New York, NY (August 3, 2015) – A show played perfectly to an empty bar. A singer with life and death on his shoulders, swinging a microphone like Samson swung a jawbone. The real ones who die with nothing half the time. With Salt As Wolves - his fifth collection of original songs - Jeffrey Foucault gives us what poet and author Chris Dombrowski calls in the album’s liner notes, “ that rare artistic combination of a voice and a world :” a tough, spare collection of darkly rendered blues and ballads, like a field recording of a place that never existed. In a series of letters to lovers, friends, heroes, and family, Foucault deftly weaves together disparate strands of sound and experience, raw love, and hard wisdom. Jeffrey Foucault will release Salt As Wolves on October 16 via Blueblade Records.
Caitlin Canty delivers her songs with a 1930's Recording King guitar and a dusky alto, painting the line between joy and pathos with uncanny precision and power. Raised in small-town Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, she spent a decade in New York City as a performer and as the first employee of the successful Artists Den series. She released RECKLESS SKYLINE (January 2015) produced by acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, featuring an all-star band on twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk.
Both on the road and on her unreleased new album, Caitlin Canty teams with some of the finest musicians in the world - including members of Morphine, Booker T, Cold Satellite, and Ray LaMontagne's Pariah Dogs - to create a sound that harnesses the grit and spark at the very heart of American music.
