  • Bio The Desert Kind manages to both acknowledge the roots of folk music and blend in modern sounds that will satisfy bearded hipster crowds. The sound of The Desert Kind resonates in the rising mountains and twisting roads of the pacific northwest echoing emotional struggles and passions penned by artists like Woody Guthrie and Roy Harper. The songs are culled from day to day struggle of common people live and thrive in the complex and sometimes complexly simple world. A blend of Americana country and folk ballads, singer, Chris Bigley's lyrics emerge from a root which is common to all people but remains unnoticed until it is given the grace of poetic verse.
