Debut Album Out Now

About Inland Isle

Inland Isle - Jackson Hole Folk-Rock Band - Studio

Emerging from the mountain town of Jackson, Wyoming, Inland Isle is a new indie folk-rock band whose members were bound to find each other in a small – but surprisingly deep – music scene.

On their eight-song debut album, Time Has Changed Us, Inland Isle reckons with the aftermath of upheaval in America and its effects on relationships, community and livelihoods.

Set in dramatic, dirty rock landscapes tinged with psychedelia, the songs are anchored by accessible hooks and the introspective lyrics crooned by songwriter-guitarist Pat Chadwick atop lush vocal harmonies.

“Grieving for our country/Lost sight of my home/My hands left your side/To fumble with my phone/Little tragedies I didn’t need to know,” Chadwick sings about a politically altered relationship on the moving title track.

Frequently confused as brothers at shows, Chadwick and lead guitarist Dusty Nichols both grew up in Massachusetts – and even lived in the same Boston-area neighborhood in their 20s – but never met until moving 2,300 miles away to secluded Jackson Hole. They had individually earned nods from the likes of Paste magazine and NPR for their songwriting in prior bands. After those projects became dormant, this collaboration became a natural fit in the spring of 2019.

The Inland Isle lineup is rounded out by frequent collaborator and prolific musician Leif Routman as bassist, and Shawn Fleming, an intuitive drummer with industry engineering experience in LA and Portland, OR. With members now spending time in Portland and Boise, ID, Inland Isle is already building a fanbase across the Mountain West and Pacific Northwest.

The newly formed band quickly built its rapport by working out four-part harmonies at weekly vocal-only gatherings; trading out their instruments for copious amounts of wine. Those harmonies quickly became an indispensable part of their sound. Recorded in a Montana cabin, Time Has Changed Us was engineered and produced by Fleming and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, The Shins).
