After touring the east coast, Jesi Fortino brings her Tiny Vipers alias, voice and guitar to the Fremont Abbey Arts Center for her CD release show Saturday night. […]

New Song by Tiny Vipers

Tiny Vipers second album, Life On Earth, is due out July 7th on Sub Pop. This Seattle resident has enchanted me. The first song to be released from the album is "Dreamer." Listen to it! There is something so delicate and yet so solid about Jesy Fortino's songs. Her carefully placed syllables come from between […]

Photo Essay: Tiny Vipers w/ Grouper

Show Date: April 17, 2009

I knew what I was getting into when the Tiny Vipers / Grouper show was announced: A fairly mellow and relaxing show. Grouper is the ambient/noise band name of Liz Harris hailing from Portland. The Grouper wiki page perfectly described her aesthetic as "Harris' music is a mixture of softly strummed acoustic guitar and her […]

Best of 2007: Joseph Riippi's minima-lists

Anyone who knows me outside of the HTML world knows two things: I am a big guy. I don’t know my way around HTML very well. In order to thwart my big-guy status, I’ve done many things over time. First, I enjoy minimalist art a lot more than big, bombastic art. This carries to music […]

Burn to Shine: Bright Seattle stars

Opening with a montage of Seattle, Burn to Shine's forthcoming Emerald City edition is quintessentially us. The film's opening montage pieced together clips of places here and there — the I-90 bridge, homeless people at a bus stop, downtown hustle and bustle — all familiar, but not cliched street corners.

Bumbershoot 2007: Tiny Vipers

Show Date: September 1, 2007

When I first saw the Bumbershoot 2007 schedule, one of the artists I was most excited to see was Tiny Vipers, the moniker for Seattle artist Jesy Fortino, a band that has taken Seattle by storm of late, getting signed to Sub Pop records and releasing a devastating debut record, Hands Across the Void. I'd […]

Hands Across the Void

{

/11}

Tiny Vipers' Hands Across the Void demonstrates her–the band is actually the project of Jesy Fortino–full power of her talent. While her guitar pieces may be along the lines of what you'd hear when friends quietly fiddle around late at night-extremely minimalist, single string picking–it's her vocals that draw you in–strong and commanding, with determined […]
