capitol steps mwb music without borders

Over 30 years ago, a group of Senate staffers set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them.

The Capitol Steps have since recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, Make America Grin Again. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy?!

Dimmer Twins:

Mike Cooley & Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers

Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 8PM at the Tarrytown Music Hall

dimmer twins mwb music without borders

Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, a.k.a. the “Dimmer Twins,” formed the Drive-By Truckers in Athens, Georgia in 1996, though their musical collaboration began in the ’80s with the fledgling band Adam’s House Cat. The name Dimmer Twins is a nod to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who are sometimes known as the “Glimmer Twins.” This stripped-down duo setting features original solo and duo material penned by both Hood and Cooley, and also some Drive-By Truckers songs that they’ve written.

Boasting a mix of Southern pride and erudite lyrics, Drive-By Truckers became one of the most well-respected Alternative Country-Rock acts of the 2000s. The band has long held a progressive fire in their belly having always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience.

History, folklore, politics, and character studies all shared equal space in the Drive-By Truckers’ catalog, which offered up its first blast of gutsy, twangy rock with 1998’s Gangstabilly. However, it was the band’s ambitious double-disc concept album, The Southern Rock Opera, that became its unlikely magnum opus. A two-act affair, the album explored Hood’s fascination with 70s Southern Rock while tackling the cultural contradictions of the region, and it helped lay the groundwork for much of the band’s later work.

MWB music without borders John Pizzarelli

World-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has been hailed by the Boston Globe for "reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz."

Established as one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Pizzarelli has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim and The Beatles.

While plenty of jazz greats influenced his work - Benny Goodman, Les Paul, Zoot Sims, Clark Terry and Slam Stewart, among others - Nat King Cole has been Pizzarelli's hero and foundation over the last 25 years. He devoted two albums to Cole's music, Dear Mr. Cole in 1994 and P.S. Mr. Cole, recorded and released five years later.

In 2019, Pizzarelli will celebrate Nat King Cole's centennial with a national tour.

Roger McGuinn MWB Music Without Borders

As the founder of The Byrds, Roger McGuinn is firmly established as an indisputable industry icon. From his signature 12-string Rickenbacker sound, to his instantly recognizable vocals on hits like “Turn, Turn, Turn,” “Eight Miles High” and “Mr. Tambourine Man,” Roger McGuinn didn’t just make music; he made history.

“Music would be a very different place if it hadn’t been for Roger McGuinn.” -Rolling Stone

Roger McGuinn was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scenes when he co-founded the group that would become the Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, Roger toured and performed with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director on Judy Collins #3. In 1973, the legendary Byrds disbanded and Roger McGuinn went on to make five solo albums with Columbia Records, and continued to tour.

In 1995 Roger McGuinn began The Folk Den Project. He records and uploads a traditional Folk song to his website www.Mcguinn.com as an effort to preserve traditional songs. Each month a different song is added to the site accompanied with lyrics and chords for free download.

Today, Roger McGuinn offers shows that are as mesmerizing and magical as ever. He delivers the gift of an evening with a master that is as intimate as it is spellbinding. He’ll take you along a journey of story and song, populated by the “old friends” you expect to hear, as well as new acquaintances from the folk music that Roger so passionately embraces. This Grammy Award-winning artist tours the world delighting audiences with the songs and stories from his long and continually productive musical career.

The Indigo Girls MWB Music Without Borders

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s. 

The power of unity, both in music and in life, has been an Indigo Girls calling card ever since they burst into the spotlight with their 1989 self-titled breakout album. Since then, the band has racked up a slew of Gold and Platinum records, taken home a coveted GRAMMY Award, and earned the respect of high profile peers and collaborated from Michael Stipe to Joan Baez. NPR’s Mountain Stage called the group “one of the finest folk duos of all time” while Rolling Stone said “they personify what happens when two distinct sensibilities, voices, and worldviews come together to create something transcendentally its own.”   The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Both on and off the stage, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

The High Kings are charting a new course for Irish ballad music - equal parts rousing and reflective, energetic and insightful.

Ten years ago, four Irish singers, performers and songwriters decided to take a calculated risk. The heyday of ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners was a distant memory for generations of music fans, and they knew that they would have to boldly go where no other Irish ballad group had gone before.

