WE ARE

NELL MAYNARD

& THE AMPERSANDS

NellMaynard_Ampersands_background_tall.jpg
 

Nell Maynard & the Ampersands found each other organically in the spring of 2016, drawn together from different corners of the San Francisco music scene by a common love of honest songs and throwing a great show.

An evolving songwriter since her teens, Nell Maynard writes with brutal honesty about being queer, navigating adult relationships, existentialism, and, of course, sometimes even happy feelings. Rachel Schmitz, a multi-instrumentalist, lends her drumming and vocal ability, shaped by her own versatile songwriting and love for layered harmonies. David Kellerman, also a witty songwriter and player of many instruments, brings keyboard with influences from jazz to swing to 80s pop, and remembers fondly his time in a David Bowie tribute band. Alex Trost calls on years in Massachusetts, where playing primarily in a Klezmer band has contributed to melodic electric bass-playing.

Together, the quartet proudly prioritizes fun and connection at live shows. They are working toward a winter 2016 release of their debut EP.
