Honest, lush folk with a wink to the '70s

Until a few years ago, he was known as frontman of The Babies and bassist with Woods. In the meantime Kevin Morby has become a leading figure in the group of folk and Americana singer-songwriters that includes Courtney Barnett, Steve Gunn and Kurt Vile. His honest, refined and lush folk sound – in combination with his charismatic stage presence – is the singer’s trademark.

With the albums ‘Harlem River’, ‘Still Life’, ‘Singing Saw’ and ‘City Music’, Morby has never disappointed. So it was that ‘Singing Saw’ received the label ‘Best New Music’ from Pitchfork and the comparison was made with greats like Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. His fourth and most recent album is, according to Morby, inspired by and dedicated to his urban experiences in the US and further afield. ‘It’s a mix-tape, a fever dream, a love letter dedicated to those cities that I cannot get rid of, to those cities that are all inside of me.’

In the press Kevin Morby’s captivating fourth album feels spacious and intimate at one. It possesses an elegant, dusky atmosphere and Morby’s hopelessely optimistic songwriting is the best it has ever been. – Pitchfork on ‘City Music’

Superbe concert. Tout d’abord Sam Cohen et sa guitare magique. Ensuite presque les mêmes musiciens accompagnant Kevin Morby. Lui, cool dans son trip, excellence chanteur dont le phrasé fait parfois penser à Bob Dylan, sans la voix nasillarde. Bref, le meilleur de la musique américaine indépendante.

Super, lang geleden dat iemand zijn publiek zo kon doen genieten. Kitscherig decor maar het paste wel bij dit intiem optreden
