Album Notes
The Blackberry Bushes are a NW Acoustic Americana and Bluegrass band whose sound falls somewhere between Gillian Welch and The Infamous Stringdusters. Their songs evoke the natural world, with themes of imperfection and impermanence. The instrumentation is precise and improvisational, reminiscent of the virtuosic bluegrass greats. The Bushes have that rare magic that allows them to fuse elements from many genres into a sound that retains distinct threads of sonic color. Like their thorny namesake, they are rooted and growing, growing, growing.
The Appalachian Mountains are the meeting place of the fiddle and the banjo, and musical culture permeates the entire length of the Mississippi River. Jes Raymond and Jakob Breitbach may have started their musical journey in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their work is infused with the essence of the homes they wandered West from. Joined by Daniel Ullom (mandolin), Forrest Marowitz (upright bass), and Alex Genova (banjo), The Blackberry Bushes draw from the deep roots of American traditional music to create a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication. They are emerging as a band of artists with an obvious love of performing, spot on chemistry, and a live show that truly aims to stir the spirit.
Jes’s songs connect the day to day with the muses of wonder, folk wisdom, and earthiness. Backed by two, three and four part harmonies, she sings with joy and a desire for every person in the house to feel that she is singing to them. Jakob’s virtuosic fiddle improvisation, Daniel’s longtime immersion in bluegrass and old-time, and Alex's progressive banjo create a thrillingly potent onstage correspondence. Together with Forrest’s sensitive and grooving bass lines, they propel a song-focused band to expand outward in exploratory delight. Jes’s skillful flatpicking interlocks these soundscapes while the band simultaneously honors the genius of tradition and innovation.
