Erik Koskinen Band with Jeremy Moses Curtis at The White Lilac

April 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Erik Koskinen brings his band from Minneapolis along with Bassist Jeremy Moses Curtis.


Erik Koskinen is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, whose music is not categorized by sub-genres.  Stylistically he is on his own while heavily influenced by American roots music. The rhythmic integrity and musical tone is as important as the lyrical content and the artistic intent. Koskinen has reverently entered the anthology of uniquely crafted wry songs with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ry Cooder while speaking as plainly as your neighbor. The Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Koskinen “the real deal” and “The best country songwriter in Minnesota”.


“I’ve spent my life spinning tires,” sings Jeremy Moses Curtis, sublime and weary. “I pay the bills, remember the highlights, thank my stars when the weekend arrives.” So worn out, so beautiful, like something between “Nashville Skyline” and “Blood on the Tracks,” an old Wilco ballad and Jason Isbell on NyQuil Extra Strength. As a sideman and producer, Curtis spent most of his career helping others make great stuff (Booker T, Jeffrey Foucault, Tim Gearen). On this lonely, wonderful tune — and all over new album “Midlife Chrysler” (how’s that for a fall album title?) — Curtis makes his own magic out of a sort of noir version of Americana.”
