Led by Rachel Price, Tofte is a folk-inspired Americana band based out of Seattle, Washington. In short, it is new folk music written and performed by jazz musicians who take pleasure in the simple things. Lead vocalist and songwriter Rachel Price drives the band with rich, sultry melodies supported by choral counterpoint. Evan Smith's clarinet melodies sing out alongside and around the vocals, playing in sweet duality with the mandolin (Dune Butler), baritone ukulele (Rachel Price), and charango (Rachel Price). Upright bass (Carmen Rothwell) and percussion (David Solomon) lend a solid foundation to Tofte's soaring harmonies.
