Kris Delmhorst [web site | Amazon.com] has built a thriving career and a devoted following from the ground up, and without major label hype. The same independence of spirit that led Delmhorst to spend some early years working on subsistence farms, cooking on a schooner off the coast of Maine, or hitch-hiking the back roads of Ireland with a fiddle on her back, is evident in the arc of her musical evolution: a willingness to work on her own terms and her own time. Along the way she's parlayed a decade of successful cross-country and trans-Atlantic touring into one of the most distinct voices in American music. Music Box Online wrote that she "frequently waltzes through the shadowy realm where light and dark meet... Delmhorst has become a favorite among music fans who like to be challenged as well as entertained."
Jeffrey Foucault [web site | Amazon.com] grew up in a small town in Wisconsin. His father played a plywood guitar and his mother liked to sing. Winter Sundays were for church or ice fishing. He went to college and dropped out, took a job on a fruit farm and started writing songs about a girl from Iowa. He finished school, roofed houses, drove a snowplow, and home-schooled the son of the local bar owner in exchange for beer. He cut his first album in the winter of 2000. Besides his solo career, Foucault also plays in the Cold Satellite, a six-piece band centered around his collaboration with award-winning poet Lisa Olstein, and the trio Redbird, which also includes Delmhorst and Peter Mulvey.
No Depression called him "one of our most truly poetic songwriters... Foucault's singing is almost nakedly human in that he invariably reaches for the most open honesty of his feeling... The inherent warmth of his throaty delivery tempers the occasional strangeness of his poetic lyric, and invites you into its possibilities."
