JESSE BURDICK AND THE GRAND REPUBLIC
In a world beset by worries and woes, the need for plain and honest music is more evident than ever before. Music that tells a story, gets you moving and moved, and above all is one large group of friends playing it wherever and whenever they can...which is why Jesse Burdick and his Grand Republic are forming up to facilitate that need! The journey continues ever on, and Jesse is now venturing forth into the murkier waters of Americana, Acoustic Rock, and maybe even a little bit of that elusive old-time sound...Dark and gritty, soaring and harmonious, and always in fashion, Jesse's music is sure to please the discerning listener. The Grand Republic itself is a confederation of people and groups that Jesse enjoys playing with and are joining together with the sole purpose of ensuring the growth and prosperity of truly great American music...alright, maybe with a little of that old world flare....It is an ever changing and evolving line-up that will provide the backdrop for the journey into the deeper waters of this musical conflux....
Chasing Blue's, Low Valley "is a superb record, worthy of the attention of anyone interested in where the next generation of acoustic string artists are taking our beloved bluegrass music" - John Lawless, Bluegrass Today
Formed in the fall of '08 at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Chasing Blue plays a mix of original and traditional bluegrass material with unique arrangements and hard-driving style. Original material holds true to the bluegrass tradition but strong lyrical ideas and progressive musical ideas make the Chasing Blue sound.
Acousticana plays American roots music on acoustic instruments. Bluegrass, Tex- Mex, folk, country, gospel, Cajunit's all here, tastefully informed by soul, blues, rock, pop, world music, and other contemporary influences. New music with an old feel.