"People were looking for guys with character & presence - not just cardboard cut-outs," says band member Darren Holden. "We knew within the space of a few songs that there was magic," and audiences agreed. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2008, reached number two on Billboard Magazine's World Music chart.

2017's "Decade-Best of the High Kings" CD & current Decade World Tour are a joyous trip down Memory Lane, to the music and song of yesteryear, this time performed in a contemporary style and arrangement which still remains true to the original. Here's to the next ten years . . . Here's to The High Kings .

Aaron Neville Duo Music Without Borders MWB

Until now, it's been easy to separate Aaron Neville's career into two separate but equal strains: the funky stuff he's favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he's punching his own time card as a solo artist. Casual fans might admit they don't know much -- to borrow a phrase -- about Neville's musical center, but they've perceived a certain split in his career. An education is about to be provided, then, in the form of Apache, a solo album that makes the case for Aaron Neville as the most holistic of soul men. Its hard R&B side matches anything the Neville Brothers ever recorded for true grit, while still allowing plenty of space for a singer who's arguably the most distinctive vocal stylist on the planet to tell it like it is.

Apache also reflects Neville's social and spiritual concerns, marking only the second time in his 56-year recording career that he's co-written nearly an entire album's worth of material. The words are straight out of a poetry journal he began keeping in the 1970s, which more recently migrated to his iPhone. Together with collaborators Eric Krasno (guitarist for the groups Soulive and Rustic) and Dave Gutter (frontman for the Rustic Overtones), Apache is a modern/revivalist marvel harking back to a golden age that produced classics like Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On.

"I call it The Other Side of Aaron," says the 75-year-old legend, offering an alternative album title, "because people know me from doing the ballads and New Orleans stuff. They're getting another feel of Aaron" -- a record that touches on the mystic gumbo of "Yellow Moon" and sheer sweetness of "Everybody Plays the Fool" while diverging toward a third path we've never quite heard from Neville in the studio.

While Neville sometimes tours with his quintet, this is a smaller, more intimate show that features Neville and keyboard player Michael Goods. "I like the energy of the quintet," he says, "and I also like the laid-back quality of the duo, just coming off the top of my head with things, not having to worry about whether we rehearsed it. Sometimes I put Michael on the spot, because I'll come up with something he's never heard before, but then he'll catch it and that will make it even cooler. I bring the audience back to where I first started, with some Nat King Cole or anything that comes to my mind..."

And that mind is constantly racing, musically, just as it was in the days when the teachers would catch him deep in a distracted schoolboy reverie. "Because I've got about 10 million songs in my head. Some of 'em wake me up at 3:00 in the morning, and I've got to sing the whole song to myself before I can get back to sleep, to make sure I know all the words," he laughs. His middle-of-the-night song insomnia can make for his next audience's dream come true.

John Oates MWB Music Without Borders

John Oates is one-half of the best-selling duo of all time, Daryl Hall & John Oates, as well as a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Now he has teamed up with a number of accomplished Americana musicians, known as The Good Road Band, to deliver his sixth solo album, Arkansas (Thirty Tigers).

The album pays homage to the state’s beautiful countryside and Oates’ interest in early American music. Beginning as a tribute to Oates’ musical idol, Mississippi John Hurt, the project evolved during a series of Nashville recording sessions into a unique, retrospective collection that drew from a wide range of Oates’ creative influences. John Oates’ critically acclaimed album is out now.

 “My uncle Tony, after World War II, moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas and lived there for the rest of his life. I went there to visit him,” says Oates, saying that the wide-open landscape captivated him as a youngster. Then, on a recent trip back to the area, inspiration struck. “I stood at night out in the middle of the cotton fields all along the banks of the Mississippi River and it was one of the most beautiful moments that I’ve ever experienced, with the moonlight shining on the white cotton, and I just thought, ‘Man, this is so American, in a way.'” Oates soon put pen to paper. “I went back to Nashville, and the next day I just wrote the song. It just came out of me.”

Rolling Stone hailed Arkansas as one of the Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2018. In addition, the publication said the album “pays tribute to the voices that became before him… shining a light not only on the state’s countryside, but its contributions to country music, too.”

