As a songwriter, Kiri Oliver has a knack for taking the ups and downs of everyday life and granting them a mythic, otherworldly quality. As the singer and guitarist of Brooklyn-based punk/folk/pop quartet Early Riser, along with cellist and vocalist Heidi Vanderlee, she's currently fronting one of the most distinct-sounding bands in a scene already brimming with talent. Longtime music bookers for The Chris Gethard Show, Oliver and Vanderlee aren't afraid to do things a little differently, crafting pop songs that are heavy on harmony and strings, while harnessing a manic energy somewhere between the Weakerthans and the Mountain Goats (two of Oliver's favorite bands). Vanderlee has also played live with/on records by Mikey Erg, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Mal Blum and Plow United, and has toured with Lemuria.
