Strange Vine’s earthy, energetic music is a fusion of blues, psychedelic, and traditional American rock. It’s a sound born of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains, from two men who were raised there. Ian Blesse plays drums and Rhodes piano (simultaneously), while Toby Cordova fleshes out the songs with a rotating arsenal of guitars (including one made from a cigar box). Both contribute vocals toward a rich, layered sound that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
In just a few year’s time, Strange Vine has shared the stage with acts like Cage The Elephant, Band Of Skulls, The Growlers, Delta Spirit, Lord Huron, B.B. King, Robin Trower, Kurt Vile, Wild Belle, FUZZ, White Denim, Pokey LaFarge, Meat Puppets, Reignwolf, JEFF The Brotherhood…….
