In 2011 i walked into a club in Worcester, Massachusetts , performed a show with my old band, and the promoter told me he had put this "young band from Massachusetts on to close the night out." He said "they're young, but I think they may have something".
So I hung around for the late night set, as a bunch of dudes with beat up acoustic guitars and a violin walked on the stage.
From the minute they opened their mouths and started belting out a Johnny Cash song like I had never thought could be done, my eyes and my ears were wide open.
I had discovered Nemes !!!!
Years later, I'd have the opportunity to share the stage with them again at Club Passim in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston, Massachusetts as I began to tour as an acoustic artist and write the songs that would become my first full-length album set for release next year...
These guys have just released a powerful record that I am proud to say I backed on Kickstarter !
I strongly recommend y'all checking these fellas out! Blue Rose, Butterfly, and Walk Me Down are my favorites so far off the record!
Their ability to combine both poetic sincerity and pure rock n roll angst to create a sound all their own living somewhere in between Nirvana , Jeff Buckley , Guster , and The Lumineers is truly art its purest sense.
