Americana/Roots singer-songwriter-guitarist Paul Edelman and his band Jangling Sparrows, return to Bristol to perform at O’Mainnin’s Pub, 712 State St., Wednesday, April 18. Showtime: 10pm. Free. Info: (423) 844-0049 or visit facebook.com/omainninspub/.
The band’s most recent album 140 Nickels album was voted a “Best Indie Album of 2017” selection by the L.A. Music Critic Awards, who added, “Watch for these guys near the top of the Americana music scene!”. Guitarist-vocalist Edelman explains how the album title 140 Nickels came about: “I was romanticizing about how broke I was and didn’t care…the idea that I could sit there and pound through a six-pack and write songs and not care about anything and when I ran out of beer I’d would scrape up enough change from my couch to go down to the corner bodega and buy another six pack. I was really hungry and had a lot of passion of what I was doing. I don’t want to forget that.” Read the rest of Edelman’s recent interview in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, here.
140 Nickels is available for purchase at www.janglingsparrows.com and has received stellar reviews from national publications No Depression, The Alternate Root, Music Connection and more, plus national/international airplay.
