The Early Risers

The Early Risers are a folk duo made up of Ashley Storrow and Putnam Smith. Both rootsy and lyrical, their original songs feature close vocal harmonies and arrangements on a wide array of instruments: banjo, guitar, mandolin, piano, and shruti box.  After pursuing separate solo singer/songwriter careers, they joined forces in 2015 and have since toured across the country, from Maine to Texas to California to Vancouver, BC. They have played notable venues such as Club Passim, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and the High Plains Public Radio concert series. 

Their debut album, “Making Life Sweet” went to #1 album on the national Folk DJ Charts (November, 2019), with 4 tracks in the top ten most played songs.  Ashley and Putnam put on a unique and remarkable show that lingers in the heart, mind, and imagination, long after the last round of applause. They currently live in Vermont.
