Newberry & Verch

Through their strong musical traditions of the Ozarks and Canada’s Ottawa Valley, Joe Newberry and April Verch take a little bit of home with them wherever they go.

Verch, best known for two decades of international touring with The April Verch Band and a 2020 JUNO Award Nominee, and Newberry, well-known for his work with mandolin icon Mike Compton, as well as The Transatlantic Sessions and A Prairie Home Companion, say that this collaboration holds a special place in their hearts.  They have enjoyed developing it alongside their other projects, which will continue.

“Joe and I had known of each other’s music for years, but had never met,” Verch said. “We had talked on the phone a few times and felt so confident that we would love playing together, that when some time opened up in each of our schedules, we decided to go ahead and book some shows.  In our first face to face meeting, and that first rehearsal in August, 2016, we knew that we were right. This was going to be special!”

In October, 2016, the pair performed their first concerts, among which were multiple appearances at the Celtic Colours International Festival across Cape Breton, NS.  “By the end of that run, we knew that we wanted to record an album,” Newberry said.  “The music that we make inspires us and we wanted to capture some of that feeling that we were sharing on stage in the studio.”

The result was their debut album Going Home released in 2017.  It’s an album that sounds like two old friends who have been playing together for years. In the words of Barry Poss, founder of Sugar Hill Records “Oh, but this is a good one!  Going Home is a simply gorgeous and intimate expression of musical multiculturalism.  Joe and April each bring superb musicianship from their respective Ozark/Appalachian and Canadian Ottawa Valley roots and while they never lose sight of their own unique traditions, their work together also serves to craft an entirely new musical aesthetic, one with its own melting pot integrity.”

Since those first encounters in 2016, Newberry & Verch have carved out time in their schedules for regular tours together, resulting in not only North American appearances but also in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales.  In December 2021 they’ll release their second album, a collection of holiday songs and tunes titled On This Christmas Day.

In the 46 years since “Midnight at the Oasis”, Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 41 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots Music, including Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Big Band, not to mention several award winning children’s albums.  She has now settle comfortable into her favorite idiom, the Blues.

New Music Monday – Karen Savoca

Savoca_RH_HiRes

New Music Monday is all about sharing the good tunes of new bands and artists that we love and/or coming to the Foundry soon! This week’s artist to check out is Karen Savoca who will open for Grammy-nominated folk musician Greg Brown on Sunday, March 20th, at the Foundry.

Karen Savoca’s baby diary reads, “20 months, knows six songs”. Born in northern NJ, daughter of a big band singer, her mother was not at all surprised to find her constantly dancing and singing. Karen studied piano at the age of eight, and at thirteen cracked her piggy bank to buy a guitar. She started writing songs in her early teens, sang in choirs, played in bands, and has been performing ever since.

“A voice with this much strength and easy confidence is a rare find. But that’s not where Savoca’s talents end. Her songs are filled with good humor, sensuality, and nature’s simple pleasures. She can work a sly smile into a lyric that makes you smile in spite of yourself. Open up and let her in.” – All Music Guide

Acoustic Guitar magazine calls Pete Heitzman “A true virtuoso of groove, with a sly touch that, combined with Savoca’s in-the-pocket drumming and spectacularly soulful vocals, gives the duo the impact of a four-piece band.”

Having performed together for decades, Savoca and Heitzman’s chemistry leaves audiences uplifted, wowing 10,000 from a festival main stage as effortlessly as they charm an intimate black box theater.

“Grit and sensitivity… percussion and groove… spanning soul, blues, r&b, roots and world rhythms like a high wire act working without a net.” – Six String, Columbus, OH

Savoca’s seventh solo album, “Promise,” was recorded in their 1890’s renovated church-home studio, nestled in the hills of upstate NY. The Edmonton Journal says, “There’s soul in the delicious grooves and phrasing, and soul in the broader sense that floats out of her lyrical vision.” “Promise” reached #1 on Alberta’s CKUA, and #25 on the Euro/Americana chart.

“Embracingly beautiful songs that have a beguiling way of changing and reconfiguring themselves like an aural kaleidoscope.” – Duluth News Tribune

In addition to their own catalog, Karen and Pete have produced two albums for Americana legend, Greg Brown, who says, “If she were a Native American, her name would be Sings Like Two Birds.” They have played hundreds of shows with Greg across the U.S. and Canada.

Karen and Pete have won seven SAMMY awards and are independent record producers and film scorers. They are currently recording I Shook The Tree, due for release in 2016

“Melodic songs that probe the mysteries of heart and soul. One of the most breathtaking live performances I’ve ever experienced.” –WILLAMETTE WEEKLY
