All My Pretty Ones

The pretty ones were created when lead singer Derek Schmidt sought a unique outlet for the classic singer/songwriter aesthetic in which he found himself. Slowly the open project has evolved with the additionsof Jesse Wade on guitar, Jocelyn Bentley-Prestwich on Oboe, Genessa Kealoha on Upright Bass, and Matt Payne playing Percussion and Accordion. AMPO is not a static unit, and the easy flow amongst the various members keeps their stage performance sparkling at all times. Like most of Derek's music, All My Pretty Ones' sound runs from quiet and thoughtful songwriting to sometimes large epics on piano and guitar. Schmidt says his folk, bluegrass, and classical influences combine in an attempt to "further the advance of indie songwriting and sensibilities." AMPO plays throughout the Bay Area on a regular basis and also enjoys trekking out on larger tours to test their mettle while increasing their audience.
