Toadstool Shadow is an elfcore music & arts collective. We do music, videos, and fashion. The genre is psych-pop. Primarily, we're creating an original three-part fairy tale opera. "Rainbow Nights," our debut album came out last year. "Folk Songs of the American Wood Elf," our second album came out in August 2021. It's the soundtrack to our first movie, which premiered in September 2021.

It's a conceptualist art project. The concept is that there is another realm, hiding all around us.

In August 2021, we're moving from Yellow Springs, Ohio to Chillicothe, Ohio. We're starting anew. Looking for musicians to join or collaborate with. I'd like to start acoustic.

I sing and play guitar, bass, some keyboards and other instruments (uke, mando). My main thing is composition.

I'm looking for singers, percussion, multi-instrumentalist, keyboards. I will have rehearsal space in Chillicothe. The goal is to keep doing videos, another movie, busking, cabaret and stage shows. The immediate goal is regular weekly rehearsal on a weeknight.
