Press Information for The Gnarly Pints
The Gnarly Pints (Emily & Jacob Nolen) are all about breaking the stereotypes that surround acoustic genres of music – and have thus created an exciting live music experience. The married duo started playing cafés and open mics early in the second decade of the millennium and have not looked back since. With a full-length album, two EP’s, and multiple self-produced singles under their belt, The Pints have toured the West Coast with their foot-pounding percussion, violin-shredding riffs, and dynamic male-fronted vocals sound since 2014. The duo has headlined multiple events and festivals, including the Fort Bragg Beer Festival on the Northern California coast every year since 2015.
The Gnarly Pints have also had great success opening for international award-winning artists like Celtic folk duo Men of Worth and four-time Grammy award-winning singer Kevin Max, with whom they toured Washington state for a series of benefit concerts.
Jacob & Emily continue to perform locally and nationally, as well as faithfully recording and releasing music. Their latest release, California, is an adventurous EP that features their new song “Breaking Out” – the music video can be found on their YouTube channel.
The Gnarly Pints are currently writing what will be their second full-length album!
They proudly reside in Chico, California with their two daughters, aka “half pints” 🙂
