Monday Morning Denial Bio

Drawing by Ellen Gabehart

Monday Morning Denial is a folk music duo featuring husband-and-wife songwriting team Kate Downing and Nathan Moore. Together, they craft and perform “underdog folk” songs that champion the struggles of everyday people to find hope in the midst of hard times.

Since 2007, Kate and Nathan have also been the main songwriters in the Eugene, Oregon-based folk band Low Tide Drifters.  They began playing shows as Monday Morning Denial in 2015 and released “Scoundrels That We Are,” a 5-song EP that is available for free download via Bandcamp.

Whether singing about working-class history, the Pacific Northwest, parenthood, or any number of other subjects, Kate and Nathan believe that folk music should always put forth the question that Florence Reece asked in 1931 when she penned her classic labor song–that is, “Which Side Are You On?”
