Living Room Sessions: Chamberlin Birch presented by the Chief

7 p.m. Saturday, June 27, streaming live on the Chief Theater’s Facebook page

Chamberlin Birch, a duo made up of singer-songwriters Jody Feeley and Brad Rasmussen, features a unique style with tight harmonies and creative instrumentation. In 2012, the pair released their debut EP Falling In Love, as well as a music video for the album’s title track, which can be found on YouTube. Currently, they’re working on a follow-up album and performing at a variety of venues.

Based in Steamboat Springs, Chamberlin Birch has taken the Americana/folk sound of the mountains and made it their own. Together, Feeley and Rasmussen also share a passion for playing worship inside and out of the local church. They’ve had the privilege of opening for incredible artists, such as rising country star Cam, and Jonah Werner.
