Vaudeville Etiquette's dynamic sound pushes the boundaries of psych-folk with grit, passion, and come-hither wit. The Seattle quintet fills timeless melodies with modern lyrics, heady harmonies, and a potent country-meets-classic-rock chemistry.
Their live performances are magnetic and provocative. Duo lead vocals and a wailing pedal steel dive from energetic anthems to wistful ballads and back again with psychedelia and fearless on-stage improvisation.
Vaudeville Etiquette has been covered in USA Today, CMJ, Seattle Magazine, Relix, Yahoo! Music, American Songwriter, No Depression, Vinyl District, and more, including the Seattle Times, who called Vaudeville Etiquette “Seattle music’s bright new face” and a "New and Noteworthy" spotlight on iTunes.

"Front to back this album this album is outstanding...Each song is a set up for the next. The production is of course top-shelf and the musicianship through is tight and in everyone is in the pocket...absolutely no flaws. Highly recommended to pick this one up."
- Glen Casebeer, Northwest Music Scene
"Their melodies are riveting and full of revelry, and when they get going, as on tunes like “Clara Bow” and “Blood & Bone,” the energy is so infectious it practically begs a sing-along. On the other hand, beautiful ballads like “Abilene,” “What Better Time” and “Enemy Lines” reveal a sentimental side that ratchets up the overall appeal. This foot-stomping Seattle combo can romp and roll, and with Debutantes & Dealers, they demonstrate they’re only just beginning. Consider this an invitation for the rest of us to join in."
- Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
"Vaudeville Etiquette may swim in the same pool as Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, and any other band in the modern folk genre. But make no mistake; they definitely have a sound of their own. If the rest of Debutantes & Dealers is anything like Blood & Bone, these rascals could have a hit on their hands." 4.5/5 Stars
- Jessica Shalvoy, Ellenwood-EP.com
"There are many things separating VE from the crowded field of new folksters and one of them is groove... Sander Vinberg's upright bass and Bryce Gourley's drums are going to drag you to the dance floor while you get your folk on and that's a good thing because you can claim it's the sweat making your eyes sting rather than the pedal steel of Matt Teske. "
- Josh Hathaway, Blinded By Sound
"...the talented folk, rock, country, and blues band Vaudeville Etiquette will certainly give a worthy performance with their floor-stomping energy and vibrant stage presence. "
- Seattle Metropolitan Magazine
"Tayler Lynn and Bradley Laina are a singing-songwriting powerhouse, and Tayler in particular plays a soul-stirring trumpet kazoo. Yes, that is a real instrument, and she OWNS it. If you want to feel good inside, this is the band."
- Barrett Martin, Producer/ Musician (Screaming Trees, Mad Season, Walking Papers)
"[Vaudeville Etiquette] pulls off up-lifting without cloying, which being the joyless, black-hearted sheriff of the fun-police that I am, I appreciate."
- Shaun Kardinal, Artist (http://shaunkardinal.com/)
"Mississippi backwoods music strung together with pop, rock, and harmonious vocals does not even begin to describe the Seattle-based band, Vaudeville Etiquette. To say the least, their music is anything but expected."
- Christy Wolyniak, Ballard Tribune
