In two decades on the road US singer songwriter Jeffrey Foucault has become one of the most distinctive voices in American music. Jeff refining a sound instantly recognizable for its simplicity and emotional power, a decidedly mid -western amalgam of acoustic blues, country and folk. He’s built a brick-and-mortar international touring career on multiple studio albums, countless miles, and general critical acclaim, being lauded for “Stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest” (The New Yorker), and described as “Quietly brilliant” (The Irish Times), while catching the ear of everyone from Van Dyke Parks to Don Henley, who regularly covers Foucault in his live set. Jeff will have acclaimed Pedal steel player and guitarist Eric Heywood (Son Volt, The Jayhawks, Ray Lamontagne) with him.
UNCUT: “The music of Wisconsin native Foucault is the kind so many aspire to but never attain: beat-up troubadour folk whittled to dolorous perfection”
Dietrich Strause is a songwriter. He writes like a gentler Nillson, with sophisticated melodies a la Ron Sexsmith and adroit turns-of-phrase. Oh and he sings in a delicate crooning tenor. His songs have been described by Americana UK as “captivating and evocative” & he has an album out on Jeff Foucault’s Blueblade recording label
