Builder of the House is the Portland, ME based Indie Folk outfit comprised of Robert Cimitile and Elliot Heeschen. The group’s first EP I am a Tidal Wave is rooted in folk and bluegrass, yet each song is augmented by its own unique element, such as ethereal glockenspiel, haunting vocal effects, or barbershop quartet. The group’s eclectic sound, which varies from sparse acoustic guitar to full orchestral arrangements, has at its core Rob Cimitile’s strong songwriting. Their upcoming EP has an expanded full band sound born out of collaborations with other artists in the Portland music scene, who appear on the record. 

Builder of the House has been featured on SoundCloud, Reverb Nation, and the CD Baby DIY Musician blog. They can be seen performing in Portland and around the Northeast.
