Jeffrey Silverstein :: Theme Western Sky Music

Western skies extend uninterrupted in every direction, and so, too, does Jeffrey Silverstein’s spaghetti western psychedelia. Here, in ruminative speech-song and drifting instrumentals, the Portland’s space cowboy explores the cosmos with Rose City twang-maestro Barry Walker Jr. on pedal steel, Akron Family’s Dana Buoy on drums and Alex Chapman on electric bass.

Jeffrey Silverstein :: Cowboy Grass

Emerging from a billowing cloud of smoke, a bramble of electric guitars growing from the soil beneath him: behold “Cowboy Grass,” a new jammer from Jeffrey Silverstein. The first single from the forthcoming Western Sky Music, it adds a healthy dose of swagger to the familiar brew of JJ Cale-styled boogie, loner folk ambiance, and Silverstein’s Berman-esque wordplay.

Musician and writer Jeffrey Silverstein. His new EP of gently cosmic guitar music is called Torii Gates, and he’s the head behind the wonderful It’s So Easy (When You Know What You’re Doing), a tribute to the late cult folk musician Ted Lucas, featuring AD favorites like John Andrews & the Yawns, Julianna Barwick and William Tyler, Barry Walker Jr., Amelia Courthouse, and more. He’s also a teacher and a runner. We get into it all on this special bonus episode of Transmissions.
