Espers I CD
The critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album by Espers.
Espers started just a few short years ago as a trio from Philadelphia featuring singer/songwriter Greg Weeks, Meg Baird and Brooke Sietinsons. Their infectious sound quickly brought them increased attention and stints performing with legends like Brigitte St. John, The Incredible String Band and Michael Hurley.
Over the past year, Espers have dazzled audiences at music festivals in the Midwest & Northeast of America and have often expanded the nucleus of the group to a mesmerizing multipiece act. Their magical self-titled debut combines the elemental sound of acid-folk with the baroque arrangements of late 60s chamber rock. Fully versed in the sumptuous vernacular of drug music, the cradle of Appalachian song, and the succinct truths of the three-minute pop ballad, Espers is an irresistible collection of sweet and subtle songs essential for fans of Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Jackson C. Franck, Linda Perhacs, Bread, Love & Dreams and Bert Jansch. Espers give us the sound of music the way it should be heard - with the ease, infectious grace and absolute beauty of an ever expansive trio bound for always greater pastures.
