Dave Alvin, Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter and self-described
"barroom guitarist," is widely considered to be one of the pivotal
founders of the current Americana music scene. A fourth generation
Californian, Dave Alvin grew up in Downey, California as the local
landscape quickly evolved from orange groves and dairy farms to tract
homes and freeways.
Since forming the highly influential roots
rock/R+B band The Blasters, with his brother Phil in 1979, and
throughout his long and critically acclaimed solo career, Dave Alvin has
mixed his varied musical and literary influences into his own unique,
updated version of traditional American music. Combining elements of
blues, folk, R+B, rockabilly, Bakersfield country and garage rock and
roll with lyrical inspiration from local writers and poets like Raymond
Chandler, Gerald Locklin and Charles Bukowski, Alvin says that his songs
are "just like California.
A big, messy melting pot."
Dave Alvin's 30 years of recordings and live performances move through
the loud, aggressive rock and roll of The Blasters to the contemplative
acoustic storytelling of his solo albums, (KING OF CALIFORNIA, BLACKJACK
DAVID, DAVE ALVIN&THE GUILTY WOMEN) and from the traditional folk
of his Grammy winning CD, PUBLIC DOMAIN to the electric blues of his
ASHGROVE CD. Alvin has always managed to unite seemingly disparate
genres into a cohesive vision of contemporary roots music. You can
expect no less from his latest album, ELEVEN ELEVEN, released on Yep Roc
Jun 21st 2011.
Dave Alvin's songs have been recorded by a
who's who of contemporary roots artists from Los Lobos, Little Milton,
Robert Earl Keen, Marshal Crenshaw and Joe Ely to Dwight Yoakam, James
McMurtry, Buckwheat Zydeco, Alejandro Escovedo and X. His songs have
also been featured in many movies and television shows including
Justified, The Sopranos, True Blood, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Crybaby,
Miss Congeniality and From Dusk To Dawn.
