With a banjo in one hand and a suitcase in the other,
The Tailor saunters a slow tango through a forest of thorns,
coming out the other side, with a rose between his teeth.
The first thing you notice on his album is the texture, it is almost as important
as any melody, it is sensual, thick with found sounds swept from a dusty floor.
One part frontporch rocking-chair,
one part dream folk, one part stomp,
he has toured both acoustic folk main stages and underground electronic music
festivals. Some highlights are the Shambhala festival in Canada, the Fusion festival
in Berlin, and various folk festivals across North America.
The Tailor has released three Albums, and One Ep.
The new album “ The Salt “ is an ocean faery tale, about a man who leaves to cross
the sea and begin a new life for his family, but goes down in a storm, and can only
return after a long dance with the siren queen.
It blends elements of Balkan Beat, orchestral folk, and ambient sound,
into a Dark blue Sea of an album.
It has had limited indie release in May of 2010 and will be re‐released on DiViNiNG
Records in Spring 2011, on vinyl and download.
A short Film of the story will be finished in the new year, a tale told with underwater
puppetry and a sailboat made of sticks.
Tours of North America and Europe are being planned for Spring 2011.
