1483 Duane St.- Astoria

Denali and the Demon Squirrel was formed in early 2009 by two young Portland, Oregon songwriters: Denali Kennedy and Jesse Faxon-Mills. They began to play live shows constantly, from farmer’s markets and coffee shops to larger stages, and they never slowed down. Both artists play guitar and sing, weaving layers of soul and their own musical wilderness through original folk rock songs. Instead of seeking to emulate their heroes, each next song writing move has been built upon a search for the perfect expression of sensation, emotion, and love. The power of their live show develops with percussive and playful guitar work, vocal delivery, and the subtle power of their lyrical content. Many of the songs are obviously haunted, but often hopeful at the same time, and some reveal a more mischievous, goofy side. This band is playing to give something real to their audience, to share the hard nights and the goodness, and spike it all with inspiration.
