Do you hear the name Leslie Rich and find yourself recalling the local Celtic band Hounds of Finn? Me too, but actually Rich has been doing something quite different for a while now with his band Leslie Rich & The Rocket Soul Choir. The band, who in addition to Leslie Rich are Jason Wahl (bass/vocals) and Pete Boulger (drums/percussion) have helped the singer songwriter to shed some of his Irish born roots to embrace a more rock Americana vibe. In fact, the stand out song “Long Line of Fools” from the band’s EP Kidder’s Son may be Minnesota’s answer to the sultry alt Americana rock sounds of Chris Isaak. Don’t take my word for it though, check it out:
Look for Kidder’s Son vinyl to be released on April 22nd, which will be quite a special day to mark on your calendar as it is Record Store Day!
