Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives, its celebrations and despairs, landmines and blindsides and upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search for ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty. Born into a family of professional musicians, he made his mark by mixing the best of punk, roots rock and Americana, and refusing to look back.
Allison Russell’s clear, strong voice wraps around the broken country-soul croon of JT Nero, delivering their tales of hope, despair and… seahorses. Echoes of mountain gospel, doo wop and classic soul, with back porch instrumentation. Two of the most compelling new voices in American music.
