Wisconsin singer-songwriter returns to Portland for what's sure to be another fantastic show at the Alberta Rose.

Jeffrey Foucault
One of the finest songwriters of his generation, Jeffrey Foucault has taken "the small roads"; building an independent international touring career of ten studio albums, countless miles and critical accolades. He’s been lauded for stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest (The New Yorker), and "close to perfection (The New York Times), while catching the ear of everyone from Greil Marcus to Don Henley.
‘Salt as wolves’ is a line from Othello describing boldness; a fitting title to frame a record of blues played bold and loosely, without rehearsal or cant. SALT AS WOLVES gives us Jeffrey Foucault at the height of his powers, fronting an all-star band, turning the wheel of American music.

SALT AS WOLVES moves like a vintage Chess record, with an openness and dimensionality that beckons the listener further in. Released in October, 2015, SALT AS WOLVES reunites Jeffrey Foucault with legendary electric guitar player Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams), and bassist Jeremy Moses Curtis (Booker T), as well as longtime drummer and tour partner Billy Conway (Morphine). Caitlin Canty, whose breakout 2015 release, Reckless Skyline Jeffrey Foucault produced and played on, joins the band on backing vocals.
