"Like a professorial Johnny Cash, he continually delivers the unexpected, and just plain blows you away!" — Chris Spector, Midwest Record (Chicago)

“He seems plucked straight out of a chapter in a Woody Guthrie biography...a disarming wit and an outspoken, no-nonsense intellect, and I really like his work.” — Lee Zimmerman, Miami-Fort Lauderdale New Times

“If the Dos Equis ‘Most Interesting Man’ job ever opens, he should apply. He’s one of those eccentric, colorful guys who seems to have done and endured just about everything.” — Michael Hamersly, Miami Herald

“Not an easy man to shove into a pigeonhole.” — Mark S. Tucker, Folk and Acoustic Music

Banjaline is an Atlanta-based banjo player and vocalist. She is self-taught on the banjo and plays clawhammer and three-finger picking style.

Influences include Buell Kazee, The SteelDrivers, Clarence Ashley, Doc Watson, and Mike Seeger. The style of her music could be described as Americana, Southern Gothic, or Outlaw Country. Common themes of her songs are moonshine, murder, traveling, hauntings, horror, drinking, and animals. Banjaline performs solo or with a backing band featuring a saw. Her performance history started with the Stovetop Ramblers in late 2013, and she was part of HotHouse Peaches in 2014/2015.
