum, and Eben's deep-track tele tone, their tiny band fills any room with music and spirit.


About Big Black Birds
Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven...Big Black Birds is about the conversations between Jami and the black birds that followed her all over Colorado, California, Thailand, and Indonesia while she was writing this album. The album is built from her experience as an alt- country troubadour, weaving tales of travel, self-realization and death. Features Chris Funk of The Decemberists...

This album was produced by Jami Lunde and Eben Grace (Grace Designs), and features a guest appearance from her long time friend Chris Funk of The Decemberists, who plays moog, lap dulcimer and electric guitars on the Wilco-esque heavy song Raincloud.

In addition, Jami made use of the vast talent pool of amazing players in and around Lyons, Co : Todd Patrick Livingston (Hit and Run bluegrass, Missy Raines, Ralph Stanley jr, ), Jack Leahy (Gregory Alan Isakov, Paper Bird) Brian Schey (Great American Taxi) along with Ian Morlock (Kort McCumber & The High Road) and Greg McRae on Keys, guitar and percussion. Falling in the neighborhood of Lucinda Williams with her full band, Buick Six, and Kathleen Edwards, Jami is proud to have written all the songs on the album and to have worked with such notable talents. Big Black Birds was Recorded at Macy Sound Studios in Denver, Coupe Studios in Boulder, North Fork Studio in Lyons, CO and Funk Studio in Portland, OR from June 2009- December 2010.
