7/30/2012 9:03:00 AM Brandon Decker performs at The Well Red Coyote
Singer-songwriter and tireless troubadour Brandon Decker has played over 250 shows over the past two years, touring relentlessly from his home in Sedona to Seattle, Shreveport, and everywhere in between.
The fabulous Brandon Decker, musically known as decker, returns to The Well Red Coyote on Friday, Aug. 3, at 6:30 p.m.
Over the last two years, decker has played over 250 shows, touring relentlessly from his home in Sedona to Seattle, Shreveport, and everywhere in between.
In the midst of traveling 50,000-plus miles in his Dodge Caravan, he has self-released three albums, and, last June, delivered his first-born son in his kitchen to boot. It's safe to say, decker is among the hardest-working touring songwriters you've never heard of.
Decker crafts songs that find profundity in their naked sincerity. Not quite rock, not quite folk, his acoustic-based psychedelic Americana balladry draws upon a variety of influences; from Leonard Cohen to Tom Waits, from Cat Power to PJ Harvey. Yet in the end, his music is unique and uniquely him, and that is his offering.
"Songwriter of the Year ... he writes the kind of bluesy acoustic tunes that bear the comforting feeling of songs you've known forever." - Mike McQuillian, Yab Yum Music & Arts
"His music; which is as romantic, dramatic, intense, primitive and harrowing as a birth in a kitchen in Arizona...Broken Belts, Broken Bones creates its own furrow somewhere between Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska and Gillian Welch's Time, with mandolins, sparse accompaniment, narcotic tempos and stray harmonies." - Warren McQuiston, Performer Magazine
"...once again brilliant soul-searching music that explores the conflicts of his own mind and heart in a tight Americana format that defies genre pigeonholing." - Mitchell Hillman, Java Magazine
The concert is free and open to the public.
