Dust Bowl Faeries is an ethereal gothic folk band with a dark cabaret twist. The band was founded by artist musician Ryder Cooley in 2013. Ryder is accompanied by Karen Cole, Jen DuBois, and JoAnn Stevelos. Hazel, a taxidermy sheep, performs with the Dust Bowl Fairies as mascot spirit animal/go-go dancer. The unique compositions of Dust Bowl Faeries have roots in Gypsy, klezmer, and vaudeville music. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap steel, electric guitar and percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries' otherworldly sound.
