All My Pretty Ones

All My Pretty Ones are a six-member group from the San Francisco Bay Area. Led by songwriter Derek Schmidt, the band plays richly-orchestrated, folk-influenced music. Songs rely heavily on acoustic guitar and piano, with occasional flourishes from a wide array of instruments like oboe, upright bass, mandolin and glockenspiel.

Their debut EP, "Handsbreadth," was released last year and includes five songs combining lighthearted melodies with Schmidt's rather mournful lyrics. You can listen to songs on their Myspace page or catch them live at one of a handful of California shows in the coming months.
