Elephant Hotel

The “elephant in the room” is a common theme of Kristy Marie O’Neill and Jacob Mahon’s songwriting, a concept that evolved into the moniker Elephant Hotel. Their collaboration started when they met at an open mic. “I barely make time for those impromptu sorts of things but it happened and it was really great,” O’Neill says. Together they combine banjo, guitar and harmonies in a playful set. “It’s kind of on your toes, like you don’t know what’s gonna happen and we don’t either,” O’Neill says. “It’s always fun.”
