Tour Announced and New Video Announced

Geronimo Getty Greyhound Blues
Category: News

Geronimo Getty, Los Angeles-based Aaron Kyle, will release his debut full length album “Greyhound Blues” on vinyl/CD April 10, 2015.  Produced by Jeff Halbert (Nick Cave, St. Vincent, Rickie Lee Jones) and captured mostly live, the final result is melodic and twangy, with an underlying urgency. It’s the sound of “four or five guys in one room, hashing it out, making it happen,” Kyle says explaining the rangy, roughly polished sound of terse rockers like “Mr. James,” the pedal steel and Telecaster-driven shuffle of “Dancing in the Morning Light,” creeping, distorted pickers like “Devil’s Theft” and his unabashedly romantic cover of Guy Clark’s “Anyhow I Love You.”

A loose concept album telling the story of a man easily given to violence, “Greyhound Blues” finds glimmers of hope in the changes over life’s journey. The album is accompanied by videos for each song, directed/produced by a slate of emerging independent filmmakers including Ruben Anders (Strutter), Dominic Ciccodicola (Top Chef, Project Runway), Bryan Kramer and Craig Bauer (Presence), Ashley Kramer (Drifter Pictures), Diane Bennett and Jay Bennett (Whisker Wars) and Dave Merson-Hess (Møkkakaffe), and veterans Allison Anders (Grace of My Heart, Gas, Food, Lodging), Tom Provost (The Presence), Travis Flournoy (Thank You for Judging), Ryan Jackson-Healy (Random Acts of Violence) and Aris Blevins (Suspension). The music videos evoke Kyle’s cinematic inspirations: the contrasting placid and foreboding vibes of David Lynch, the voodoo noir of True Detective and existential travelogs like Two-Lane Blacktop and Paris, Texas.

 

The Geronimo Getty live band will kick off their North American tour in Los Angeles. Catch them throughout the country in April.
