BLACKBERRY BUSHES
Friday, May 1, 2015

BLACKBERRY BUSHES

The Appalachian Mountains are the meeting place of the fiddle and the banjo, and musical culture permeates the entire length of the Mississippi River. Jes Raymond and Jakob Breitbach may have started their musical journey in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their work is infused with the essence of the homes they wandered West from. Joined by Daniel Ullom on the mandolin and Forrest Marowitz on the upright bass, The Blackberry Bushes draw from the deep roots of American traditional music to create a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication. They are emerging as a band of artists whose Americana is honest and generous with an obvious love of performing, spot on chemistry, and a live show that truly aims to stir the spirit.

Jes’s songs connect the day to day with the muses of wonder, folk wisdom, earthiness, and impermanence. Backed by two, three and four part harmonies, she sings with joy and a desire for every person in the house to feel that she is singing to them. Jakob’s virtuosic fiddle improvisation and Daniel’s longtime immersion in bluegrass and old-time create a thrillingly potent onstage correspondence. Together with Forrest’s exceptionally sensitive and deeply grooving bass lines, they propel a song-focused band to expand outward in exploratory delight. Jes’s skillful flatpicking interlocks these soundscapes while the band simultaneously honors the genius of tradition and innovation.

It is a rare magic that allows a band to use voices from many genres in an acoustic instrumentation that retains distinct threads of sonic color. Elements of jazz, classical, pop and gospel saturate this modern string band sound that is buoyant, bold, and like their thorny namesake, rooted and growing, growing, growing.

MAX'S MIDNIGHT KITCHEN
Friday, May 22, 2015

MAX'S MIDNIGHT KITCHEN

Max's Midnight Kitchen is a nationally touring string band based out of Portland, Oregon. Their sound is characterized by the songs and harmonies of Matt Takiff (acoustic guitar) and Daniel Nickerson (banjo and electric guitar), whose music combines time-honored folk, bluegrass, and country themes with a healthy dose of surrealism and humor. Informed by travels up and down the interstates of the US and across international borders, their songs tell stories of wily characters and paint pictures of the world as it goes by outside.

After making their initial acquaintance in 2010 while auditioning for the same tenor sax position with the Lewis and Clark College jazz combo (they both got it), Matt and Daniel have been playing music together ever since. Max’s Midnight Kitchen began as a family band of immense proportions, with as many as ten musicians cramming into basements across Portland to play late into the night. In 2012, Daniel borrowed a banjo he never gave back and the lineup slimmed down to a quintet, with Justin Eubanks on mandolin, Elliot Kuhlman on bass, and Micah Rilkepartain on percussion. After recording two albums in their practice space, the group continued on as a quartet without drums, and refined their craft further. 2014 saw the completion of their third full-length album, whose 11 tracks were recorded live in a single day in a resonant chapel in SW Portland.

As a duo, Max’s Midnight Kitchen set off in early 2015 to spend a month touring the west coast in Blake, a much-loved green minivan. Matt and Daniel made a pit stop at Coyote Hearing Studio in Oakland, CA to record their most recent collection of tunes, a six song EP titled “Travels with Blake.” Working with producer Erik Yates of Hot Buttered Rum, as well as Jan Purat and Alex Bice of Steep Ravine, the recordings reflect a new direction for the group, blurring genres and creating a style uniquely their own.

In addition to their original material, Max’s Midnight Kitchen performs songs from American old-time folk and bluegrass traditions, along with some rock and country classics thrown in for good measure. Whether performing in a noisy bar, a bustling farmer’s market, or a hushed living room, the full feeling of their songs and stories comes through loud and clear.
