Chris Brokaw / Margaret Airplaneman
Chris Brokaw is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer and film composer based in Boston. He was born in New York City and raised in the outlying suburbs. He attended Oberlin College, where he took exactly two music-related classes: Multi-track Recording and Steel Drumming.
Chris is perhaps best known for his work as the drummer in CODEINE and the guitarist in COME, who made several albums in the 1990's for the labels Sub Pop and Matador that are considered landmarks in American independent rock music.
Since 2001, Chris has focused primarily on his work as a solo artist, making numerous albums of vocal and instrumental music. This has ranged from full on rock ("Red Cities", "Incredible Love", "Gambler's Ecstasy") to explorations of the 6-string and 12-string acoustic guitars ("Canaris", "VDSQ Solo Acoustic Volume 3") to the experimental and abstract ("Tundra", "Gracias, Ghost of the Future","The Periscope Twins"). His 2017 cd "The Hand That Wrote This Letter" presents instrumental classical guitar versions of David Bowie and Prince songs. Throughout, Chris has maintained an active solo touring schedule in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, Australia and Russia.
Chris is proud to present his new solo LP "End Of The Night." It was released May 24, 2019 on VDSQ and tak:til/Glitterbeat.
Margaret Airplaneman is the guitar/singing half of the duo Mr. Airplane Man a band that blends hypnotic blues, haunting slide guitar, and idiosyncratic rock and roll with dreamy girlgroup melodies.
Mr. Airplane Man has toured with bands like Holly Golightly, Reigning Sound, JSBX, Detroit Cobras, White Stripes, The Gories, Morphine and Kid Congo.
Mr. Airplane Mans music has also been featured in a variety of TV shows, films, and skate videos, including multiple episodes of The L Word and the film Crazy Eyes.
A few years ago, Margaret moved to the West Coast and began exploring solo performance, experimenting with a loop pedal to create layered melodies over which she could play leads on her cigar box guitar.
A mishmosh of drone blues in the tradition of Jessie Mae Hemphill and Fred McDowell, the fuzzy rock n roll of the Velvets and Stooges, and love of Tuareg and Gnawa music, Margaret Airplaneman is at once a continuation of and new direction for Mr. Airplane Mans sound, taking listeners on a dreamy journey propelled by gritty psych blues guitar.
