TUE, 24 JUL 2018
Previously bassist for The Woods, then frontman for The Babies and then he finally began his solo career that, after only three albums, places him among the most inspired and fresh interpreters in the contemporary folk and indie scene. A sophisticated and nostalgic singer-songwriter, Kevin Morby was born in Lubbock, Texas City, in the northwest of the Lone Star State, in April 1988, and since the age of ten he has been studying guitar. At the age of 17, he decided to stop his studies at the Blue Valley Northwest High School, and after that, he made a very common choice in the 2000s: moving to Brooklyn to become a musician. And it’s in one the bars of bars in Greenpoint that the crucial meeting takes place, with friends of friends involved in a musical project that would become one of the most popular in Brooklyn, The Woods. A few years later, in 2011, The Babies project was born, here Kevin can give space to his talent as a vocalist and guitarist. In 2013 he released his first solo album “Harlem River”, characterized by fascinating and timeless compositions. “City Music” is his fourth album, released in 2017, after the success of “Singing Saw”. Full of eagerness to travel, it’s an inspired collection dedicated to the metropolitan experience in America, a tribute to the places that have characterized the life of Morby. If “Singing Saw” was a record immersed in nature, starting from the title and the settings of the songs (I Have Been To The Mountain, Black Flowers, Water) even before the acoustic sound, the new album is, in fact, the exact opposite – more animated and chaotic, an autobiographical set that reflects the loneliness and the landscape which it was recorded in.
