Short Description: 
Live on Drinking From Puddles for 07/20/11 it's Tumbledown House !!

“Somewhere between the sights and sounds of Deadwood, S.D., and 1920s cabaret, Tumbledown House has created an act all their own.”
-Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Tumbledown House is a songwriting duo from Bozeman, Montana. Often described as gritty saloon jazz, parlor music inflicted with the unspeakable, or Tom Waits in a cocktail dress, Tumbledown House writes stories that revolve around shady characters down on their luck, brothels with an eccentric clientele, or a scorned woman out for revenge. These stories are delivered with sultry female vocals reminiscent of a bygone era and placed over jazz guitar accompaniment.
