Jeremy Wallace Trio

Wallace took guitar lessons from Van Ronk, who sang a duet with Wallace on the song Samson and Delila on Wallace's second album, She Used to Call Me Honey.

Jeremy has a gritty, graveled voice that sounds as though he’s been gargling with gasoline. A bushel-full of song upon song about love-gone-oh-so-wrong, the romance of hanging out in deadbeat bars, the salvation of whiskey and making lots of bad choices. A minimalistic blues-based sound soaked in days long gone by – all drums with brushes (Tom Costagliola) and stand-up bass (Matt Gruenberg).
