Acclaimed by fans & critics alike, prolific singer/songwriter Ellen Kempner​, aka Palehound, ​is known for sharing intimate meditations on love, gender, body image and self acceptance. ​Her most recent album, Black Friday, is a finespun exploration of all the forms that love can take: love between friends, love for people no longer in your life, love in the face of self-hate, love that endures through major life changes or through many tiny catastrophes. 

On stage, the band takes audiences on a ​cathartic ​journey ​of exhilarati​on, ​empowerment and community​, whether headlining or opening for such idols as Courtney Barnett, The Breeders, Mitski, ​Big Thief, ​Japanese Breakfast, ​Jay Som ​and others.​ 

"Palehound’s Ellen Kempner has spent the past four years building up one of the most distinct styles in indie rock." - Rolling Stone, "Song You Need to Know"

“Palehound's Ellen Kempner has established herself as a prolific and distinguished voice in indie rock, winning over fans with her razor-sharp technique and poignant lyricism.” - NPR

“Worthy,” finds Kempner at a crossroads in a relationship hampered by her own self-doubt.” 

- Pitchfork (track review)
