In the lineage of string bands who blur the boundaries of American roots music, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem have always been standard-bearers. From bluegrass barnstormers to sultry swing, old-time gospel to bluesy folk-rock, they consistently turn in lush arrangements with stylish, unexpected choices.
Original songs fit seamlessly aside artful re-workings of Georgia Sea Islands music, Hank Williams, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen – just a few of the many places this band is willing to go. At the helm, Arbo is “blessed with an unmistakable voice, both light and sultry, with a hint of tremolo and smoke” (Acoustic Guitar). Combining wit, camaraderie and indelible songs that can shake the rafters or hush the room, Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem leaves audiences humming and hopeful.
