From: PA, United States
Genre: Alternative/Alt. Rock, Folk, Americana
With this album, DC Papke takes his place alongside other notable chroniclers of Americana. Restless Nights is an eclectic blend of Folk-Rock, Country and Blues.
The songs are intelligent and provocative. Papke's long-time bandmates Fes Parker, Terry Finneran, Scott Derkin and Jim Lynch hold nuanced and intimate musical conversations about the songs behind his back. Old pal Sandy Rothman (Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band) serves up some delicious pickin' on several tunes.
New-comer Libby Jewel and jazz chanteuse Teresa Harris sweeten the package with some of the most spine-tingling supporting vocals you've ever heard. Songwriting friends Maggie Elliott and Paul Waltz harmonize with Papke like only old friends can.
Shelly Schaeffer and Charlie Bleak make additional vocal and instrumental contributions.
Music from the outskirts of the Heartland by one of the great unrecognized singer/songwriters in America today.
Don't miss it.
