Chutes & Ladders is the brainchild of Baltimore-born songwriter and producer Brooke Jenkins. Taking inspiration from artists as varied as Mika, Fitz & The Tantrums, and Lana Del Rey, Jenkins combines elements of synth pop and alt-rock with her own musical instincts to create a cohesive patchwork of songs that land somewhere between Moon Taxi and Maggie Rogers. United by one voice in both a poetic sense and a literal one, Chutes & Ladders marries contrasting pieces in a fluid set brought to life by a band of Nashville transplants.
