A Miners Town

by Marc Silver

A Miners’ Town is dark, lurid, and electric. Its solicitous tales are gritty, prowling, and scathing adventures into betrayal, deception, lies, and false convictions. It is conceived of loud, angry, and layered guitars, peppered with acoustic ballads.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Most people know Marc Silver as a bluegrass musician because of his band The Stonethrowers, an Americana band that has built a reputation on its high-energy performances of original and traditional music. However, the time has come to open your eyes to Marc’s rangy influences. His new record, A Miners’ Town is dark, lurid, and electric. Its solicitous tales are gritty, prowling, and scathing adventures into betrayal, deception, lies, and false convictions. It is conceived of loud, angry, and layered guitars, peppered with acoustic ballads, haunting instrumental interludes, and even a bluegrass hymn.

With his fifth record, A Miners’ Town, Marc tells of semi-fictional tales inspired by the sights, sounds, and testimonials of people who have been affected by the shale mining (extraction) industries. His stories are also personal, semi-biographical, and relate to the struggles of equal rights, coming out, and religious persecution of LGBTQ by religious leaders. The messages are subtle at times, direct at others, but all come from hours of introspection, research, and personal experiences. The sounds and message may be dark, but listen for the glimmers of hope too.
