Pokey LaFarge

Fusing the sounds of the past with the energy of the present day, Americana singer/songwriter Pokey LaFarge makes old-time country-, blues-, folk-, and Western swing-influenced music. Born Andrew Heissler in Bloomington, Illinois in 1983, LaFarge developed an early interest in American literature and history, as well as roots music of the 20th century. By his teens, LaFarge was combining his passions into his own music, accompanying himself on guitar, mandolin, and banjo. After graduating high school, LaFarge adopted an itinerant lifestyle -- as well as the nickname Pokey -- and traveled around the United States, often performing on street corners. LaFarge also crossed paths with a handful of like-minded musicians and he was soon touring with his own combo, the South City Three, featuring Adam Hoskins on guitar, Joey Glynn on standup bass, and Ryan Koenig on harmonica, washboard, and percussion. In 2006, LaFarge released his self-produced debut album, Marmalade. Several independent releases followed before LaFarge caught the ear of Jack White, who invited LaFarge and the South City Three to accompany him on the song "I Guess I Should Go to Sleep" from White's 2012 album Blunderbuss. LaFarge and his band also opened several dates on White's tour in support of Blunderbuss, and in 2013 White signed LaFarge to his own Third Man Records label. In 2013, LaFarge released his eponymous Third Man debut album, and his band expanded to a sextet with the addition of Chloe Feoranzo on clarinet and sax, T.J. Muller on trumpet, and Matthew Meyer on trap drums. In November 2014, LaFarge signed a new recording deal with the respected roots music label Rounder Records, and his first album for Rounder, Something in the Water (produced by Jimmy Sutton, best-known for his work with JD McPherson), appeared in April 2015. ~ Matt Collar

We saw Pokey perform solo in Bloomington just last week. He was in town to help celebrate his grandmother' s 90th birthday. He's an amazing performer.

Pokey LaFarge is a breath of fresh air in this congested musical world. The band is without genre,unable to be pigeonholed. Just damn fine music.
Always progressing and expanding without pretentious posing.
When I first heard them I knew they had nailed it down for me. Being a music lover with an affinity for anything that moves me, be it jazz,blues,r e g g a e , c l a s s i c a l , c o u n t r y or any combination of the many titles we try to explain away the sounds with,
this combination has hit home!

Pokey comes home to Illinois every year to help celebrate his Grandmothers birthday. I caught his show this past spring, and loved the show! Central Illinois has more to offer than corn fields and flat lands, we have some awesome local talent, and it's nice to see someone who deserves the recognition make their dreams come true.

Saw Pokey last week, and it was one of the best shows I have attended in a very long time. Pokey is like Cab Calloway in the way he puts on his show, and the band is terrific.
