About Tina & Her Pony

With warm smiles and honest simplicity, Tina & Her Pony bring fresh life to old-time music.

The charming duo adds a unique sound to the American folk tradition, featuring original songs that echo familiar melodies while creating new waves with radical, queer lyrics and uncommon instrumentation.

Tina & Her Pony formed in Asheville, N.C., in 2009 following the chance meeting of Tina Collins (tenor banjo, tenor ukulele, guitar, vocals) and Quetzal Jordan (cello, guitar, vocals). Collins and Jordan spent the last two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, N.M., making music and friends, and becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts.

They draw inspiration from such artists as The Be Good Tanyas, Uncle Earl and Beirut, as well as the lush rivers and mountains that surround them.

about nervous but excited:

“Ahhhh…organic and rich like good soil…makes me want to listen and hear it grow. The songs are honest and dimensional. It’s music to my ears.”
- Amy Ray, The Indigo Girls

This Michigan-based pleasantly aggressive folk duo is a unique harmony built upon two songwriters singing genuinely crafted stories with three guitars, a mandolin, a violin, a ukulele, a harmonica, vaguely choreographed dancing and a glockenspiel. Road warriors to the core, their endless passion has landed them on stages with folks like Ani Difranco, Iron and Wine and Utah Phillips. Their live show will bounce you through a variety of emotions, always keeping you guessing which is next. You might cry, you’ll definitely laugh, and they hope you’ll leave feeling that your heart has grown just a little larger.

And this is what nervous but excited sound like:

CD RELEASE!!!!

NBE’s latest release is their most exploratory volume of work to date. “You Are Here” combines song writing finesse with a lush, yet edgy aesthetic. The release is just as enticing as those previous with a certain added, though understated, sense of both longing and adventure that shows this band is not willing to sit still. True to form, the songs are still infused with an earthly charm and a genuine sense of locality and experience, full of the kind of rawness and sincerity that most bands don’t dare attempt. Riding the same lines as Kate and Sarah’s vibrant personalities, “You Are Here” hosts are variety of styles throughout it, from the traditional Americana of Ohio to Michigan to the Pop-Folk of Puppeteer, OneFourThree and Blank Pages to Indie-Folk of Hiding Out finally to the Sultry Soul that is No Telling, there is something on this disc for everyone. NBE has even tossed in a humorous song, crowd favorite Happiest We’ve Ever Been, about the stereotypes of a certain sub-culture that they happen to exist within.

“You Are Here” features instrumentation by NBE band members Susie Giang and Murray Stewart-Jones as well as guest appearances by some of the best Michigan talent including Chris Bathgate, Frontier Ruckus, Theo Katzman, Erin Zindle (The Ragbirds), Mike Lynch (Kid Rock) and Kaylan Mitchell (The Juliettes).
