ABOUT LETTER B
Ever since its inception in 2013 in Missoula, Montana, Letter B has never stopped. Born from a thought and a beat, a cadence and a rhyme – a bouncing ball bellowing under the big sky – the folk/rock/indie-hip- pop group draws inspiration from the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Atmosphere and Ray Lamontagne to blend its down-home roots with a global perspective.
Jarod Kintz once said, “I want to be a creature that’s half bee, half the letter b. that way I can pollinate the world with my literacy.” Comprised of a preacher’s progeny, duo Jordan Lane (lead vocals, guitar) and Katie C. (vocals) bring their gospel feel alongside Michael English (drums), Lhanna Writesel (saxophone), and Dillon Johns (bass) to create an endless supply of energy. Katie C’s spoken word poem from which the band draws its name can be found on its debut album “Moving Forward.”
“Letter B is a band that inspires movement and freedom, and we just like to celebrate. Our album Moving Forward is about the next level of consciousness. It’s a freedom of togetherness.”