“Listening to the sonic flavors of Arkansas is akin to a visit to a museum where the early history of music is on display – whether that genre be Country, Blues, or Rock.” – Billboard

Arkansas may be Oates’ very best album simply because the music is so much a part of him that he can deliver it with a simple intensity that evokes a range of feelings in the listeners.” – No Depression

Wainwright Music Without Borders MWB

Three Landmark favorite singer-songwriters return for an evening of thoughtful songs and plenty of familial harmonies. The All in a Family concert includes Grammy Award winner Loudon Wainwright III and acclaimed songwriters Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Loudon Wainwright III has a history of success in multiple creative outlets. In 2010 he won the Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project, and his 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR's Top 10 Albums of the Year. His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison.

Loudon's 26th album, 2016's Haven't Got the Blues (Yet)--or HGTB(Y), for short -- is a 14-song, genre-bounding set ("eclectricity," he calls it) dealing with varied subject matter including depression, drinking, senior citizenship, gun control, heartbreak, pet ownership and New York City's arcane practice of alternate side-of-the-street parking.

Wainwright has also starred on TV in M.A.S.H. and Undeclared, and on Broadway in Pump Boys and Dinettes. Most recently, he appeared in Soderbergh's film Mosaic, and has been performing a one-man theatrical show, Surviving Twin, which combines his songs and the writings of his late father: Initially developed as part of University of North Carolina's Playmakers series, Surviving Twin focuses on fatherhood -- both being a father and having one -- and also explores the issues of birth, self-identity, loss, mortality, fashion, and of course, pet ownership.

Suzzy Roche's career in music began when she and her two sisters founded The Roches, a vocal group known for their rich harmonies, quirky lyrics, and casually comedic stage performances, which still performs today. An acclaimed singer songwriter in her own right, Suzzy has recorded two solo albums. She has written two books, appeared in on screen (Crossing Delancey) and has taught at NYU and Princeton. After a lifetime of performing and recording, these days Suzzy enjoys singing on the road with her daughter Lucy Wainwright Roche. Lucy & Suzzy recorded their first CD Fairytale and Myth which won the popular vote for best singer/songwriter album of the year at the Independent Music Awards in 2014 and released their second recording Mud & Apples in 2016.

Lucy Wainwright Roche is the daughter of singer-songwriters Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche, and the half-sister of singer-songwriters Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright. Initially bypassing the family career to teach, Lucy later made the decision to pursue music full-time. In 2008 she was one of the winners of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's "Emerging Artist" competition, and the following year, her song Snare Drum earned her the Independent Music Award for Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song. Roche released her debut album, Lucy, in October 2010.

he Willie Nile Band with Very Special Guest James Maddock

Willie Nile and James Maddock are an incredible pairing of Roots Rock singer-songwriters.

Willie Nile has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: "His live performances are legendary."

The New York Times called Willie Nile "one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years." His album Streets Of New York was hailed as "a platter for the ages" by Uncut magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Onesas one of the "Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011" and BBC Radio called it "THE Rock 'N Roll album of the year." His single from that album, "One Guitar," was the "Top Pick of the Week" in USA Today.
Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises.

His album, American Ride, won "Best Rock Album of the Year" at the Independent Music Awards. It appeared on dozens of year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 and was voted "Album Of The Year" at Twangville Magazine. Bono called it, "One of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America."
In November 2014 Willie Nile released a new album of piano-based songs, If I Was A River, to universal critical acclaim. "One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years" said The New Yorker. Uncut called him "the unofficial poet laureate of New York City."


The best singer-songwriters serve the song. James Maddock, the "songwriter's songwriter," has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, and has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way.

Since 1999, James Maddock's boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct Folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase engaged and generous enough to fan fund the last two entries in his six-album oeuvre. He's performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and has built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast US to Europe to Australia

Parsonfield Sawyer Fredericks Music Without Borders

Parsonsfield is a western Massachusetts based quintet praised for making "the most jubilant and danceable indie roots music this side of the Carolinas" (NPR). Catch them onstage any night and the band's joy is palpable. They trade instruments, share microphones, and shoot each other big grins. They sing in tight multi-part harmonies, their voices blending like they've been doing this together all their lives. That's because Parsonsfield is a family band, not by birth but by choice.

Parsonsfield have been added to Folk Pop, Fresh Folk, Roots Rising and Indie Bluegrass playlists on Spotify, alongside artists like Joseph, The Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and The Head And The Heart.

