Jarrod Dickenson & Chris Kasper
with Electric Blue Yonder
Rock • Blues • Americana • Space-Folk
Jarrod Dickenson is a guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer, originally from Waco, TX & now based in Nashville. His two albums, The Lonesome Traveler and Ready The Horses, along with his EP, Under A Texas Sky, have earned him critical acclaim and a devoted audience on both sides of the Atlantic.
Dickenson has entranced crowds all over Europe and the US and shared stages with such legendary artists as Bonnie Raitt, Don McLean, The Waterboys, Jools Holland and Jimmie Vaughan. He has performed at prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival.
In addition to his Texas origins, his current status as a Tennessee resident, and the fact that he dropped enough rent over the years to deserve to call himself a New Yorker, Dickenson is also an adopted son of Belfast. It was in the Northern Irish city where he met wife and bandmate Claire Dickenson, whose luscious, versatile vocal has become a central ingredient of his sound on stage and on record.
After a baptism of fire in the world of the major labels, Jarrod Dickenson now exists as a fiercely independent artist, a look that suits him well and allows his creativity to follow whatever path it damn well pleases. Nowhere is this attitude better encapsulated than in the bluesy rock-and-roll growl of his uncompromising new album Big Talk, released worldwide in February 2023 via Hooked Records.
Chris Kasper is an American songwriter with a style rooted in folk, rock and blues. His music has been compared to everything from Paul Simon to Beck, and draws on inspiration from musical greats such as Bill Withers and Levon Helm.
With 25 years of playing under his belt, Chris’s unique storytelling and lush arrangements, combined with his studio artistry, set him apart as a standout artist of this generation.
Based in Philadelphia, but a true road warrior at heart, Kasper has kept good company opening for, lyric-tossing & sitting in with the likes of Amos Lee, The Avett Brothers, Tristan Prettyman, Good Old War, The Wood Brothers & G Love. They hand-picked him out of a sea of songwriters to support multiple country-wide tours since 2013, when he released Bagabones.
A solo performer to be reckoned with, Chris’s collaborative spirit also lends him great strength as a bandleader. He can often be found performing with Philadelphia staples Phil D’Agostino (bass), Kiley Ryan (fiddle) and Daniel “Scrappy” Bower (percussion).
His music sips from the cool and refreshing waters of soulful songwriters, old bluesmen, sonic architects, fine poetry & a well-traveled spirit.
ELECTRIC BLUE YONDER
A traveling troupe of intrepid space folk explorers, Electric Blue Yonder examines the mysteries of the universe and reports their findings through song.
The band includes founders & Montgomery, AL natives Beth & Johnny Veres, who provide vocals and guitar, and Russell Thomas Bush on bass, with an expanding cast of talented musicians.
Described as “Real American Space Folk,” the band draws its inspiration from the psychedelic folk, surf, and cosmic country rock of the 60s and the Space Age prog/art rock explorations of David Bowie and Pink Floyd, all while shifting time to the early roots and parlour style guitar of the 20th century. The result is a genre-bending mix that captures a nostalgic familiarity while simultaneously transporting you into uncharted territory.
