The Ebin-Rose Trio
and Davey O.
The acoustic trio Ebin-Rose is comprised of Ebin Parker, Rose Wolfe & Bobo (Dave Lavorgna) on Upright Bass. Ebin-Rose’s celtic folk rock is inspired by the legacies of Nick Drake, John Martyn, Pentangle, Sandy Denny & Joni Mitchell. The new trio configuration allows the band to take its music into a more dynamic improvisational range. They plan on having a new “live” studio EP recorded in time for their Middletown debut at The Buttonwood Tree.
It’s no surprise that Buffalo, NY born and bred songwriter Davey O. has been described by Buffalo News critic Jeff Miers as having ”a journalist’s eye for detail and poet’s ear for the well-turned observation”. Embarking on a decade-plus journey that has resulted in a collection of justly-earned, highly introspective songs, Davey crafts pure Americana that is not of the social and political consciousness, but drawn from the deep well of experience and human emotion – no hackneyed story lines, no insincere polish, just an unflinching poet’s look at life. The characters woven seamlessly into stories of which the song itself becomes the soundtrack for the movie playing inside the listener’s head.
