The Easy Leaves
The Easy Leaves are very top of the Country heap here in San Francisco, headlining and filling big rooms (Great American Music Hall, The Independent, Mystic Theatre), main stage set at last year's Outside Lands Festival (Willie Nelson told them 'We should play together again'!), CMT premieres their videos ... But more to the point, they write, record, and perform incredible songs. Songs that are meticulously crafted, and have great capabilities of (just plain) moving people. Under the guidance of Merle Haggard's music, and countless other important poets, The Easy Leaves have written their own great collection of poetry for the common man.
The 78 Project, a documentary by Spike Lee's music supervisor currently on the festival circuit, recreating Alan Lomax's journey to capture important American Folk music on its home porches found, recorded, The Easy Leaves for their film (alongside
Rosanne Cash, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Loudon Wainwright III, Justin Townes Earl, Richard Thompson, John Doe of X, and other great talents). NPR, Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times have featured it, and The Smithsonian, Library of Congress, and the Alan Lomax estate are active advisors.
The Easy Leaves have been hired as sole support on shows and runs by Dwight Yoakam, Ry Cooder & Ricky Skaggs, Junior Brown, Robert Earl Keen, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Asleep At The Wheel, Kasey Chambers, Blind Boys of Alabama, Jim Lauderdale, Los Lobos, Langhorne Slim, and Lake Street Dive. The Easy Leaves are fantastic live!
Finally, they're grounded (Sonoma County farm boys), low key, classy, charismatic, and professional aka They're a joy to have over to your place.
