Born out of a love of the early years of swing, americana and rock ‘n ‘roll, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks and roadhouses. With Seattle upright bassist and vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, the band features skilled and versatile musicians who share the love of the American song traditions and a desire to offer a fresh angle on them. The band is currently touring and promoting the March 2018 release for their second album “Western Soul”, which has already received glowing national press and repeat airplay.
“I love this album. I love the sound of it. I love the feel of it. I love the idea of it”. Frank Gutch Jr. – No Depression
“Pereira thrives as a lead singer and frontman handling this arrangement <of St. James Infirmary>, never quite being swallowed by the grand tinges of rock and gospel that they invoke into the song. Instead, the entire band delivers their take on “St. James Infirmary” with a sort of slinkling and dark agency. – Jonathan Frahm – PopMatters
