On Tuesday March 15th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes Rachel Ries back to The Greystones as she tours the UK in support of brand new EP ‘Cardinal’. Rachel crafts sly and compassionate songs for the crooked hearted. With an electric guitar, clear voice and steady hand, she pulls the listener into her world of city grit, country dirt, and her open-eyed search for redemption and reason. Her songs are fine-tuned delicacy with a snarl and disarming candor. Support comes from Tom Baxendale and Yellowcake. Advance tickets priced at £7 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/346250 and the venue (12-6pm) or entry on the night will be £9. Doors open 7.45pm.

 

***RACHEL RIES***

Rachel Ries

Rachel Ries, hailing from the prairies of middle America, crafts sly and compassionate songs for the crooked-hearted. With an electric guitar and piano; a clear voice and steady hand; she deftly pulls listeners in with disarming candor and holds them there with smart and tender poetry. This March, Ries will release Cardinal; a handcrafted EP of songs written while on residency in Rouen, France. For Rachel, each of the songs is a key; a direction; a red-blooded essential for living – be it bravery, belief in one’s path or the bonds of family and blood. Each Cardinal includes a limited edition linoleum block art print, handmade by Rachel herself.

Recorded by the inimitable Jeremy Messersmith in Minneapolis, Cardinal is Rachel’s 2nd handcrafted EP and follows in the wake of Ghost of a Gardener (2014). A well-lauded, ambitious album co-produced by David Vandervelde, Ghost features a duet with Gregory Alan Isakov, members of Cuddle Magic and cameos by Devon Sproule, Carrie Elkin, Danny Schmidt and many others. Many may know Rachel by her longstanding collaborations with Anaïs Mitchell and their country ep (2008).

Proudly carrying the torch of a heritage rich in the domestic arts, Rachel’s homemade preserves and hand-stitched notebooks can often be found at shows, nestled amid 180 gram vinyl, cds and t-shirts. If you need comparisons, think Joni Mitchell, Carole King or Jeff Buckley. If you don’t – just listen.

***TOM BAXENDALE***

Tom Baxendale

The Rainy Day Club were are a Sheffield three piece whose distinct songs combined elements of alt. country, new wave, rockabilly, pre-Beatles pop and post-Dylan americana. Their debut album, Pale White Hands – recorded by Bromheads’ Tim Hampton at his Crystal Ship studio – was released in 2013. Since the band’s demise, Tom has returned to concentrating on his solo material.

***YELLOWCAKE***

Ian Bramall

Singer/songwriter Ian Bramall has been described as sounding somewhere between Richard Hawley and Mercury Rev, nineties indie with folk sensibilities. More recently he’s joined forces with Sarah Sharp in the duo Yellowcake. Half brooding folk, half silly pop, half bad maths, it is an ongoing experiment exploring the perimeters of audience heart strings and tear ducts. Yellowcake accepts no liability for any emotion either caused or not caused during audio contact. It does however accept compliments and sweeteners freely. And dispenses them too.
