Well you can’t win em all. Despite constantly searching out new music occasionally an artist or two gets past me. That’s the case with these two today. It hurts even more that one of them (Jeff Pianki) is based in Michigan – not very far from me. The other is a bluegrass inspired group called Troubel.
Jeff Pianki is a young singer-songwriter from Milford, Michigan. He has a gorgeous voice and already a nice catalog of songs. “Missing Parts” is from his 2010 release Paper Window. Currently out on tour with Rocky Volato; Jeff Pianki plays Chicago on Monday, Sept 12 at Lincoln Hall.
Troubel is a 5 piece out of Boone, NC. The band blends genre’s like folk, bluegrass and the indie rock favored by Avett Brothers and Felice Brothers. On this song it’s mostly lead singer and banjo player Adam Walton but on the record you’ll find a fuller sound.
