“The trio…honors melody as much as it does the shifting rhythms and deep harmonic structures they’re adept at creating.” – Live for Live Music

Sprig of That is one of the most flexible and skilled bands I have had the pleasure of working with…the sonic ecosystem they’ve created with their unique instrumentation is at once as surprising as it is gorgeous.” – Wes Corbett (Sam Bush Band, Molly Tuttle, Joy Kill Sorrow)

Sprig of That is a tabla, fiddle, and guitar trio playing a hearty Midwest-raised and globally-inspired acoustic stew. In early 2023, they released bloom, their full-length, all-original debut album, produced by Wes Corbett (Sam Bush Band, Joy Kill Sorrow) and engineered/mixed by Dave Sinko (Punch Brothers, Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer) recorded at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium studios over the course of a week in December 2021. Formed in Minneapolis, MN in 2018, the group has spent the last five years making a name for themselves across the country: playing historic venues like Minneapolis’ Cedar Cultural Center and NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, sharing the stage with artists like Charlie Parr and Emilia Amper, and collaborating with organizations like Carnegie Hall and Minnesota Public Radio to give workshops at schools across the country. In 2021, they released “Eight Threads,” a cross-genre collaboration comprising 8 compositions written for the trio by eight very different Twin Cities-based music makers.


Ollella’s career as a musician started early, when she sang before she could talk. Trained as a classical cellist since the age of nine, the Seattle indie-folk musician merges her technical background with authoritative vocals, live-looping, and improvisation. Described as “really outstanding” by NPR Music’s Bob Boilen and “so tastefully done” by Michelle Zauner (AKA Japanese Breakfast), Ollella blends the acoustic with the contemporary, folk with pop, and tenacity with softness, pulling on influences such as Jesca Hoop, Cat Power, and Aoife O’Donovan. Her playing has been featured in films screened at Film Festivals such as Sundance and Aspen Film Fest, on recordings with others including Grammy-winning artist Peter Kater, and has shared the stage with popular Americana acts such as the Shook Twins and Rising Appalachia. She finds herself drawn to music because it unlocks a particularly organic flavor of humanity – one that fits the type of world she believes in.

    This sounds like such a cool, unique opportunity – in a cool, unique space! Would love to bond with my partner over sound healing.

    I would love to be immersed in sound healing! I always celebrate on the full moon by myself, this would be a magical chance to celebrate with other beautiful souls. Plus, I sure love strawberries! 🙂
