When Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as a "ming-blowingly good" (Greg Vandy, KEXP) "tutorial on classic country music" (Popmatters), Pinnell's debut immediately differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the states and celebrated radio sessions followed, cementing Pinnell's position as a no-fuss master of his craft.
His 2017 album Ties of Blood and Affection presents a canny lateral move. Instead of doubling down on the stark themes and values of his debut, this sophomore album finds Pinnell finding comfort in his own skin and achieving the redemption only hinted at in his previous batch of haunted songs. Here Pinnell joyfully embraces the working life, family obligations, and faith. His new stories delve into acceptance and survival, all the while investigating his most challenging chapter yet: adulthood. While "If life don't get any better / I'm alright with this" isn't an out-right triumph, it's an honest revelation.
You can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed directly to thick analog tape. Honest and careworn, Jeremy's voice can touch on wry, jubilant, and debauched - all in a single line. Ties of Blood and Affection offers a fair dose resolution to Jeremy's story. At his best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that anyone could do.
A new Seattle project led by singer-songwriter Mike Giacolino. featuring an all star line up with members of Rose Windows, Son Volt and Sera Cahoone. HYWAYS formerly performed as Ole Tinder.
There self titled, debut album pushes the boundaries of genres by seamlessly mixing country and psychedelia with indie rock, folk and prog rock.
Jake Payne and other members of the band Dixie Creek have formed Cascade Rye. Cascade Rye and finds a slightly different line-up to accommodate the new songwriting team. Payne is sharing the lead vocals and the rhythm guitar spot with Rich half the night, while playing his original instrument, the bass guitar for the other half of the night. Rich, in turn plays the drums for half of the night. The song writing duties are now also split between the two. The fortuitous meeting of these two musical minds came about by sheer accident. Rich originally joined Dixie Creek as a drummer after the band’s longtime percussionist exited the band. Unbeknownst to Payne was that his new drummer was a multi-talented and proficient songwriter and guitarist in her own right. That Rich and Payne’s voice blended so seamlessly in vocal harmony solidified the necessity for Rich to vacate her role as drummer and step up to the front of the stage. Cascade Rye continues to perform American Roots music supplanted with the colors and accents of mandolin/banjo/fiddle player Scott Eastburn, Guitar guru Xion Zoa, and bass player/drummer Nick Mittens. Watch them live and you might be surprised when instruments switch hands! Don't forget, having two lead singers, we will leave you feeling like you saw two great acts!
