Comprised of lead vocalist Wendy Pate, guitarists Jason Okamoto and Scott Weddle, bassist Matt Voth, and drummer Richard Cuellar, the Flatirons are a distinctive and mesmerizing alternative country unit out of Portland, OR. Utilizing Pate's silky vocals and feedback master Okamoto's lead guitar work, the Flatirons create shadowy rural landscapes that place them in a category by themselves in the alternative country community. Their first album, Prayer Bones, was released in 1999 on Checkered Past records. ~ Matt Fink, Rovi
