'Canary in the Coal Mine' is an Americana/Indie Folk band fronted by songwriters Jessica Pounds and Sandy Wicker. A haunting quality underscores striking vocal harmonies and provides a focal point for the band’s Appalachian folk and alt country influences. It's that uniquely characteristic sound of their voices together that first caught the girls’ attention in July of 2009, when they crossed paths busking in the streets of Asheville, North Carolina. They were immediately struck by an undeniable compatibility, and although they lived 500 miles apart the band was formed within four months.

Beyond vocals, Jessica and Sandy switch off between ukulele and guitar, and the Jacksonville, FL native band is completed by Chris Buck on banjo & drums, Jonathan Plant on upright bass, and multi-instrumentalist Arvid Smith plays Dobro, Melobar, electric & 12 string guitars, and sitar.
