Small Forest's roots stretch out from the beautiful Door County peninsula in Wisconsin. Songwriting team Jeanne Kuhns and Marybeth Mattson sing original tunes and obscure covers with bass-man Patrick Palmer, across the peninsula and throughout the Midwest.

We recorded our first band album "Dream" at Studio 330 in Sturgeon Bay, WI and released it into the world with a CD Release Concert in July of 2015.

Jeanne has released several albums over the last several years with a variety of musicians including her previous band, Lost Mothra. Her albums from earliest to most recent are "Riverbed," "Lost Moth: Found," "Ghost Ranch," and "Beautifully Strange," as well as a holiday album recorded with George Sawyn called "Mary's Lullaby." Kuhns also owns Lost Moth Gallery in Egg Harbor, WI where she shows her own acrylic and watercolor paintings as well as the work of guest artists.

In addition to playing bass and singing backup with Small Forest (and previously with Lost Mothra), Patrick Palmer owns and operates Wired For Sound Rentals out of Door County, WI, providing exceptional sound and sound-man services to gatherings, weddings, concerts and more.

Prior to joining Kuhns and Palmer and creating the new band, Small Forest, Mattson released her first album of all original music in 2012, entitled "Relative Hunger," with Patrick Palmer on bass and Dan Smrz on drums, and featuring Seth Raddatz on lead/electric guitar and Anna Sacks' harmonies on select tracks.