Sawyer Fredericks, the 18 year old Singer-songwriter hailing from his family's farm in central New York State, is fast establishing himself as an authentic, original, Americana artist with an old soul. His deep, beyond-his-years lyrics and melodies, raw, soulful vocals, and powerful live performances have attracted an ever growing number of devoted fans of all ages, selling out shows throughout the US.

As a folk/blues singer-songwriter, who cut his teeth at local farmers markets, open mics, and iconic New York venues like Caffe Lena, the Towne Crier Cafe, and The Bitter End, Sawyer seemed an unlikely match for reality tv, but quickly won over broad audiences with his genuine delivery and unique arrangements of classic songs, going on to win season 8 of NBC's The Voice.

POCO

Rising from the ashes of Buffalo Springfield, Poco was founded in 1967 by Rusty Young, Richie Furay, George Grantham and Jim Messina. Over the next five decades, alongside bandmates that would also include Paul Cotton, Randy Meisner, and Timothy B. Schmit, Rusty became not only the musical core of the band but also the writer and vocalist behind hits including ‘Rose Of Cimarron’ and the #1 smash “Crazy Love’. “I made a promise to myself that Poco would only keep going if we remained a band of real musicians who were having fun,” Rusty says. Because audiences can tell the difference.”

We all feel like we’ve landed on a combination of people and a situation that gives us a lot of satisfaction,” agrees longtime bassist Sundrud, whose pre-Poco stints included bass/vocals for Dickey Betts, Nicolette Larson, Vince Gill and Bobby Whitlock, songwriter for Kenny Rogers, Ty Herndon and The Judds, and co-founder of the celebrated progressive country band Great Plains. “Poco has always blazed a trail musically,” he says. “The band was on the forefront of getting country and rock to work together organically. I'm proud to be part of Poco, and today we’re all focused on keeping Poco vibrant and new.”

At the end of the day, bands survive and flourish on their chemistry,” says Lonow, who was a former member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Jamie Hartford Band, The Bellamy Brothers and Burrito Deluxe, played on Grammy nominated/winning albums by June Carter Cash, Billy Joe Shaver and Loretta Lynn, and was co-writer of Poco’s 1989 smash ‘Call It Love’. “Rusty is still the voice that everyone recognizes from the hits and he can still play his ass off. Jack has been in the band since 1985 and his vocals and bass playing are key to the Poco sound. Michael brings a musicianship that has redefined the band’s energy. When we want, we can turn any song into a really amazing country-rock odyssey.”

For the band’s legion of longtime fans – known as ‘Poconuts’ – as well as new converts, it’s Poco’s live performances where their newfound attitude and energy truly goes next level. “We challenge each other everytime we’re onstage,” says Rusty, “which means that no two shows are ever alike. Between Michael and I, we play 10 different instruments and are able to open up some musically adventurous journeys.” Webb is proud that audiences have enthusiastically embraced the band’s new approach. “We still play all the hits that fans love and we love playing them – but our emphasis is no longer on duplicating the catalog,” he says. “Rusty is a great writer and singer, but he’s first and foremost a really imaginative musician. And his musicianship is becoming a focus again.” Alongside hits like ‘Crazy Love’, ‘A Good Feelin’ To Know’, ‘Rose Of Cimarron’, ‘Call It Love’, ‘Heart Of The Night’ and ‘Keep On Tryin’’, songs from the acclaimed 2013 album All Fired Up are now concert favorites. Best of all, the band’s incendiary instrumental jams have become an organic throwback to Poco’s legendary ‘70s performances. ”There are a lot of people seeing the band for the first time, or for the first time in 10 years,” says Sundrud. “And they tell us that Poco is just a great rock & roll experience.”

Yet another bonus of the band’s rebirth is the growing recognition of Poco as godfathers of the roots movement. “Poco, at its core, is an early example of what could be described as Americana,” No Depression said in 2014; “a roots rock band that melded genres in the process of creating something new and exciting.” Rusty arguably the most influential steel player in rock & roll history was inducted into Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Gallery Of Greats’ in 2012, and Michael, Jack, and Rick are in-demand session players for artists that include Sturgill Simpson, Chris Knight, Ryan Bingham, Jamey Johnson and Zac Brown Band. “Artists like Buffalo Springfield, Gram Parsons, The Band and Poco wrote the blueprints for the Americana movement,” Lonow says. “They were a bunch of longhaired hippie rockers who couldn’t deny their love of steel guitar and harmonies. Americana began as folk and country-rock, and Americana fans tend to also be Poco fans.”

