Folk icon ELIZA GILKYSON

DEEP DIVE: BURIED TRACKS
 
Some of my songs, favorites of mine off the last 22 albums, are buried deep in the recordings.  For various reasons, they have never really seen the light-of-day in my touring sets. For this show, I look forward to digging them out and sharing them. Maybe you have a favorite buried treasure. Requests are welcome. ~ Eliza

New album 2020 - April 10, 2020; Red House

Eliza Gilkyson, the two-time GRAMMY™-nominated (2006/2014) folk singer, songwriter and activist is one of the most respected musicians in the Folk Roots/Americana music today. In keeping with the idea of folk music as an instrument for change, Gilkyson is announcing her new release, 2020, a collection of politically charged anthems designed to motivate, reflect and inspire action during what she believes will be “the most important USA election of our lifetime.” She is sharing the song "Sooner or Later" today at Billboard, which writes "the bluesy, biting 'Sooner or Later' is intended as a rallying cry and a statement of purpose." Gilkyson examines the inequality in our world right now and warns that sooner or later we're "gonna rise up, gonna take it all back."

LISTEN TO "SOONER OR LATER" HERE 

Produced by Eliza's son, Cisco Ryder, 2020 features songs that are designed to be audience sing-a-longs in the Pete Seeger tradition of motivational political anthems, from the plea for tolerance, "Peace in Our Hearts,” to blistering condemnations of the current regime’s policies with “Sooner or Later” and "My Heart Aches.” Along with these new songs (including two co-writes with students from her summer songwriter workshops in Taos, NM), she has recorded two folk favorites: Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall" and Pete Seeger's "Where Have All the Flowers Gone." Gilkyson’s timely new song, “Beach Haven,” was drawn from a letter written by Woody Guthrie in 1952 directed to Beach Haven Apartment’s landlord Fred Trump (POTUS’ father) regarding his racist, segregationist renter policies. The song is Woody's joyful invitation to Trump to “open your doors” and “rip out the strangling red tape” that keeps the apartment from embracing all races. 

"One More Day” finds Gilkyson reflecting on the sobering realities of climate catastrophe while celebrating her commitment to life, love, community and Planet Earth with the songs “Beautiful World of Mine,” "We Are Not Alone” and "Promises to Keep."

Featured artists include Eliza’s tried and true band of beloved Austin musicians: Mike Hardwick (Jon Dee Graham, Jerry Jeff Walker, Charlie Sexton) on pedal steel, slide and electric guitars, Chris Maresh (Eric Johnson) on bass, Bukka Allen (Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Ely, Terry Allen) on keyboards, Warren Hood on fiddle, mandolinist Kym Warner (Green Cards) and producer Cisco Ryder on drums, with cameo appearances by rising star Jaimee Harris, folksinger Betty Soo and the WEWIM Choir of Austin, a support group co-founded by Eliza and singer Charlie Faye to nurture local female musicians working to get their careers off the ground.

Gilkyson, daughter of folk artist Terry Gilkyson and sister of LA-based artist Tony Gilkyson, is held in high regard by critics and her fellow songwriters alike; she recently supported Richard Thompson on his fall 2019 U.S. and had her song “The Great Correction” covered in 2018 by Joan Baez. Gilkyson will be touring her new release during 2020 with various musical accompaniment from solo to trio configurations, with songs that range from the personal to the communal, highlighting a perspective that moves beyond US politics into the international collective and our imperative to respect all of humankind and the natural world as united citizens of the earth.

Gilkyson says: “2020 was born out of a visceral impulse to promote unity, commitment and action during this epic and critical showdown of power versus people in the USA and our world today.

“May human decency prevail.”

OrnEtc. - The local band that plays all-original jazz (and jazz-like) compositions

 

OrnEtc. was formed roughly 4 years ago as an Ornette Coleman tribute band by bassist Noah Baumeister and drummer Dave Wayne. Baumeister, who studied jazz bass at NYU under Mike Richmond, is best known for his work with the Stephanie Hatfield Band, Drastic Andrew, and with his own heavy rock band 'Man Hurls Hedgehog.' Wayne has been playing weird jazz and even weirder rock gigs all over New Mexico for the past 20-odd years with Bichos, The Gagan Brothers, Mushi Trio, Protuberance, Shake Alert, and The Wind-Up Birds—a Horace Tapscott tribute band. 

 

They reached out to cornetist Dan Pearlman and vibraphonist Lee Steck who both jumped at the chance to play Mr. Coleman's challenging-yet-joyful compositions. Pearlman, who previously played with Wayne in 'The Things That Are Heard' and in Zimbabwe Nkenya's 'Ziya,' has a strong affinity for Coleman's compositions that goes all the way back to his music studies at Oberlin College. Steck, best known as the drummer for guitarist Ross Hamlin's 'Stella' and 'Mushi Trio,' the world-fusion band 'Jaka,' and several of his own bands, took the gig on vibraphone—his first ever! Still seeking another voice, the band asked the visionary saxophonist, composer, and activist Chris Jonas to sit in. Internationally known for his work as a soloist, composer and conductor with Anthony Braxton, William Parker, Cecil Taylor, and the Del Sol String Quartet, Jonas officially joined the band about a year after its first gig. 

 

The most recent addition to the OrnEtc lineup as of Autumn 2018 is the world-class saxophonist Alex Murzyn. Trailing a slew of performance credits that will make your head spin (Dizzy Gillespie, Bobby Hutcherson, Jack Bruce, Arturo Sandoval, The Temptations, Ray Obiedo, Pete Escovedo,Tito Puente, Sheila E, Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Clark, Sammy Davis Jr., and Lydia Pence and Cold Blood to name a few) Murzyn's powerful improvisations add yet another dimension to the OrnEtc. sound, and we're happy and privileged to have him in our lineup.

 

Over time, OrnEtc. started moving away from the tribute concept and concentrated on their own compositions, many of which are featured on their first recording “These Times.” Pearlman brought in tunes that he'd written for Zimbabwe Nkenya's band, and Wayne refurbished material from the Things and Mushi Trio. Lee Steck's compositional contributions to “These Times” stand out on the sheer strength of their catchy melodies, interesting harmonies and elegant construction. Chris Jonas, besides being a powerful, eloquent, and engaging improviser, is an excellent composer who extends the band's roots into the jazz soil even further. The band will be debuting several new and unusual-yet-groovin' new tunes in 2020. Despite their eagerness and ability in the compositional realm, OrnEtc.'s extensive book still includes about a dozen Ornette Coleman tunes, plus rarely covered music written by the likes of Thomas Chapin, Kenny Wheeler, Thelonious Monk, Bela Bartok, and Mihaly Dresch Dudas; a saxophonist from Transylvania who's attained near-legendary status in the Eastern European jazz scene.
