Wisconsin's Jeffrey Foucault writes sparse small-town ballads and love songs whose lyrics are great poems in themselves. "Townes Van Zandt, Greg Brown, and Kelly Joe Phelps fans should give Foucault a listen," says the Pasadena Weekly. The country rockers and dark blues songs of this Midwestern original are truly haunting things. Jeffrey has grown tremendously as a songwriter over the ten albums he has released, and by now he's gaining raves from the likes of supercritic Greil Marcus, who describes Jeffrey's music this way: "An acoustic guitar figure comes up against drums buried far away, like a memory. The story creeps out, and stops well short of its end, though you can glimpse it. Foucault drifts over the words so lightly that they seem to fade as they’re sung, and you might stop trying to hear them as words, let them come as sounds." Jeffrey comes to Michigan with a stunning new album, "Blood Brothers."
