Sleepy Gaucho follows in the great American artistic tradition that is the rambler’s drawl. His Panamerican influenced folk music offers up a cocktail of wry existentialism and mellow introspection that floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of its own.
Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable. The seven track debut record Another Time, while initially recorded in Madison, WI, was eventually finished after the songwriter happened to find himself drifting around an East London neighborhood for a few months.
Since returning to his hometown of Milwaukee, he began the creative process for his next project. Through fragmented stories and an eclectic mix of sounds rooted in escapism, the new album reflects on life's insistent ephemerality. Straying away from the last record's approach, he recruited the likes of veterans such as Patrick Sansone of Wilco and fellow talent ranging from local friends and Nashville session musicians for his sophomore album, Morning Light, out now via Hear Here Records.
