Part of the May LAMPLIGHTER SESSIONS: |
"PETER MULVEY is one of the most accomplished guitarists you're ever likely to hear utterly original it is nigh on impossible to explain him to the uninitiated his intelligent and sometimes complex songs engage both hemispheres of the listener's brain one of the finest, most complete entertainers stunning." - The Irish Examiner
SIMON BALTOs work has garnered praise from critics both local, regional, national, and international. The Irish music publication Deadly Music! has compared his songwriting to top-of-his-game, Blood on the Tracks-era Dylan. The Chicago-based music curator Music Means Family said the following: An unbelievable talent, his layered folk ballads are reminiscent of Baez and Dylan, Guthrie and Prine. There is a deeply satisfying componentto each of his songs a reminder of home, woodsmoke, and the first traces of your breath as winter begins to settle.
Combining a wintry longing with the warmth of a familiar folktale, HUMBIRD stretches between experimental folk and environmental Americana to embrace the unexpected. This music invites a refreshing dissonance into the house, it leaves breadcrumbs along the path and reflects light back at the stars.
Humbirds companion EPs Elsewhere and Where Else were released in summer 2017. Both collections explore themes of the human body within various environments and showcase minimalist soundscapes, looping, and extended vocal techniques to create an otherworldly, though familiar sound rooted in folk music traditions.
Artist-in-residence SATCHEL PAIGE adds his heartfelt compositions to this mix.
