Builder of the House is a Portland, ME based Indie Folk outfit comprised of Robert Cimitile and Elliot Heeschen.
The group’s eclectic sound, rooted in folk and Bluegrass, started its journey on the EP “I Am a Tidal Wave” and has continued to evolve. The “Hourglass” EP has an expanded full band sound born out of collaborations with other artists in the Portland music scene who appear on the record. Haunting ballads like “A Plot In Falmouth” feature alongside the seriously irresistible pop hooks of “There Is No Hourglass, Only Sand.”
Builder of the House has been featured on ReverbNation, SoundCloud, and the CD Baby DIY Musician blog. Their sound has been described as “a cross between Elliott Smith and Ray Davies.” The music consists of “great memorable tunes with super smart lyrics” sung with a “voice that is both instantly warm and appealing.”
Builder of the House can be seen performing in Portland and around the Northeast.
