Heretics Folk Club Presents: Cosmic Country Revue feat. Bobby Lee, Jeffrey Silverstein and Joe Harvey-Whyte
Bobby Lee trades in a wide screen brand of cosmic country-folk, full of space and pawn shop guitars. There are touches of JJ Cale’s analogue Americana, the swampy groove of Tony Joe White and Richard Thompson’s sinewy, modal guitar work. Amps hum in the warm afternoon sun, kids and dogs snooze on the grass and broken drum machines keep time with the universe…
Jeffrey Silverstein is a songwriter living in Portland, Oregon. You Become The Mountain (2020), his debut LP was described as ‘cosmic country with a gentle sweetness’ by NPR and drew comparisons to Bill Frisell/David Berman. In April of 2021 Silverstein released Torii Gates, a new EP of psych-folk songs celebrating the unknown, small joys, and learning to be comfortable with transition.
Joe Harvey-Whyte – Pedal Steel guitarist, composer and sound designer Joe Harvey-Whyte began making immersive soundscapes to help ease his insomnia and tinnitus. His debut solo LP, Flatland/Spaceland is 20 minutes of music that blurs the borderlines between ambient and neoclassical to create an engaging and meditative listening experience.
