Driftwood Soldiers

June 20, 2019

Driftwood Soldier

“Finding an identity in the storytelling aspect of traditional folk, Driftwood Solider infuse everything from the blues to the punk music of their adolescence, expressed through Lyman-Schmidt’s mandolin and Szafranski’s melodic bass stylings and junk percussion—a suitcase, a license plate snare, and “the Jangler,” a bottle cap tambourine contraption. Their instrumentation combined with Lyman-Schmidt’s Nick Cave-esque jarring baritone growls produce a uniquely rootsy sound.”

Ken Shiles, CiBon, and Valerie Vuolo form the soulful, innovative Atlantic City, New Jersey-based trio: Originaire. Depending on the venue and performance, the duo often incorporates a band of diverse musical accompaniment in addition to Ken's alternately driving and swooning acoustic guitar. From sultry violin and pedal steel to pulsing support from upright bass and tasteful percussion, the stage upon which their vocals dance night after night is set with intricate perfection!
