The WDVX Blue Plate Special – 9/24 – The Pinkerton Raid / Liv Noelle
September 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Slotting at grassroots festivals up and down the East Coast, The Pinkerton Raid pushes at the borders of folk, Americana and indie rock to craft a sound for dreamers around a campfire.
Songwriter Jesse James DeConto grew up in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, with his dad’s guitar and mom’s FM radio tuned to Soulsville, the Village, Liverpool and Laurel Canyon. Those inheritances mingle with the foothills-folk and alt-country of his chosen home of Durham, N.C. Critics have heard echoes of disparate influences, from Neil Young and The Band, to Wilco, The White Stripes, Sharon Van Etten and David Bowie.
The Pinkerton Raid has shared stages with Illiterate Light, The Ballroom Thieves, Noah Gundersen, Lowland Hum, and The Collection, whose songwriter David Wimbish produced the band’s fourth full-length album WHERE THE WILDEST SPIRITS FLY with Jeff Crawford at Arbor Ridge Studio.
Nashville recording artist and songwriter Liv Noelle and sister Eva with their Powerhouse Harmonies form an Americana Blues/Rock Soul band with their Dad Lee on drums. Originally from southern Ohio and now proud residents of Franklin, Tennessee. Liv Noelle’s songs magnify the dimensions of one’s heart and mind through the soulful melodies and heart felt lyrics. Their debut EP, Facing Forward, released on October 13, 2019 topped the US iTunes Singer Song Writer chart at #1. They’re currently in the studio working on their 2nd EP, 1st EP with Producer Johnny Garcia, (Guitar player for Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks). Liv Noelle undeniably projects reflective and truthful lyrics and melodies that need to be heard far and wide.
