Paul Basile of Great Elk

"Music for falling in love in snowy weather" - The Deli

Paul Basile is the frontman and primary songwriter of the acclaimed Brooklyn indie-folk band Great Elk. In 2010 the band released their self-titled debut EP which garnered attention from Paste Magazine, Magnet Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and more. Great Elk quickly released another EP, entitled February in May 2011 and in June 2011 began work on their debut full length with engineer/producer D. James Goodwin (Norah Jones, The Bravery, Bobby). The highly anticipated new album, Autogeography, is in its final stages and due to be released in early 2012.

Together, this band really knows how to bring the house down. They have described their music as 'Foot-Stompin' Acoustic Bliss'..but let me elaborate: Personally, I think they have a really eclectic approach - it's a bit western-tinged, alt-country / Folsom-Prison-Blues-vibed charm with harmonic moments of magic... They have severe mojo and the talent to stand out. Their songwriting is thoughtful to a fault, every note and word is perfectly written, but their edges are loose and wild and their live shows feel like spontaneity took its top off and flashed your granny.
