“AMERICAN GRIOTS” OUT NOW!
(March 10, 2021) The world is still sheltered inside; however, hitmaking duo Louis York (Chuck Harmony & Claude Kelly) knows how to make us feel like we are at a live show. Today, the band released live visuals for their smooth and sexy single “Velvet” off their album American Griots. Directed by Jeremy Ryan, the band sets the mood as Claude Kelly commands the stage with his raspy vocals taking the viewer to a dimly lit club embarrassed in their lover’s arms.
“Is it soft and smooth, mysterious and rude, when I get close to it, does it feel like velvet?”
Louis York’s American Griots is available on all DSPs as well as on vinyl on weirdoworkshop.com. Originally released in 2019, the project is a double (2) LP and is a well-crafted theatrical experience starting from the needle dropping on side A until the end on Side D. As a bonus, the vinyl features the band’s ever-popular jazz standard “I Enjoy You.”
As the country works to get back on its feet, Louis York will join the legendary John Oates (Hall & Oates) for the Oates Song Fest 7908 on March 20. During this free webcast to raise money for Feeding America (click here), the festival will feature a wide range of singer-songwriters, including Darryl Hall, Bob Weir, Dave Grohl, Jim James, Sammy Hagar, Keb Mo, Shawn Colvin, Michael Franti, Saxsquatch, and more.
