Richard Buckner (Merge), Odawas
"There are three kinds of American folk artist: those who sit, contented, on a back porch contemplating America's landscape and ways; those for whom its landscape and ways are something to stand against or move boldly through; and those whose America is a shadowy, impressionistic place that moves inside of them. This [latter] is the area that the sombre-voiced Richard Buckner has been exploring since 1994." Sylvie Simmons, The Guardian
ODAWAS was founded by Isaac Edwards and Michael Tapscott in Bloomington, Indiana. Incorporating a love for film music and anything that sort of sounded like Neil Young, they developed ideas they couldn't really pull off. Since moving to Berkeley, California in 2008, they began incorporating a full time band for the first time. Connor Jon O'Sullivan, an old friend from Bloomington, now provides rich and round upright bass tones and the sounds of his cutting 12-string and baritone guitar. Odawas is the contemporary sound for the new adult.
