House of Stairs

Local to Phoenix AZ since 2014, House of Stairs includes vocal loop artist Holly Pyle, keyboardist Garrison Jones, drummer Stephen Avalos and multi-instrumentalist Shea Marshall.

Often described as a cross between Erykah Badu and Radiohead, they combine improvisation with intricately arranged layers of visual poetry and metric diversity for a free yet deliberate live experience.

Most distinctive to the group is use of live-layered vocals alongside polyrhythmic textures and Dilla-inspired backbeats.
