One of our foremost instrumentalists and a true hidden American treasure, Ralph White has taken the back roads in his inspired pursuit of the ancient roots of music. The "folk/noise/avant-whatever genius" (Joe Gross, Austin American-Statesman) has made many strange travels as an itinerant musician and laborer. Thus his intimate, nuanced musical language has slowly revealed itself, along a path that meanders from the apple orchards of British Columbia to the villages of Zimbabwe and Namibia, from the lonesome moors of Ireland to Australia, Brittany, Peru, Louisiana and beyond. There is also the influence of White's hometown of Austin, Texas, a rich musical crossroads in and of itself.

Along with Danny Barnes and Mark Rubin, White completed the original and definitive lineup of country/bluegrass mavericks (and recent Texas Music Hall of Fame inductees) The Bad Livers. He now performs his singular blend of ancient rural folk music and original songwriting as a soloist. Since touring extensively in North America and Europe, White has kept a prolific schedule of independent releases, "where borders are erased and music is the only language" (Insound).

In addition to his solo work, White has recorded or performed with a diverse group of folk and avant-garde musicians: Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Jandek, Jack Rose, Eugene Chadbourne, Michelle Shocked, Sun City Girls' Sir Richard Bishop, Powell St. John and Michael Hurley.

"Brooding, gospel-noir of the highest order" - Mad Mackeral

"Stripped down lyricism with a compelling swamp gospel sound that goes straight for the center of your being" - Yab Yum Music Blog

"For those that like their stomp swamp with a Southern Gothic twist – think of David Eugene Edwards raised in the bayou, check out New Orleans-based Old Nobodaddy" - Folk Radio UK

JOSHUA TELL
Joshua Tell writes songs that draw people in. Lyrically driven songs, toe tapping to tender, traveling tunes to historical ballads. As a performer, Joshua has toured extensively throughout Europe and the USA, inspiring audiences with his energy and sensitivity. In 2015 he began working closely with a (fantastic) lead guitarist known as Doctor James. This April they released their first EP- come check it out! You’ll be humming the melodies for days.

Review:
With swinging melodies and whiskey-smooth vocals, Joshua Tell is a hopeful talent in a waning tradition of contemporary folk storytellers, one that might just give the genre a much needed revival.
