Nestled comfortably somewhere between rock star and Americana crooner stands the talented Pokey LaFarge.
Beloved by both Garrison Keillor and Jack White, Pokey LaFarge describes his own music—a mix of old-time jazz, blues, ragtime, and string-band music from the past century—as timeless rather than retro.
With his newest album, In the Blossom of Their Shade, Pokey LaFarge set out to create a body of work that paired emotional lyrics with a killer groove and grabby melodies. The singer-songwriter’s career includes nine albums to date, including a stint on Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Written by LaFarge and co-produced with Chris Seefried, the new album is one of LaFarge’s strongest and most mature lyrical efforts to date. The album’s title is taken from a lyric in “Mi Ideal,” a song that sonically draws influences from the Southwest, South America, and Caribbean. The distant warmth of the music, especially rhythmically, adeptly coincides with the longing that’s expressed in the lyrics. With this album, LaFarge intentionally crafted songs that created space and have melodies that can glide throughout a composition that’s a far cry from the swing and blues-infused songs of his earlier work.
