RYLEY WALKER (vs, with band!)
De Heer Walker R. speelt gitaar, zingt en doet de geest herleven van groten als Nick Drake, John Fahey en Bert Jansch.
"With a powerful voice that spans ranges and eras, and an effortless approach to a fine melody on the guitar, Ryley Walker sets the bar higher for the modern folk artist. The 24 year-old recently turned to his folk-rock sound, inspired by some of his heroes Bert Jansch, Tim Buckley, and Tim Hardin. After kicking around Chicago’s experimental free/noise music scene and touring extensively with an array of artists, he grew into his current laid-back and folk-driven approach to tunes, resulting in several cassettes, singles, and a highly acclaimed EP The West Wind. His poised and accomplished debut LP All Kinds Of You, is due out April 2014 on the seminal Tompkins Square label. With a stellar backing band, Walker brings a swift sound that recalls the golden eras of folk, lush with soul."
DANIEL BACHMAN (vs)
De heer Bachman D. speelt gitaar en "Psychedelic-Appalachian-Folk" op zichzelf, maar in de traditie van o.a John Fahey en Jack Rose.
".. a 6-string fingerstyle and lap guitar player from Virginia currently living in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. From 2008 to present he’s been releasing material of almost exclusively an instrumental nature while touring everywhere from Istanbul to Los Angeles. The album Orange Co. Serenade will be coming out in the spring through Bathetic Records and is Daniel’s strongest work as a player and writer yet. Back to a minimal approach with little to no overdubs and sparse accompaniment, the album is solely about the tension and release between each song. From the most ecstatic blurry moment to the loneliest thud on the gut string it will help you explore the best and worst parts of yourself. Daniel continues touring steadily in support of his upcoming album release. Daniel's music has been celebrated by fans and critics alike with coverage from NPR, Pitchfork, Aquarium Drunkard, The Fader, and Folk Radio UK."
