She's played with Shakey Graves and Spiritualized, and, soon, she'll open for Jenny Lewis and Social Distortion through the fall. But country radio hasn't been so friendly to her outlaw-spirited songs, which extol the benefits of one-night-stands and spill over with slinky, Seventies-era inspirations cased in a streetwise, modern shell that's as unapologetic as Johnny Cash's middle finger.” – Marissa Moss, Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone hailed SZLACHETKA as one of the 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know, describing his forthcoming album as "a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland... a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he's left behind in the rearview mirror."

SZLACHETKA (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) draws your gaze back to a simpler time when music was less about stylized production and more about its experiential nature. His songwriting finds inspiration in the threads that connect us, weaving a tapestry of familiar moments that pay homage to the past while leaning into a future that promises both wonder and grace.

Brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum didn't grow up with the plan of playing music together — it took until they were in their late teenage years to start learning the guitar and realizing the endless bounds of their voices, particularly in unison. It was then that they started listening to Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Jimmie Rodgers and other old country and blues greats, gigging around their hometown of Minneapolis and gaining a following for their vintage-leaning, pristine harmonies and ability to make time-warped but vibrant music. It was enough to catch the eye (or ear) of fellow retro-revivalist JD McPherson, who offered to produce their debut LP You're Dreaming — a slick and satisfying throwback to an era where concise melodies and tight vocals were far more praised than studio trickery.​ – Rolling Stone​

"We grew up listening to Radiohead and the Beatles and Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd," says Griffin Sherry, guitarist/singer in The Ghost Of Paul Revere. "Everyone assumed we were a bluegrass band because we were playing these traditional instruments, but we weren’t writing traditional music. We were just writing songs with the instruments we had."

The result is a sound that the Portland, Maine-based band describes as "holler folk," not because it involves a lot of hollering, per se, but because it invokes the rich communal tradition of field hollers, with their call-and-response melodies, sing-along hooks, and densely layered harmonies. That sense of musical camaraderie is essential to everything The Ghost of Paul Revere does, and nowhere is it more evident than their sophomore album, ''Monarch.'

The band captures that same dynamic presence on their new album, Changing Shades, delivering their exceptional songwriting and bluegrass roots with the punch of a rock band.“We wanted to duplicate the energy of our live shows. It’s a perfect mixture of improvisation and composition. The record shows how fearless we’ve become in the last year,” says Andy Dunnigan, lead songwriter, singer and dobro player. They cut Changing Shades in a lighthearted, week-long session at SnowGhost Music in Whitefish, MT with engineer Brett Allen (The Avett Brothers, Kris Kristofferson, Béla Fleck) and co-producer Rob Gordon (Elephant Revival). “It was a breeze,” Dunnigan says. “Rob got us to focus on what makes each song special.
