Leif Mulch

BIOGRAPHY

Leif Solem lives in Spokane, Washington, where he plays music with a band called the Converters.

BAND MEMBERS
Leif plays all the instruments on the Leif Mulch recordings -- drums, bass, guitar, piano, viola, pennywhistle, wineglasses, banjitar, mandolin, gourd guitar, and so on, tin can, &c, and messes them up beyond recognition using "garageband" and "audacity" and an old four-track and variable speed cassette player. Also there are geese. It's fun, and harmless. Mostly.
