Greg Farley
Greg Farley
After ten years of playing and recording with the Felice Brothers and Conor Oberst, Greg Farley has just released his debut solo album, Taker Easy. For the album Farley mines his own history for stories of class struggle, nature, love, pain, work, and family, all set against the backdrop of the northeast. At the end of the day, Farley has nothing to lose and something to say, and he’s saying it from the gut.
Bill Dwyer Band
Bill Dwyer Band
BILL DWYER BAND plays every show as if it were it's last. This Boston-based 5 piece takes the stage in a very raw, very warm way. Their music is dynamic in mood, feel, volume, energy, color and tempo change. It can be complex and simple and draws influence from the likes of The Velvet Underground, Stooges, James Gang, PJ Harvey, early ZZ Top and Woody Guthrie to name just a few. Bill Dwyer, the band's songwriter/guitarist/vocalist writes mainly about loves won and lost, personal victories and failings, hoping those doing wrong in the world pay dearly and sometimes just about finding people to party with in many different ways. Bassist Charles Murphy and Drummer Cullen Corley comprise a bombastic, driving rhythm section that helps keep the train on the tracks. Lead guitarist Clinton Degan's burning solos and pianist Charles Corley provide color and attitude unlike any other. Bill Dwyer Band comes across LIVE like a raw nerve, opening up and becoming exposed on the stage for all to feel. Giving everything we have in our souls and bodily existences is what we are all about. No boring shoe-gazing here. No phoned-in, routine, forgettable performances. We play with an energy and fire that is PURE honesty. Nothing less would be worth it.
