“The Staveley-Taylor sisters possess the kind of voices that make able-bodied writers lose control of their capacity to avoid terms like ethereal, angelic, and otherworldly.”
Sisters Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor have previously supported both Bon Iver and The Civil Wars across North America, and are now touring as a full six-piece band. They will play songs taken from their critically-acclaimed 2012 debut and their latest release, the Justin Vernon-produced If I Was. Expect sublime English indie-folk with muscle, and at its center, three exceptional vocal talents capable of plunging any audience into awed silence.
MUSIKANTO walks the line between Indie-Blues and Urban Americana, while borrowing elements of Experimental Folk and Broken-down Orchestral music.
Growing up listening to his father's obscure folk & roots records he was taught music through the likes of Fraser and Debolt and Jerry Hahn.
With heartbreaking ballads and melodic melodrama, Musikanto's songs have the grind of a Chicago winter and the soul of a Midwestern bon-fire.. it's as sincere as it gets.
With an honest comparison, MUSIKANTO carries the lyrical weight of folks like Leonard Cohen, the back road sense of Leon Russelland the driving tone of Ray Lamontagne or Amos Lee. His narratives rattle the core of the human spirit leaving you feeling like an outsider who witnessed something very real.
After years of touring and writing, Musikanto set out to record his best record to date. Making countless drives from Chicago to Wisconsin and back, where he wrote and recorded at friend's house, he found the solitude of the drives peaceful and a perfect canvas for re-writing lyrics and peicing together instrumentation he heard in his head as he drove. These late night and early morning drives helped the songs evolved and gradually became unchangeable.
Every song has its own intrinsic ambiance, the vocals are transparent and there is very little overdubbing. An extremely personal and deep album.
It's a first person narrative where Musikanto pours his heart and soul, then it's perfectly quiet as he waits for his answers.
