Gratiot Lake Road is the modern folk music of husband and wife Ben and Emaleigh Jensen. Songwriter Emaleigh sings and plays melodies on a closed-back banjo and Ben sings harmonies while fingerpicking an acoustic guitar and stomping with ankle-percussion. Their songs vary from soft ballads to upbeat jams played in a style that has been described as haunting, bittersweet, and eerie. Since their 2009 inception while living in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Gratiot Lake Road has released two albums and performed at festivals, art galleries, historic theaters, house shows, bars, and dives throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic.
