Join Eastbound Jesus as they record their first live album over two nights at Red Square.
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...
From the Binghamton, New York music scene comes Driftwood, a band with a rock n roll soul and a folk art mind. Carving out a name for themselves with electrifying live performances, they bring one of the most unique, raw sounds to the Americana/roots music scene. Incorporating upright bass, banjo, acoustic guitar and violin, the ghost of traditional American folk music lives in their palette. But the melodies, the harmonies and the lyrics are something else entirely. We started off playing rock in high school. Then studying jazz and classical music in college. Then we dove headfirst into folk and bluegrass. At some point I guess we kind of met in the middle, says guitarist/songwriter Dan Forsyth. Drawing on aspects of everything from 0ld-time recordings to 1960s R&B, the music is crafted to serve the songs. With fast-growing audiences singing along at live shows, its easy to tell the primary focus is on song.
