The Threadbare Skivvies are a duo from Atlanta. They like to describe themselves, and their music, as vagabond nature folk. It’s a bohemian banjo bangin', stompin’ & clappin’ kind of business: powerhouse harmonies, funky rhythms, and soulfully crafted lyrics.
Kate Wright began performing in suburban coffee shops as a solo singer songwriter at 15. She attributes her development as a lyricist to nature, good literature, and the worries and wonders of love. Chris Adams started out drumming for an Atlanta alternative band, Chainestereo, in the early 2000s. For Threadbare Skivvies, Kate does vocals and plays guitar, banjo and uke, while Chris plays accordion, bass, and various percussion and joins Kate on vocals. Chris is also the drummer for another Atlanta band, Jesse & the Great Perhaps.
Kate and Chris met one blustery winter evening about five years ago at a cabin party in the North Georgia woods and the two have been inseparable since. But it wasn’t until the fall of 2012 that they began performing together officially. They are currently working on a full-length album.
