The Silks are a rock and roll band out of Providence, Rhode Island. You could say The Silks are THE rock and roll band from Providence, but then you wouldnt exactly be asking the cool kids. Youd need to dig a bit deeper than trends. The Silks exist outside of The Hips bearded rat race.
The sound is classic power trio of the blues-based variety. You know, The Devils music. Youve got guitar pyrotechnics galore from frontman Tyler-James Kelly. Chicken-pickin or taking a soaring lead break, its quickly apparent Kellys on a wholenother level. It makes you wonder just when did he get his first real six-string. Then theres the voice. Ballsy, bluesy, however you want to describe it, it just sounds like ripping a telephone book in half and feels like scratching a really good itch. The rhythm section of Sam Jodrey on drums and Jonas Parmelee on the bass guitar chug-chugs and chop-chop-chops along. Fast songs, slow songs, it doesnt matter. Its always all about the dance floor. The dance floor reciprocates.
After releasing their Paul Westerberg produced debut album, Last American Band at the tail end of 2013, The Silks continued building on their following with constant gigs. All kinds of gigs. With a work ethic as old-school as their whole vibe, most of their shows are of the all nighter variety. Two sets. An hour and a half each. Only, they're playing original music. Who does that these days? As of now, The Silks are dangerously close to releasing the follow-up album they have in the can. Their new record, Turn Me On, was released in August 2016! In December 2016, The Silks were awarded a Boston Music Award for Best Blues Act!
