The Ginger Envelope

The Ginger Envelope crafts smooth, folk-influenced rock and pop, appropriate for intimate basement shows. Using classic organ sounds and flowing pedal steel guitar, they show a love for setting cozy moods.

On their debut album Edible Orchids, the Georgia based band hooks their solid songwriting and sweet choruses to mellow Americana. The CD begins with the upbeat, bass-heavy "Care Take Her." Patrick Carey's vocals sound raspy and a bit lethargic but entirely pleasant. Steve Miller's walking bass line keeps the track moving. His lyrics and the group's gloomy country twang imply a slight sense of despair on tracks like "Dirty Penny."

The Ginger Envelope includes members from other Athens bands such as Venice is Sinking, Dark Meat, and Centro-matic. The band is currently working on a follow-up album.
