Friday Night kicks off the weekend with Oakhurst and The Farewell Drifters.
Oakhurst's latest offering Barrel (their 5th), was produced and engineered by Joe Pisapia (K. D. Lang, Ben Folds & Guster) and was recorded at his own Middle Tree Studios in Nashville, TN. With Pisapia and Oakhurst front man Adam Hill's collaborative songwriting and Pisapia's guitar performances, Barrel takes a noticeable turn from the bluegrass tendencies that characterized the band's previous efforts to a more genre-bending Americana and Bluesey reverberation. The arrangements and the harmonies are tight, pushing the songs towards a much broader audience with mainstream appeal. www.oakhurstmusic.com.
The Farewell Drifters are rising out of Nashville's thriving independent music scene, the Farewell Drifters are an alt-folk band known for their 60's era-inspired harmonies and adventurous musical energy. They have crafted a seamless blend of intellectual psychedelic pop with melodic songs that openly explore the brightest and darkest corners of life with raw intensity. The Farewell Drifters' latest album, Echo Boom, has been met with critical praise and finds them growing from young men into thinking men and establishing their considerable place in this world. www.thefarewelldrifters.com.
