Barreling out of the northern woods like a grizzled bear on speed, Lucid, the hardest working band in the North Country (Upstate NY and VT), careens across the musical spectrum as a V8 blend of genres emerge- from jazz to rock, honky-tonk blues to reggae.
Formed in 2003, the latest album from the sextet, “Dewdmanwah”, was released this past fall to regional acclaim in the northeast.
With 2010 aimed at being their breakthrough year, keyboardist Andy Deller looks forward to gracing the country with a healthy dose of Adirondack soul and passion.
“Our sound is catchy yet eclectic. The songs get stuck in your head, and there is a very distinct tone,” said Deller. “The influences and the styles we play are wide ranging. But always at the center of it all is a thick thread of rock tying everything together. Our music has a little something for everybody. Audiences all over are very appreciative. We get applause, we get hooting and hollering, and sometimes nakedness. They’re always dancing.”
Roaming the nation on their graffiti-doused, Neal Cassady-esque psychedelic bus, “Lucy”, the rock bandits roll joyously along the road towards musical stardom, taking no prisoners, and always having fun in a sometimes-unforgiving industry.
“We just want people to go away thinking ‘that was a good time’,” Deller said. “And maybe for the next week or two they can’t get that one song out of their heads, but it’s a good thing. It’s like burping four hours after a meal, and saying, ‘oh yeah, that lasagna was good’.”
“Living in a ski town, one constantly hears the adage, ‘if you like it now, you should have been here 10 years ago, before all these people showed up’,” said Garret K. Woodward (Roving Festival Writer/State of Mind Music Magazine). “The funny thing is, in 10 years, I’ll probably be saying the same thing about Lucid and the unforgettable presence they create onstage and out of your speakers.”
Eastbound jesus Official Site
Eastbound Jesus is a six piece acoustic/electric band from the small town of Greenwich, NY. They formed in the fall of 2010 in an old barn on the outskirts of their hometown and huddled around a hot wood-stove, they began writing music right away. Adam Brockway, Carl and Luke Anderson, Dave Wright, Dylan Robinson and Zack Infante take inspiration from all over the music spectrum to form a style all their own. Over a tight rhythm section, the group blends clever lyrics, unique vocal harmonies, solid strumming and picking, and rounds out their sound with lead instrumentation that is nothing short of on-point.
The band has shared the stage with a variety of regionally and nationally acclaimed acts, such as The Felice Brothers, Moe., North Mississippi Allstars, Yarn, Cabinet, The Mallett Brothers Band, Blind Owl Band, American Babies and many more. They have released three full length albums in their short time as a band, “Greatest Hits Vol. 1” (Jan 2011), “Holy Smokes” (Jan 2012) and their most recent release, “Northern Rock” (April 2013). With these three finely crafted works under their belt and a high energy live performance thats truly one of a kind, it’s only the beginning for Eastbound Jesus. Their supportive fan base throughout the northeast and beyond continues to grow at a rapid pace and there seems to be no end in sight…
