New from Jackie Greene: The Skinny Singers

Sacramento (Calif) songster Jackie Greene (whose American Myth album is just fantastic, and who you can see on some video I shot here) has formed a new band with Tim Bluhm (of Mother Hips). They are called the Skinny Singers (garage/country) for, as they say, “obvious reasons.” As their little MySpace profile says, “Together, they represent a musical force that is awe inspiring. They are also very skinny.” Take a listen:

California Way” – Skinny Singers

Down In The Valley” – Skinny Singers

My personal favorite of the three songs from them is only streaming on the site. It is called “Singing My Way To The Grave” and you can stream it here.

  • Skinny indeed. More bands with two people (or less)! I just saw Architecture in Helsinki last night and while they were wonderful, sometimes the amount of folks on stage can be overwhelming. Good find, thank you.

    cheers, baby

  • Hey now… glad to see the props for Jackie Greene, but he’s from Sacramento, not the Bay Area. It’s not like we have rock stars coming out of our ears, so we take pride in the ones we’ve produced!

  • Thanks, Jason. I did know that but I kind of over-extended the term Bay Area – fixed now! Props where props are due! Thanks.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
