Stillhouse Junkies

Stillhouse Junkies

LIVE In The Radio Room! 

They don’t play like junkies... They sound great! 

— Ray Benson, Asleep at the Wheel


Stillhouse Junkies is a trio comprised of Alissa Wolf on fiddle and guitar, Cody Tinnin on bass and banjo, and Fred Kosak on guitar and mandolin. With all three band members sharing vocal duties and swapping instruments, the Junkies conjure a wide range of tonal landscapes that pay tribute to the iconic sounds of Gillian Welch, the Allman Brothers, Tim O'Brien, the Wood Brothers, John Hiatt, and countless others while breaking new musical ground with their genre-bending original material.


 Alissa began studying the violin at age 8. She followed her heart to numerous summer academies and has studied intensively through the Music in the Mountains Conservatory, the Sewanee Summer Music Festival, Meadowmount School of Music, the Mark O’Connor Fiddle Conference, and the Berklee College of Music Summer Programs. Inspired by attending local folk festivals such as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Alissa began exploring all types of music beyond classical including bluegrass, swing, and jazz. Through this she found her true passion – improvisation. While she attained a B.A. from the University of Puget Sound, she continued to play for the love of music.


 Cody Tinnin was born in Page, Arizona and moved to the Durango area in 2001. Influenced by his father, Glenn, Cody started playing trombone at a young age and developed an ear for jazz. Cody began playing bass guitar and quickly transitioned to upright. Through his uncle, Bruce Tinnin, Cody refined his bluegrass chops and gained an affinity for traditional American music. Cody joined the Outta Hand String Band in 2004 before following his culinary passions to Austin, Texas. While in Austin, Cody frequented the live music scene, refining his palate for outlaw country music at venues such as the Hole in the Wall and the White Horse Saloon. After close to a decade deep in the heart of Texas, Cody returned to the Durango area. 


Fred has been musically active since first taking up the guitar at age 15. Over his 12 years as a professional musician, he has played in numerous ensembles of varying styles and instrumentations, ranging from funk cover bands to intimate acoustic duets. Over the past 15 years, Fred has played mandolin and guitar with numerous New England and Colorado-based roots musicians and acts, including Billy Wylder, Three Tall Pines, Acousticana, Creek River String Band, Ethan Robbins (Cold Chocolate), Greg Lizst (Crooked Still), Zach Hickman (Josh Ritter), the Professors of Bluegrass from Yale University, the Badly Bent, and more. In addition to his facility with a broad range of musical styles, he is a seasoned performer with experience at major festivals and storied venues alike.
