Dead Winter Carpenters
Emerging from Northern California’s fertile music scene, Dead Winter Carpenters is a rollicking, high-energy, roots-infused five-piece band from North Lake Tahoe, CA.
Defying musical boundaries, DWC blends elements of rock’n’roll, folk, roots, country, ragtime, blues, and reggae music with choice influences ranging from throughout rock
history and the traditional fiddle tunes of earlier times. This combination of authentic songwriting and dynamic musicianship gets the hips shakin’ and feet dancin’, epitomizing what a great live music experience is all about.
Poised with an arsenal of original material and an unyielding tour schedule, Dead Winter Carpenters is captivating audiences throughout the country and rapidly gaining a rabid fanbase.
The five-piece outfit consists of fiddler Jenni Charles, upright bassist Dave Lockhart, guitarists Jesse Dunn and Sean Duerr, and drummer Ryan Davis.
Joining them on the 28th will be multi-instrumentalist Jeff Hobbs, bassist Marc Friedman, and Jordan Feinstein on Hammond organ!
Lonesome Locomotive is driven by remarkable songs that cut across genres and pull on many different emotional strings to create a sound that is layered, direct, and poignant. The music has a feeling of being instantly classic, fresh and danceable all at once. LL steams into jams, but is not a jam band. Their improvisations benefit from the superb musicianship of lead guitarist Brian Byrnes and bass master Mike Meagher, and are hoisted up by the driving rhythms of drummer Erin Cassidy and guitarist Michael Rosen. Together they achieve a sound that is stripped down, yet rich and strong.
Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah
I always sang when I was a kid in Ohio, never thought I would be a singer. I wasn’t raised in the church, but I loved gospel music, black music, emotion, songs brought about by hard times, the blues, dust bowl ballads, lonesome country, and mind expansion.
Not knowing how to play an instrument, but knowing how to sing, I began singing in clubs and taught myself the harmonica listening to the greats--Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, and James Cotton. But that was in Ohio, seems like a long time ago. I ended up in San Francisco and after arriving, my music evolved. I taught myself how to work an 8 track recorder and started coming up with new songs. I found myself close to my influences--the Summer of Love, the Dead, Neil Young, and Altamont , where the Summer of Love ended with the Stones and Gram Parsons & The Flying Burrito Brothers… who had long sparked my interest in the High Desert of Southern California where I took my music shortly after arriving.
I headed down to a village called Joshua Tree--a strange, wasted land of rock mountains, spiritual magnets, and purple sunsets. In the 60’s and 70’s people used to go out there and take psychedelic drugs and sink into the land, into themselves….still do I guess. Some wonderful musicians down in Joshua Tree have added things to my songs, and for that I am blessed. I have been compiling these songs, recording in the desert and in San Francisco.... I hope you like them.
