    About

    Fishplate
    Singer/songwriter Grady Bell, formerly of Grotto Girl, originated Fishplate as a solo project and spent the summer of 2016 crafting Heavy Heart, a showcase of crystal clear, catchy alt-country candor, with Buncho bandmates Nick Corson (also of Pudge) and Duncan Troast, session drummer Pat Kelleher (also of Organized Crime), and the studio talents of Ross Farbe (Video Age, formerly Sun Hotel and Native America).

    Thomas Dollbaum
    Thomas Dollbaum was born and grew up in Tampa, Florida. In 2015, Thomas moved to New Orleans to study at the University of New Orleans for his master’s in poetry. While in New Orleans, Thomas worked as a carpenter and began writing the songs that eventually became Wellswood. The album was recorded over many sessions during the pandemic in New Orleans in an old hotel suite turned recording studio by friend and fellow musician Matthew Seferian. Thomas still resides there, running his own carpentry business.
