Talk of banjos sometimes leads me down a dark road, but this week it led me to what I’ve musically been obsessing over.
Their sparse arrangements, harmonies, and instrumentation are captivating. It’s hard to believe two musicians can occupy so much musical space, but they do… and they do it very, very well.
This week Jason and Pharis Romero are making my ears smile in a big way. Yes, not only do these two combine forces to make amazing instruments they join together to create gorgeous music.
If you dig harmonies, simple yet beautiful arrangements, fine picking, and the kind of music you can just get lost in, Pharis and Jason’s music will make you weak in the knees.
One of my favorite tunes is the “Ballad of Old Bill” as it shows off there storytelling as well as their vocal and instrumental prowess. Their album, ” A Wanderer I’ll Stay” is chocked full of acoustic awesomeness to make your ears smile and your heart full.
