From the Upstage website:

Home-schooled by her mother in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, Shenendoah's layered indie-folk music doesn't seem such a stretch, nor does her affinity for her adopted hometown of Seattle. But that kind of music is somewhat of an odd choice for a woman who graduated from college in Colorado with a bachelor's degree in opera performance. As a classically trained musician, it's not strange that she would join the ranks of Seattle's popular orchestral pop group, Grand Hallway. What is different is that Davis plays accordion and vibraphone with the group. The shift from pursuing a classical music career came as kind of a surprise, even for Davis.

"Tideman is a cellist, and a good one at that. Her MySpace page claims she is “for the most part self-taught,” a feat that, on the cello (one of the most difficult instruments to learn), is all but impossible. Each piece (most were lyric-less) had a story. “I don’t know about you guys, but I fantasize about clipper ships,” she said, and played a song about them. One song was about the birds that flock around her when she plays cello outside, one was a song that Bela Bartok ripped off from gypsies, and others were about the wind or parallel universes or a mouse and a motorcycle." -The Stranger
