Album Notes
The Daphnes, led by Seattle harpist, Monica Schley, have released their first full-length album, Braids of Kabuya. Braids of Kabuya, sounds like: chamber jazz with harp, improvisors, female vocals & literary lyrics.

The Daphnes play mesmerizing compositions infused with classical, Celtic and jazz origins. Known for her harp stylings alongside Seattle jazz favorites Ahamefule Oluo and Evan Flory-Barnes, Schley’s music has been described as being "rich” and her "playing is intricate and determined." -- Jon Rooney, Ball of Wax Quarterly. This unconventional group draws sounds from neo-folkster M. Ward, vocal qualities of k.d. lang, and jazz musicians Pharaoh Sanders and Alice Coltrane.

The Daphnes are:
Monica Schley – harp, voice, piano
Julie Baldridge – violin
Nate Omdal – upright bass
Greg Campbell – drums set, auxiliary percussion, doumbek, bells (tracks 1, 2, 6, 7, 11, 12)
Jeremy Jones – drums set (tracks 4, 5, 9)
Rosalyn DeRoos – clarinet (track 6)
Jeppa K. Hall– voice (tracks 5, 12)
Scott Adams – accordion (tracks 2, 3, 7)
