Black Water Choir, the folk duo of Corey Hines and Alexis Ambrose, has returned to the stage after a dormant period and we are more than excited to see the haunting melodies these two produce. After playing at Bluffton, SC’s much acclaimed Roasting Room last Saturday, they are playing a last second gig at El-Rocko Lounge tomorrow night with a killer lineup, presented by Savannah blog Country Club Deserted.
Young Mister, the new project of songwriter Steven Fiore, is on tour supporting their self titled record, out now on Refresh Records. Fiore hasn’t played Savannah much, but has been on the road the past few years touring with Jay Clifford (Jump Little Children), Slow Runner, and even regularly performing with Jeff Goldblum’s jazz band in Los Angeles.
Fiore’s touring band happens to include many members of the Stopover alums The High Divers, so they will join in on the action too. If you didn’t see them perform at last March, their set at The Grey was one of the more passionate of the Stopover weekend; a high energy indie rock group with some Carolina twang. They are also part of the much touted Hearts & Plugs roster, and will be featured at the Summer Shindig later this week. If you can’t make it up, this is a great opportunity to see them.
I was there to see the Young Mister CD release show last Saturday at the Royal American. Expect an incredible show reminiscent of Dawes and Jackson Browne. If you like any type of country or sunny LA rock and roll, this show might pair incredibly well with a couple scorpion teas. See you there.
