Biography

Joel RL Phelps is a songwriter originally from Montana and was part of the indie rock band Silkworm. He left that band in 1994 and since has recorded his own material. He recorded his first non Silkworm album in 1995 in Seattle with members of other bands such as Jessamine, Citizens’ Utilities, Engine Kid, and the DEFLOWERS assisting. The following records pared down the members to a trio including Joel, Bill Herzog (Citizens’ Utilities, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, Sunn O), and Robert Mercer (the Deflowers, Treasure State). The instrumentation is somewhat shared but essentially Joel on vocals and guitar, Robert Mercer on bass, and William Herzog on drums. The group continues recording, and touring, but with much less frequency than in the 1990s when there were tours with Damon and Naomi, and Mark Eitzel. The Trio has shared the stage with many notable acts such as Television, Billy Bragg, Low, Palace, Bonny Prince Billy, and Modest Mouse.
