Beau Jennings & The Tigers :: “Heavy Light”  

by
In Nederland hebben we Beau Jennings, die eerder speelde in de indie-band Cheyenne en met Sufjan Stevens, nog niet echt ontdekt en dat is verdomd jammer. Maar nu is er Heavy Light en zal dat gaan veranderen. De in Oklahoma woonachtige Jennings is namelijk een ronduit fantastische tekstschrijver. ‘They say faith don’t need evidence, but tell me about doubt,’ zingt hij treffend in het meeslepende Colorado. Voor Heavy Light heeft hij een groep muzikanten verzameld (The Tigers) die de sterren van de hemel speelt. Dit is popmuziek voor volwassenen. Een onmisbare plaat voor fans van Big Star, Tom Petty en The National.

Beau Jennings is a Norman, OK-based singer and songwriter with a world of stories to tell as his recording career nears the two decade mark, during which he’s collaborated with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Richard Swift, and filmmaker Bradley Beesley (Fearless Freaks, Okie Noodling) and shared stages with Dwight Yoakam,Heartless Bastards, Robert Cray, and John Moreland. From the Americana/indie rock band Cheyenne – which took him to Brooklyn, NY for the late 2000’s – to his ever-evolving solo career and penchant for home recording, Jennings explores the lives of others – both real and imagined – to craft touching, gallant pop songs with hints of Tom Petty, Wilco, Bob Dylan, and The National. The end of Cheyenne and a renewed self-reliance in his solo career led to the creation of The Tigers, a core group of seasoned professional musicians who handle the songs expertly. “I can write the songs and play acoustic guitar, but the band brings it to where it needs to be” says Beau of the band.
