Screen Door Porch delivers a Wyoming-grown fusion of soulful Americana, Roots-Rock and Country-Blues that has been likened to “Gillian Welch meets The Band, with Ryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt hanging out backstage” (605 Magazine). The core female/male singer-songwriter pair of Seadar Rose & Aaron Davis offer rustic harmonies, a diverse mix of acoustic & electric instrumentation, and “a sort of Lennon/McCartney arrangement and get it right every time” (Americana UK). Screen Door Porch was featured in a Sunday edition of the New York Times for their “entrepreneurial gumption” in founding the WYOmericana Caravan Tour, while Paste Magazine named them one of Wyoming's Top Bands, “an impressive musical discovery.”  

The band’s third studio album, Modern Settler, is Screen Door Porch’s first recording as the current four-piece unit, which includes fretless bassist Tom Davidson and drummer/harmony vocalist Andy Peterson.

Modern Settler is out now.
