Joe Rut & Loretta Lynch | DeliRadio’s Free lOAKal Music Showcase | Oakland
Joe Rut‘s fans have compared him to influences as disparate as Todd Snider, They Might Be Giants, The Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, and Ween. His live shows have earned him a cult status, among those in-the-know, as a crafty guitarist and a clever songwriter who disarms the listener with humor while airing weightier fare.
“Loretta Lynch plays the sort of California country-lover’s country that has no past… Buttery vocal harmonies and wary rhythms convey timeless tales about heartbreak, coming home, and growing old that still manage to sound utterly modern.”
– East Bay Express
Singer-songwriter Melody Walker and picker extraordinaire Jacob Groopman have fused their influences into a style they like to call “Americali.”
