On Tuesday, January 20th 2009, Chris Pureka released her 2nd EP (her 4th album) Chimera. The project included live tracks from the last few years of Pureka's busy tour schedule and features guest appearances by Peter Mulvey, Girlyman and various side players that often accompany Pureka on stage.
Recent accolades from BILLBOARD MAGAZINE and The New York Times and consistent touring have kept Pureka in the public eye while she works on her 5th record, a full length due out at summer's end. Recent touring highlights include a well received support tour for Jay Brannan and a sold out summer show at Joes Pub in New York City. About Pureka's Official CMJ Showcase (NYC OCTOBER 2008) The New York Times said, An interviewer asked Chris Pureka to sum up her music as a haiku. I will: Folky sorrowful songs of loneliness and hurt, longing to reunite. Her tunes have the grave Appalachian flavor of Neil Young and Gillian Welch; her guitar playing is subdued but quietly virtuosic. And her voice can be a desolate whisper or a bitter accusation. Theres no comfort, for her, in the clarity of her observations. (Jon Parales)
Rusty Belle: Sometimes a walk with the Roma, a twisted tale in metered time, or a yell-along-after-dinner drunken opera. A dance band that tries to tie your shoes together. The music is littered with dented paint cans, smashed up trashcan lids, old hacksaw blades, and broken glass. Like junkyard songbirds, they sing sweet through all the rubbage.
