Essentially the project of Portland via Idaho musician Justin Ringle, Horse Feathers was conceived when Ringle relocated to Portland with the hopes of finding like-minded musicians, after having no luck in his native state. This move proved fruitful, as Ringle immediately met the Brodericks, a brother and sister who shared musical interests with Ringle. Horse Feathers did not retain this familial duo after the release of its first album and while the band has had a constantly rotating cast of players, the band's sound - lush chamber-folk - has remained consistent.
