Det är med stor glädje vi tillsammans med Rootsy kan erbjuda The Artisanals på The Southside Cavern den 24 februari 2019. Upptäck det här bandet nu, i en unik, nära och intim miljö, nästa gång blir det på en betydligt större scen än The Southside Cavern.
Somewhere on a dusty road or a well traveled interstate, right at this very moment, a rock n’ roll band is pounding the rock. They’re probably wearing the same clothes they had on yesterday, and reminiscing about last night’s gig. Inspired by a guitar lick that cuts to the bone or a melody that lingers on refrain, this band is following a path forged by countless other musicians who’ve lived and died in dive bars or ‘made it’ with their posters taped to bedroom walls. What makes this band of brothers any different? This band is The Artisanals.
Johnny Delaware grew up in a small South Dakota town surrounded by cornfields and dirt roads. For 19 years, he lived in a wide-eyed perspective baptized in the setting of a John Mellencamp song. In order to personally evolve and carry out his musical destiny, Delaware knew that the heartland wind would have to blow him around the country; and he remains something of a nomad today. In college, he found himself skipping class to write and record music and eventually dropped out to pursue music full-time. Nashville was the first stop on this journey (as it is for many others) but after only a month in the Music City, he was disillusioned with the dog-eat-dog industry-types and relocated to Albuquerque, NM.
Living in a trailer house, Delaware would eventually set his sights on Austin, TX, where he met Luke Mitchell (The High Divers) from Charleston. The two hit it off and Delaware felt a calling to join the budding music scene in the coastal Carolina town. The transition wasn’t easy since he was living paycheck-to-paycheck in Austin and had no money to finance another move. Ultimately, divine intervention struck when a thunderstorm came through Austin - a tree fell on his car, and he was able to file an insurance claim and use the lump sum to move to Charleston. He recalls it was “the only tree that fell down in the whole goddamn city.”
Eventually, Delaware would link up with guitarist Clay Houle - an Atlanta native with a flair for cosmic rock riffs and the proprietor of the coolest retirement community traveling van in rock. And although the two musical brothers were already secure in other burgeoning outfits when they met, Delaware and Houle felt a kismet connection and knew their musical bond would lead them on implausible adventures together. Not long thereafter, bass guitar groovemaster, Eric Mixon, would join to officially form The Artisanals in 2016. Within a year of forming, The Artisanals dropped their four-track debut EP, Literally, Anywhere, and promptly received critical acclaim from Huffington Post, Paste Magazine, Daytrotter, PopMatters, and more. And have gained nods from musical allies like Band of Horses, Dylan LeBlanc, Roadkill Ghost Choir, and Shovels & Rope.
Now, with drummer Nick Recio and keyboardist Ian Klin rounding out the group, The Artisanals are poised to reach the masses with their self-titled debut LP featuring a blend of 70s Heartland Rock and Alt-Americana. The Artisanals, released on AWAL on September 21, 2018, is the culmination of the collective’s years of unique individual experiences writing, recording, touring, and living life one day at a time. It’s also the product of being dedicated to life on the road and touring relentlessFramträdanden av The Artisanals
