LAMPLIGHTER December 9
"PETER MULVEY is reaching for gold with his new record The Silver Ladder, produced by Chuck Prophet. "
The eclectic range of Mulvey's tireless past pays handsome dividends on this stylistically sweeping, LA-recorded album. A crack specially convened band (including regular Dylan drummer David Kemper) adhere to his well-established live and direct recording approach and allow the performer's deeply matured, naturally wry and hard-edged Americana to attain full, flowing life. From the raunchy melodic pop of "Sympathies" through suburban requiem "Remember the Milkman", the dizzying weirdness of "If You Shoot At A King" and even Led Zeppelin modal thunder on "Copenhagen Airport", Mulvey's troubled visions attain striking clarity. Gavin Martin, Uncut
"The cream of the crop sings with a clarity reserved for the likes of legends."
"Peter Mulvey is all substance, which is his style."
Blessed with having 2 more of Milwaukee's finest on this night's roster, fresh off a reunion of the R & B Cadets, a great band they were once in:
PAUL CEBAR songwriter, singer, guitarist with a penchant for African, Latin American, Caribbean, R & B, jazz, New Orleans etc. music
JOHN SIEGER prolific and excellent songwriter with a semi-country bent whose songs have impressed Dwight Yoakam, Jerry Harrison, The BoDeans, Robbie Fulks and Flaco Jimenez enough to record them
Raised among the ferns and the farmland of Northern Washington, lyric-driven songwriter ANNA TIVEL loved words long before they became the backbone of her music. After moving to Oregon in 2007, she slowly discovered the friendly music scene as a fiddle player, and soon after picked up the guitar and began to write. Her latest album was released in June 2014 on Portland's well-loved Fluff and Gravy Records. Anna is based in Portland, OR and spends her time reading and writing and touring and fiddling and watching her dog try to catch flies by the window.
"These are organic songs that freely reveal the poetry of the mind, heart, and soul, the sharp imagery of the world translated into sound." No Depression
"Anna's strength is that of a lyricist. Her songs are filled with lines that intrigue and haunt." David Steinberg
