Miriam - It started in a graveyard.

A stark gray stone surrounded by lush green grass.

It bore the name Miriam and underneath the words, “I Am So Happy”.

The picture so perfectly depicted such artistic and emotional contrast in its dreary, macabre sweetness, it had to be put to use.

In 2009, when multi-award-winning singer-songwriters Amy Fairchild and Carla Ryder decided to combine their voices and join forces to start a band, Miriam was born.

It was sheer coincidence that they would later learn Miriam was a strong and insightful biblical prophetess of the Old Testament who led her people in song and instrument.They recruited the coveted multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Andy Santospago, whose music traverses a long and winding road from classical, jazz, acoustic finger style, Latin, bluegrass and folk, and rock.

Over the next few years, they would pluck up talented drummer about town Ian McMillan, monster bass player Jeff St.

Pierre and the best fiddle playing/mandolin pickin' player this side of anywhere, Michael Spaly.

The group has garnered a loyal following by playing a monthly residency (the last Tuesday of each month at Toad in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA) cultivating a sound and creating true alchemy among them.

They have been described as a rollickin’ blend of Americana-infused countrified roots-rock.

The focus is on the tight harmonies, catchy songs and superb playing, at times playful, at times moody, but mostly it’s boot-stompin,’ lead vocal swappin’, ass-kickin’ fun.

Steve Morse, former critic of 30 years at The Boston Globe says, ' Music for the sheer pleasure of it... effervescent harmonies and melodic nirvana.'

Autumn Hollow has played over one hundred shows in some of the best regional venues including The Paradise Rock Club, The Iron Horse Music Hall, the Higher Ground, The Regent Theater, and Club Passim.

They have shared the stage with national acts, including The Handsome Family, The Wooden Sky, Brown Bird, and Dead Winter Carpenters.

The band is a mish-mash of the Grateful Dead and The Band, more Wilco than Son Volt, but is a sound all their own.

The Autumn Holler gents make you want to flick a Bic, raise a beer and sing along.

“Like a little cross between Whiskey Town and Uncle Tupelo as these guys caught me right away.” -Musikkbloggen

“The album’s momentum never wavers, and not once did a song grace my ears that I didn’t want to hear again.

Or three times, or four.

F**k it, just hit repeat and let this be the soundtrack of my day!” -Max Bowen of the Noise

“Autumn Hollow is a band that sounds like The Band.

They have one foot in rock, one in folk and one in-country.

They are a three-legged monster of Americana.”- Daykamp
