About Rags & Ribbons

Rags & Ribbons play melodic rock anthems driven by classically-inspired piano.  Progressive and post-rock influences by way of Queen, Muse, MEW and Sigur Ros color these intricate pop songs, expressing desire, yearning, regret and joy like only pop can.

Pianist, Jonathan Hicks, and guitarist, Ben Weyerhaeuser, met and decided to form the band while singing together in school choirs.  Their twinned vocals are a key element of the band’s sound, adding depth and showmanship to their songs.  By a fortunate twist of fate, the band became complete when drummer, Chris Neff, responded to a Craigslist post from Jon and Ben.  The band’s diverse backgrounds, ranging from the ghetto of Flint, Michigan to the suburbs of Portland, Oregon to the farmlands of rural Washington State, provide a broad scope of influences and musical styles.  Rags & Ribbons strive to create unique music and live performances that communicate an exciting range of shared human experiences.
