ERIK KOSKINEN/ Jeremy Moses Curtis
November 15 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
JEREMY MOSES CURTIS is touring in support of his new record Midlife Chrysler. This date was moved from its original date on November 19 so that ERIK KOSKINEN could join in the fun. Jeremy will open for Erik. Both have played extensively with local hero Jeffrey Foucault.
A blend of American folk, country, rock-n-roll, and blues, ERIK KOSKINEN realizes a sound that is distinctive and fresh while familiar and classic. Erik has recently released Burning The Deal on Real Phonic Records/Tone Tree Music. The “Big Plane” video clip features Amelia Fleetwood (daughter of Mick) and the track is out now.
Koskinen’s albums are a lyrical and musical metaphor of America’s theaters of war, history, relationships, and reflections in the mirror. Burning The Deal was produced by Koskinen and Bernie Larsen (Melissa Etheridge, Jackson Browne) and recorded by Jason Mariani (Mumford & Sons, Kenny Loggins) at Brotheryn Studios in Ojai, California.
Knowing but not didactic, Koskinen channels the ways of Whitman and reverently enters the anthology of uniquely crafted wry songs with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ry Cooder while speaking as plainly as your neighbor. The Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Koskinen “the real deal” and “the best country songwriter in Minnesota.”
JEREMY MOSES CURTIS will be accompanied by Mike Castellana, a fabulous guitar player and steel player as well. Bios below ticket link-
“Midlife Chrysler is the kind of record it takes a lifetime of music to make: wry and wise, heavy and light, simple in the best ways, with an uncanny turn of phrase and a bone-deep pocket… I hear Tweedy in the magpie eclecticism, Prine in the strangeness that lands, Bobby Charles in the patient groove. American music is starving. This is a banquet.”– Jeffrey Foucault
Moses says: (a lot more than this on his webpage)
“In 2005 I cut a record of my own songs under my own name with the late great Billy Conway (Treat Her Right, Morphine) producing. I toured it here and there, but I was too busy working as a sideman and with other projects to give it much attention. In the spring of 2022 I found myself with a pile of songs and I asked Kris Delmhorst – an old friend and tour companion, and a musician I admire – to help shepherd them into the world. Observations, reflections, opinions, and love letters to the times I’ve traveled through and the people I’ve loved, Midlife Chrysler drills down through two and a half decades on the road, the tension between here and gone, love and motion, music and silence, work and calling in a country where the exceptions make all the rules, and where everything feels like a racket, except music. The big mystery, the one that still brings people together.”
