The Record Company
When The Record Company pick up their instruments, the members—Chris Vos [guitar, lead vocals,harmonica], Alex Stiff [bass, backing vocals], and Marc Cazorla [drums, backing vocals]—participate in a musical back-and-forth akin to a formative and supportive conversation among siblings. The nuances oftheir personalities seep through loose, bluesy guitar leads, airtight drum grooves, thick bass, and vividl yevocative lyrics. With such fluidity, the musicians respond to one another so instinctually you’d swear they were telepathically linked. However, there’s no such superpower necessary when you’ve got the closest thing to a brotherhood that three musicians unrelated by blood can share...
On his new album, Roots Rock Rebel, Jesse creates a meaningful call to action in the tradition of great rambling American buskers. The album’s powerful opener, “Pray,” is a foot-stomping, modern-gospel anthem. In its second, “Daughter And Son,” Jesse offers a melodic apology to women on behalf of society – “To the daughters of the world, we’re failing you once again” – promising he’ll “fight…’til the end” and asking the sons “to be better men.” The third track, “The Older I Get,” features Ken Casey and country singer Jaime Wyatt.Liza Lentini / SPIN.com
