Felton Music Hall Presents:
Singer/songwriter Joe Kaplow lives in a four-acre mansion in the hills of Santa Cruz. Of course, he shares the space with a group of hippies, some rats, and some very dilapidated floors and walls... but it does have a swimming pool.
For Kaplow, becoming a full-time musician - and adopting the lifestyle that often accompanies it - didn’t happen by accident. Having moved from farm life and family in New Jersey to the rich Santa Cruz music community, Kaplow has often found himself living paycheck to paycheck as he departs on three-month U.S. solo tours, records music in various bedrooms of the house where he lives, rehearses with his new band and writes constantly, dedicating himself fully and lovingly to the craft of songwriting.
Kaplow’s debut album Time Spent In Between is simultaneously grounded and exploratory; the music is equal parts intimate and expansive. With raw instrumentation and earthy vocal melodies, Time Spent In Between is rich with folk songwriting brilliance.
Bobcat Rob is a songwriter and multi-Instrumentalist with a voice likened to honey drizzled over burning coals. His songs are as uplifting as they are haunting, drawing on visceral truths and common threads to weave captivating tales. From quiet to loud, reserved to explosive, each song carries its own weight and settles deep into the listener.
Engineer, Drainpipes, Beauty In The World and Popcorn Lung - the four singles released from Bobcat Rob’s forthcoming LP - venture deeper into a sound Bobcat has been cultivating in recent years that he likes to call Surf Country. Swimming, sometimes psychedelic guitar and keyboard tones with the backbone of a solid rhythm section, paired with heartfelt honest songwriting, powerful vocals and lush harmonies.
Bobcat Rob recorded 2018's A Different Horse at Sonoma County's Prairie Sun Recording Studio, a legendary spot where several notables have made albums throughout the years. The storied studio was an ideal place to record A Different Horse, which marks his first record with a more electric full band sound. The result of Bobcat Rob's debut with the Nightly Howl was fully realized alt-country with an approach similar to Uncle Tupelo. It's loud and rocking with a dose of twang. At the heart of A Different Horse, 'Don't Run', 'Holding On' and 'Doorstep' enter highly personal territory that Bobcat delivers with a depth that channel Springsteen's guttural howls throughout The River and Nebraska. Then there's 'You Can't Bring A Snake To A Knife Fight', a delicious two-minute barn dance instrumental led by a Hammond B3 organ.
