In other news, our Album Release indiegogo campaign was fully funded! Whoo hoo! Thanks to everyone who planned ahead and reserved their spot for July 15th. We have a few spots available if anyone is feeling left out.

See everyone at the party in July!

We are honored to be voted Best Original Band in the 2017 Inlander Readers Poll!

"Folkinception has been a Spokane favorite since forming in 2011, blending rustic Americana with the kind of slick, melodic pop-folk you might hear on a Top 40 station. They're also a hell of a lot of fun to watch live. The band Kickstarted its 2014 debut LP Tower Mountain, and they're set to release a new album later this year."

Thanks to everyone who casted a vote for us. We feel special. A big hearty congratulations to our friends in Mama Doll of whom we're sharing the honor with. There are some special people/things happening in Spokane these days.

Keep an eye out for our upcoming shows. We have some BIG announcements waiting in the wings. Stay tuned.

Holy Moly! What an excellent time we had in Seattle and Portland. Thanks to the impressive amount of you who traveled short and long distances to see the shows! We saw plenty of familiar faces and lots of new ones. We hope to be back to the westside very soon!!! In the meantime, get your tickets for St. Paddy's day at The Bartlett. It's going to be a great time!

2/20:

We're headed west this Friday to share some Folkinception with Seattle and Portland. Both of these shows are going to be a crazy good time. We're honored to be sharing a bill with Dead Winter Carpenters and Scott Law & Ross James' Cosmic Twang at Nectar Lounge in Seattle. The following night we're hoping to survive a craft beer and spirit pairing festival. Music before booze band. Music before booze.

We had a spine tingling good time playing our songs with the CDA Symphony. Check out a couple recordings from the matinée performance on the right. We're gearing up for some fun out of town shows in Richland, Moscow and Seattle. We're also wrapping up tracking for the new album. Onwards and upwards!

We talked about our upcoming CDA Symphony shows with the one and only Verne Windham on Spokane Public Radio. We also had the chance to perform one of our new tunes, Leather Heart, live on the air.

Check out the interview/performance here.

We're very excited to announce that we will be playing Nectar Lounge in Seattle with Dead Winter Carpenters and Scott Law & Ross James' Cosmic Twang! It's our first venture in Sea-town and we couldn't ask for a better venue to introduce ourselves!

Come see us Friday, February 24th at Nectar!

We wrote a Christmas song for the Bartlett Christmas Album. Our song, 358 Days is track one. It's a nod to 2016, grumble grumble... Featuring our talented drummer Kent AKA The Holy Broke.

Come hear these tunes in person this weekend!

12/2:

To say we're excited about this one is a huge understatement! We're teaming up with the Coeur d'Alene Symphony for two magical shows performing our very own music! The orchestra arrangements were done by Hans Peter-Preu of Germany.

Tickets and more information can be found at cdasymphony.org.

10/25:

The new album is in the works! In between sessions we'll be sneaking away for a night of hard hitting music in historic Wallace Idaho. Mark your calendars for November 12th! We'll be playing in the overflow room adjacent to the Fainting Goat.

In recent years our good buddy, Rick Welliver, has brought boxing back to the Silver Valley and his 'Fight Nights' have become YUGE! If you've never experianced the rustic charm of Wallace this is a great opportunity. Book your lodging now!

Our recording adventure is nearly upon us! Come send us off and throw us some spare change at Iron Goat Brewery!

6/23:

From the good people who bring you Elkfest and Gleasonfest, The Moontime 20th Anniversary Party will go down on July 9th!

We're honored to be headlining this unique event in beautiful Coeur D'Alene Idaho. This will be one of just a few Folkinception shows for the rest of the summer as we hunker down in preparation to record in October.

Speaking of recording... we're beyond excited to share with you that we've rented out an amazing lodge in NW Montana for a solid week this October. We'll start tracking the album there, under the direction of our new producer Chris White. Chris is beyond legit, and we really have no business working with someone as talented and professional as he is. Did we mention how excited we are?!

Come join us in CDA for some killer music and legendary corn pasta! T.B.L.C. (The Blessed Life Continues).

xoxo,
Folkinception

We cut some demo recordings this week. Here is a sneak peek!

We're all set to record a new album this fall and we couldn't be more excited. We'll start tracking in an amazing lodge that sits on the Bull River in Northwestern Montana. This fall cannot come soon enough!

We had an excellent run through Montana this past weekend! Always a blast! Here is a radio interview we did in Whitefish... pretty great recordings, if we don't say so ourselves!

We're counting the days until our next couple of Spokane shows, Volume and Elkfest. These festivals are premiere music events in Spokane and we're honored to be given such great sets at both!

THANK YOU SPOKANE FOR VOTING US 2ND BEST ORIGINAL BAND TWO YEARS IN A ROW!
A big tip of the cap to our friends in Marshall McLean Band for taking first... again. We'd be more resentful if they wern't so freekin' awesome!

We're gearing up for a busy spring! We'll kick it off with a show at The Bartlett on April 9th. This show will feature a ton of new songs and a brand new drummer! We're really excited to share our latest work with everyone, so make sure you come to the show and spread the word! Later in April we'll take our fresh sound to the road playing Moscow Idaho, Missoula Montana and Whitefish Montana! More shows to be announced shortly. See you soon!

We're far too excited to postpone this announcement any longer... (drumroll please) ...

Our new drummer is the talented Kent Ueland! You may know him from his depressingly awesome project The Holy Broke, (who happens to be opening for us every show this month) or his previous band the (mighty) Terrible Buttons. Kent is a talented beast behind a drum kit and he's absolutely the perfect fit for Folkinception. We're so very excited to play our first show with him this Saturday at The Bartlett!!!

If you can't make it to The Bartlett show come find us on the road later this month as we travel through Idaho and Montana. Fun times ahead!

We funded our first album, Tower Mountain, with a Kickstarter campaign. It took a ton of work and perseverance to heckle our friends and family for money, but ultimately, it was a successful venture and we have a great first album to show for it.

As we gear up to record our second album we've decided against crowd funding and are instead opting to raise funds the old fashion way… by playing live and slinging copies of the first album. If you’re itching to support the Folkinception movement, please come see us live in 2016 and (if you haven’t already) consider buying your own copy of Tower Mountain.

You can purchase a digital download through our Bandcamp page.

Stay tuned for some exciting announcements! A sincerely happy New Year to you all!

We had another great Montana adventure opening for the Lil' Smokies! We ventured up to Whitefish this time and played at the one and only Great Northern! We can't get back to Montana soon enough.

For now, we're going to hunker down and work on some new material. Check back soon for some exciting announcements. Happy Holidays to everyone!

11/9:

We had an absolutely amazing time at The Top Hat in Missoula this past weekend! Big thanks to our friends the Lil' Smokies for bringing us on board and sharing their 600+ person, sold out Montana fan-base with us. We came away with the distinct feeling we made at least a few hundred new fans! This night was special for a variety of reasons, one of which was that it was our new drummer, Chase Williams' Folkinception debut! Chase killed it with an impressive amount of composure, style and some damn sexy hair! Great job Chase!

Up next is another Montana gig with the Smokies on December 19th. We'll be venturing into Whitefish to play the ever-rowdy, ever-awesome Great Northern. We highly recommend making it to this one. Folkinception in Montana is our new favorite self!
