The Rhizomes

Approaching song-writing from a witty storytelling perspective, the Rhizomes compel their listener through humor and shared experiences sung by Emily Gaarder, laid-back rhythm by Chris Handsone on drums, and melding notes by David Syring on bass and trumpet. The three members created the band in 2019, having been neighbors in Chester Park alley. Since then, they frequent neighborhood basements and local venues with their power pop and the occasional punk side eye. This group’s warm vocals and melodic music bonds their listeners together through the shared experiences of being human.
