The Silks are a true grit rock and roll band out of Providence, Rhode Island. You could say The Silks are the rock and roll band from Providence. With two consecutive Boston Music Awards for Blues Artist of the Year 2016 and 2017 The Silks are well on their way to achieving a rightful place in rock n roll history, or at least folklore. Wait til you read the book, you cant make this sh*t up!
The Silks deliver honest sounds of the blues-based rock n roll variety. Youve got guitar pyrotechnics galore from frontman Tyler-James Kelly. Chicken-pickin or taking a soaring lead break, its quickly apparent Kelly is on a wholenother level. It makes you wonder just when did he get his first real six-string? Then theres the voice. 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.
I never wanted to be a solo artist, with a backing band, says Kelly. You can always get pros who can play behind you. But it doesnt have the organic feel of a band. I dont know what it is about playing with these cats. But we all totally lock in when we play. At the end of the day, were just a bunch of animals who want to rock. Its not a careerist thing. We got together so we could f*ckin play music together. Tyler-James Kelly
The Silks nail down the groove with its rhythm section of Uncle Sam Jodrey on drums, Jonas Parmelee on bass and Johnny Trama on rhythm and lead guitar. Fast songs, slow songs, it doesnt matter. For this humble group of seasoned players, its all about the dance floor, and with the right chemistry, the dance floor reciprocates.
