The Brownsmead Flats play acoustic music that may be best described as “Crabgrass”, which they liken to a folk/bluegrass style with a maritime flavor. The band has a strong focus on vocal harmonies and many of their songs are composed by members of the group and reflect on living in the Pacific Northwest. A variety of instruments are played by the quintet comprised of Dan Sutherland, Ray Raihala, Ned Heavenrich, John Fenton, and Larry Moore.

Born and raised in Oregon, her truest home resides in the song she writes.
