US Rails :: US Rails

by

US Rails is een alternatieve supergroep met Joseph Parsons, Tom Gillam en Ben Arnold. In dit geval is de som meer dan de aparte delen. Fijne liedjes, inventief spel. Met een cover van Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, een nummer van de debuutplaat van die supergroep van een jaar of veertig geleden, Crosby, Stills & Nash. Dat geeft goed aan was US Rails op de gelijknamige debuut-CD is: C,S & N met ballen, want in tegenstelling tot dat trio durft US Rails ook lekker tekeer te gaan.

Echoing some of the great folk, pop and rock unions of the 60‘s and 70‘s as well as the newest super-groups and dream bands spanning the globe these days, US Rails emerges as the underdog collective of songwriters, singers and musicians who deliver not just a night of cool songs and great harmony.

US Rails leaves you with the lingering memory you may have experienced hearing some of these bands live for the very first time. It‘s in the sum of the parts, not the star of the show.

US Rails is five distinctive personalities who met originally while living in and around Philadelphia, PA but have since scattered all over the map to France, Germany and Austin, TX. Though US Rails has played many shows in the United States, their first recording, produced in a cottage house just south of Paris has recently been released on the Americana label Blue Rose Records in Europe.

US Rails is also working on a fresh batch of new songs which will be recorded following their European tour this fall where they will also be performing some of the 4 Way Street catalogue as well as some great time proven covers everyone will know including a brand new version of CSNY’s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” which is featured only on the debut US Rails disc and was performed live for the very first time while on tour in Germany.
