Jeffrey Foucault (from the album Blood Brothers available on Tone Tree Music)
The pen of Jeffrey Foucault often takes his characters right to the edge on his recent release Blood Brothers. The meditative repetition of the daily tasks in “Dishes” slowly revolve around the rhythms as the guiding vocal of Jeffrey Foucault carries the story firmly over meandering melodies. A defined musical template to match each tale is draped over Blood Brothers, the soundtrack to the songs supporting the stories from soft Country twang (“War on the Radio”), dry breaths of percussion under the sparkle of guitar notes (“Dying Just a Little”), hushed finger-picked Folk (“Cheap Suit”), and gusts of rhythm and chords bleeding into one another over harmonic admissions delivered alongside guest vocalist Tift Merritt (“Blown”).
Heading to rural Minnesota, Jeffrey Foucault and his band (Billy Conway (Morphine) - drums, Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams) - electric guitar, Jeremy Moses Curtis (Booker T) - bass, Eric Heywood (Pretenders) – pedal steel) recorded Blood Brothers live to tape in three days at Pachyderm Studios. The sway of “Rio” courses on a easy groove as Blood Brothers untangles its title track from intricate riffs and note patterns while Jeffrey Foucault is joined by Kenneth Pattengale (The Milk Carton Kids) on acoustic guitar for the delicate Folk of “Pretty Hands”.
