Jeffrey Foucault

Along with his rugged Midwestern sensibility and rich, evocative voice, Jeffrey Foucault is really a songwriter within the tradition of the classic American country-folk troubadours. Citing heroes like John Prine, Greg Dark brown, and Townes Vehicle Zandt, Foucault surfaced in 2001 using the stark and persuasive Miles from your Lightning. Carrying out a 2003 trio recording with wife Kris Delmhorst and Milwaukee songwriter Peter Mulvey, the Wisconsin indigenous went on to produce a set of acclaimed single LPs for the Personal Seems label (2004’s Stripping Cane and 2006’s Ghost Repeater) before documenting a 2009 tribute record of John Prine’s music. A year afterwards he started a cooperation with Boston-based poet Lisa Olstein, leading to the debut of his initial full-band project, Cool Satellite. Cool Satellite’s 2010 debut presented an audio that was even more electric powered and rock-based compared to the nation and folk of his prior albums. Folding traces of Appalachia and dark blues into his pastoral Americana, he came back in 2011 with Equine Latitudes, his 4th single record of original materials. A second Frosty Satellite discharge, Cavalcade, found its way to 2013, and Foucault started a foray into creation, helming albums by Hayward Williams, Caitlin Canty, and John Statz. He came back to his single career once more in 2015 with Sodium as Wolves, the very first release by himself BlueBlade label. The record intensely features drummer Billy Conway (Morphine), with whom Foucault started a musical relationship in 2013.
