Seth & Andy started composing original works for the piano & drums in Summer, 2016, and debuted them on a rural Oregon tour in 2017. Seth Kinzie is a classical pianist and modern composer, and Andy Steele is an experimental/jazz drummer and gong percussionist. They bonded over their passion for expressive, visceral post-jazz and a desire to collaborate on a new genre of music within their rural community. Their performances are alternately contemplative and wild, involving a medley of Impressionist compositions & instrumental arrangements of rock and romantic music. “When I Was A Tree”, the debut LP from Kinzie Steele, was released in 2018. It was engineered and mixed by Bart Budwig (John Craigie, Shook Twins) and produced by Ben Kirby (Sun Blood Stories) at a remote Oregon farmhouse with 27 goats and a llama. They were selected to play at the prestigious Treefort Music Fest in in 2019, to rave reviews from SSG Music (“Engrossing, engaging post-jazz compositions which will have jaws on the floor and tears in the eye”) and Dæv Tremblay, Quebec (“A frank success”). Their album has been selected by Shum Derevyev Records from Siberia, translated as “Music for Trees & People”, to be re-released in Russia in 2021 on special edition cassette tape.
