Goatroper: Abbey Janii & Mike Lee
Abbey Janii & Mike Lee are the creative force behind the new band Goatroper. Abbey was fronting the rock band Julie Fur, while Mike was bouncing around playing his weirdo folk songs for anyone who would listen. After releasing their solo efforts Prairie Roads and Pick Me Up Cafe, they began work on a new project playing each other's tunes. Their songs are influenced by a broad range of artists, and the result is twangy, folksy rock'n'roll outta the heartland.
