Cold Mountain Child
Cold Mountain Child
Shadowy black locust reach before starscapes
galaxial wash is billions of suns
deer quickens startled out of mists
heart tenders, softening to the majesty
the unfolding speaks softly barely whispers
yet ever is present as dark lake roaring
moths flutter soundless in powdery grace
wings enter pupils, in them new myths created
Tin Can Diamonds
Tin Can Diamonds
Tin Can Diamonds is a folk rock band from Madison, WI. Infectious melodies, cutting lyrics and powerful female lead vocals over a broad interplay of driving folk and blues stylings keep their songs echoing in your thoughts days after a performance.

The vocal powerhouse provided by Madison music veteran Aarushi Agni bursts forth amid a versatile, grounded, and sometimes funky rhythm section provided by Ben Strohbeen on the bass and Dave Janus on the drums. Mitch Johnson, a Houston native, provides a melodic counterbalance to Aarushi’s vocals, with his dusky crooning and his guitar lines that meander to a cities far away and forgotten.

In their short time playing together, TCD has made a splash in the Madison music scene, playing packed shows bursting with dynamic energy. They are known around Madison for planning themed shows that engage the audience. They also make a point to work with artists that share values rather than genre.

TCD tells a story with its music, touching on themes of love, loss and food, but also occasionally giving comment to deeper themes— the top-down implications of capitalism, the silence of queer experience, and the quiet violence society enacts against women and minorities. Never heavy, TCD’s music is about finding beauty in the world beyond the barriers, uplifting your soul, and having a great time.

In its very naming, Tin Can Diamonds seeks to find the beauty in places where it might be overlooked. Part of that mission is embodied in the desire to uplift other unsung artists in Madison.

Tin Can Diamonds is set to release their first full-length self-titled album later this year. They have appeared in several radio spots, including Live@WSUM, the Jimmy K Show and EJ’s Cafe; they have performed at venues large and small around Madison. TCD’s folk EP “In the Rough” was a finalist for a Madison Area Music Award in 2015.
