Tuesday February 7th 2023, Joel Rafael & The Furious Seasons.
Activist writer/singer Joel Rafael has released a stunning collection of Americana albums, including a two-volumeset of Woody Guthrie songs, with five Guthrie/Rafael co-writes. His latest work, ROSE AVENUE, San Diego Music Awards Best Country/Americana Album Nominee, is a ten-song masterpiece that gracefully defines Rafael's contribution to the American canon.
The Furious Seasons are an acoustic trio with stories to tell. Songwriter, singer and guitarist David Steinhart brings a writer's eye to his tales of persons in desperate situations, tales of Los Angeles in the 21st century, stories of romance and of individuals who are quietly heroic. Guitarist Paul Nelson has found a way to illuminate the songs with an agile blend of blues, folk and country influences, and he adds harmony vocals with an intuitive sense. The upright bass of Jeff Steinhart pulls the songs together with a gravitas that makes the vocals and the guitars soar. Listen to these stories and they will change you.
