Paddy Saul Band
In the five years since releasing his debut album, One Town Tasted, Paddy Saul has garnered plenty of press and airplay in Boston, the Northeast and his homeland Ireland. Says Camille Pandian of Theâ€¨ Somerville News, â€śHeâ€™s a rising Irish rock starâ€¦Saulâ€™s music is gripping, highly original and powerfully eclectic.â€ť
His latest release, The Way The Blood Flows was mixed by Grammy award winning Ducky Carlisle. It showcases Paddyâ€™s signature strumming and features mandolin, fiddle, horns, and piano in a combination of foot stomping anthems and ethereal ballads. The album also includes a life-affirming collaboration Paddy enjoyed with Irish musical legend, Liam Ă“ MaonlaĂ of the Hothouse Flowers. Paddy was fortunate enough to record â€śRock and Rollâ€ť from his forthcoming release with support of Liam and the tune echoes the mystical touch that Liam brings to every endeavor.
Paddy can be seen throughout Boston, the Northeast and Ireland, playing solo shows or with his full band. He has kept close ties with his Irish roots sharing the stage with Liam Oâ€™Maonlai (Hothouse Flowers), Bell X1, Juliet Turner, Mundy, Steve Wall (front man with The Stunning and The Walls), Don Baker and Mark Geary, to name a few. Heâ€™s also worked with Engineer Pete Weiss (Aimee Mann, Charlie Chesterman, Vic Chestnutt) who says, â€śOne of the best voices Iâ€™ve ever had the pleasure of committing to tape.â€ť
Paddy is looking forward to the next chapter; and those who have heard The Way The Blood Flows believe it is his best recording to date.
Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck
Bow Thayer has been singing and writing songs for as long as he can remember. Making music is who he is. He incorporates it into all he does while always living up to his â€śreputation as a sublimely gifted artistâ€ť with the rare â€śability to write new material that sounds like an instant stringband classic.â€ť
Bow made a name for himself in Boston with 7 League Boots, a rock/reggae band that shared the stage with the likes of Fugazi, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Pearl Jam. Fifteen years ago he made a life-altering decision to leave the city for the Green Mountains of Vermont. It was there that he explored the Delta Blues playing slide guitar for the original Elbow and began a relationship with the banjoâ€”both in the bluegrass group, The Benders, and on his ownâ€”that continues to this day.
His current group, Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck, is in the process of recording their third record (tentatively titled â€śEdenâ€ť) with Grammy-winning engineer Justin Guip. Comprised of a failed painter, some lousy carpenters, and a piano tuner, these acclaimed artists cultivate progressive yet soulful mountain music for the general public's consumption in the hills of Vermont with an electric banjo, various other string instruments, used parts found in drums, and a keen eye for the human condition.
Bow aims to forge new sonic frontiers and Perfect Trainwreck (which one writer suggests â€świll become Vermont's third nationally acclaimed rock bandâ€ť) carries that vision to far off destinations. Having played with such music luminaries as Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Booker T, and Ringo Starr, the band has seen its fair share of travel across these United States of America and the World at large and plan to do more while supporting their records of facts, analogies and metaphors.
They have been known to throw one hell of a party, too. Maybe you have heard of Tweed River Music Festival? Bow and his band of brothers devote their lives to spreading music wherever they go and hope you have the chance to catch an earful.
Glenn Yoder and the Western States
Like Neil Young and Alejandro Escovedo, Yoder glides between guitar-driven rock and folk-tinged acoustic balladry.
