Geoff Farina’s acoustic Glorytellers 3rd outing, Current Resident, reflects Geoff’s recent move from Boston to Chicago, and his continued journey into American roots music. From a new line-up lineup featuring Chicago locals Kenneth P.W. Rainey on mandolin and Riley Broach on double bass, as well as the heartfelt violin of Jean Cook (better known for her work with John Langford, Ida, and William Parker). Although some of this quartet’s unique string arrangements would not seem out of place on Norman Blake’s Original Underground Music from the Mysterious South, Glorytellers still echo 90s “indie” bands like Ida, Seam, Codeine, and Bedhead, and never quite betray their 90s indie rock roots.
The 8 songs that constitute Current Resident will be released digitally and on limited edition CD on Damnably Records in Europe and Afterhours in Japan.
