Fern Spores is a Northwestern Americana band, blending blues ballads with wistful folk songs and gritty pop hooks. They channel their influences of Janis Joplin, Shakey Graves, Fleetwood Mac, and Alabama Shakes. Bold yet vulnerable lyricism wrapped up in soaring melodies, moody guitar, and driving rhythm.
Fern Spores is comprised of Alyssa Nunke (lead vocals, guitar, lyrics), Chris Zikeli (percussion, bass, backing vocals), and Jade Kovats (lead guitar, backing vocals).All raised in the Midwest and drawn to the musical and natural abundance of Western Washington, destiny brought them all separately to Olympia WA.
Ripe with chemistry, cohesion, and ambition the trio has set their sights on recording their first album in 2023 and embarking on a US tour. Currently booking for Winter 2023. Available for venues, festivals, weddings, and house concerts!
