The Whistles & The Bells
Whether it be The Louvin Brothers Satan is Real fire and brimstone notions or Wilcos Yankee Hotel Foxtrot more amoeba-like concepts- my favorite music is like life- with an unrelenting yet humble, take it or leave it approach. Violently delicate and poignantly excavating. And thats what I want to be when I grow up. A soul with a peep hole. This is my best attempt towards that kind of transparent liberation. I sincerely believe The Whistles & The Bells is the sound of something stranger and stronger than me prying the plywood off the windows of my little frame house. The echo of a tear-soaked .22 caliber bullet thru my trusty old foaming mouthed dog; silencing the barks of no trespassing at all who would wander near my rusty old gate. No doubt, this will either be my wax winged trip around the sun or my drowning sea. Those pages are left to be written.
Afforded oppurtunities to make records with dragons slayers as diverse as Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and boyhood hero/bluegrass giant Ricky Skaggs and, most recently, to be a touring partner with the thundering herd that is Mumford and Sons. Working mainly as front man for alternative/bluegrass quintet Cadillac Sky- it has been a musical life working above my skill set.
My new release, "Modern Plagues", nine numbers, birthed out of that proverbial kiln, and held thru the stained glass filter that is the engineering work of the legend in making-Vance Powell- is kind of my fourteen year old musical fantasy league- when I was chopping my Harmony mandolin and sawing my great uncles Verbens fiddle to Bill Monroe and Country Gazette LPs while chasing it with the more unnerving energy of Nirvanas Nevermind or Pearl Jams Ten.
