silver louise

"Silver Louise learned to play guitar and banjo at the foot of the black mountains in North Carolina. Dark, modal banjo tunes and the blues of the rural south inspired her early work, which evolved as she discovered John Fahey, Robbie Basho and composers such as Steve Reich, Lubomyr Melnyk, and Meredith Monk. Her lush, hypnotic guitar compositions recall rhododendron thickets and countless hours playing by her crackling woodstove, and her voice reflects the soul of the field recordings she has absorbed over the years. Now based in San Francisco, her music has evolved into a mature and original sound that pushes the boundaries of folk and experimental music."

takoma, banjo, canciones a capella y una voz que 'refleja el alma de las grabaciones de campo que Louise ha ido absorbiendo a lo largo de los años'. lo más nuestro
