JUNEGRASS is a shapeshifting group of instrumental rock and roll explorers from Chicago who bridge gaps between genre and open doors to new sonic dimensions. Each time these fella's play it is a brand new experience. With many different sounds under their belt, something might just surprise you.
Appleton, Wisconsin's Dusk may seem to have fallen from the sky. Surrounded by a music climate of destination festivals and instagram celebrity, they've remained reclusive, yet focused on the proverbial carrot on the end of the stick that's hard for so many working musicians to define. For the past eight years, they've maintained a steady schedule of recording and "hitting the dirt", as they say: spending weeks on the road playing dives and basements.
In what may be perceived as a daring move, Dusk have insisted on attempting to thrive in their own small nook, just outside the boundaries of the Midwestern United States' Rust Belt. They've built a small empire around their art- isolating themselves from the glitter of show business in pursuit of total creative freedom and an audience that will embrace their ideas and eccentricities. These ideas find their roots in the vast canon of American music; from the jazz standard songbook to the shuffle and stomp of honky tonk country.
Gerund was spoken into existence on August 23, 2018 at The Whistler. Lee Ketch (bass) asked Calvin Fredrickson (guitar, vocals), "Hey, want to write rock songs together?" The two agreed it was a financially sound decision. They enlisted mutual friend Connor Boyle (drums) because three's a party. Gerund's sole release — Live at Pallet Sound, recorded by Seth Engel — invites comparisons to Come, Heatmiser, and early-aughts Barsuk Records artists. Gerund members are famous from their other bands: Mooner, Terriers, and sewingneedle.
After a two year postponement, Gerund is set to record their debut LP in September 2022 with Amos Pitsch at Crutch of Memory.