“We don’t feel like a 50-year old band,” Rusty Young says with pride. “Poco has never slowed down or stopped making new music. Everyone loves the challenge of being in Poco, and we’re all working hard at moving the band towards new audiences. We love playing for people who haven’t heard Poco in a while – or are maybe hearing them for the first time – and having them discover who Poco is today.”

For Poco, this is more than just a time of rebirth. On record and onstage, it’s the sound of a legendary band once again hitting its stride.

JJ Grey Music Without Borders

From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Greyremains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey live -- and you truly, absolutely must -- the man is fearless.

Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty, but perhaps not until Ol' Glory has a studio record captured the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey live performance. "I wanted that crucial lived-in feel," Grey says of Ol' Glory, and here he hits his mark. On the new album, Grey and his Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality to the production that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room.


When he isn't touring, Grey exerts his prodigious energies on the family land, a former chicken-farm that was run by his maternal grandmother and grandfather. The farm boasts a recording studio, a warehouse that doubles as Grey's gym, an open-air barn, and of course those 50-odd pecan trees that occasionally require Grey to go airborne with his sprayer.

For devoted listeners, there is something fitting, even affirmative in Grey's commitment to the land of his north Florida home. The farms and eddying swamps of his youth are as much a part of Grey's music as the Louisiana swamp-blues tradition, or the singer's collection of old Stax records.

This just in: Special guest Clarence Bucaro will open our show. His latest release is Passionate Kind.

Manhattan Comedy Night Music Without Borders

A night of NYC's favorite standup comics, produced and hosted by veteran comedian Sandy Marks.

SCHEDULED TO APPEAR*

Sherry Davey is a professional comedian, writer and actress, and a single mother of two daughters aged 20 and 14, an unending source of new material. Recently featured on NickMom's NICKMOM NIGHT OUT and NICKMOM ON, she appears regularly in NYC at Gotham Comedy Club; Broadway Comedy Club; The Comic Strip; and Stand Up New York.

Corey Kahaney is probably best known as a grand finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing, where Jay Mohr called her set "flawless." She recently appeared The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, was a hit on the 2016 season of America's Got Talent and has performed a record 7 times on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Cory is also a regular on The View, Fox & Friends and The Moms. And even though she's had specials on Comedy Central and HBO, her parents still wish she married a doctor!

Sandy Marks has a knack for spinning facts and stats into fast-paced, stream-of-consciousness-style humor that doesn't just inspire ebullient mirth but also hits home some rather startling truths about humanity. This serially self-deprecating Rolling Stone-approved comedian describes himself as "vapid, soulless, empty, and paranoid." And those are just his good qualities.

Dan Naturman 's charming combination of self-deprecation and outright grouchiness has had audiences howling from coast to coast, as well as landing him on NBC's Last Comic Standing and the late night shows. He began performing stand-up comedy in law school. After graduation he decided to devote himself to stand-up full time. Comedy, he discovered, was his true passion. Besides, his grades were bad and nobody would hire him.

Doors open at 7:15. Come early and visit our Piano Bar.

Tusk, The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, is the #1 Tribute to Fleetwood Mac in the world, bar none.

No wigs, no backing tracks, no gimmicks, just five musicians recreating the music of Fleetwood Mac to perfection with note for note renditions that no other Fleetwood Mac tribute on the touring scene today can come close to duplicating. Tusk covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over twenty-five years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members' formative years.

Authentic-sounding and always respectful, Tusk leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world's best-loved, top-selling bands.

"Every Patty Griffin song arrives fully and perfectly formed, which is perhaps her greatest gift. Her songwriting is honest and compassionate no matter the subject. Her voice is uniquely compelling and her guitar work unfailingly evocative. She's a songwriter at the top of her already formidable game." ~ NPR

GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together.

Over the course of two decades, the two -time GRAMMY® Award winner (and seven-time nominee) has crafted a remarkable body of work that prompted The New York Times to hail her for "writing cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people...her songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends."
