Jeffrey Foucault & Cold Satellite
Cold Satellite is a six-piece rock band centered on the collaboration between critically acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault and award-winning poet Lisa Olstein. After a very well received debut in 2010, they've recently recorded "Cavalcade," a sophomore album that both refines and concentrates the band's signature amalgam of rock, blues, and country. Described by legendary music critic Greil Marcus as having "a country feel that puts the people who live in the Nashville charts to shame. Cold Satellite pairs Lisa Olstein's visceral and imagistic language with Jeffrey Foucault's lyrical sensibility and the rawboned authority of a rock band to create a stripped-down ethos that hearkens back to records by Crazy Horse, the Faces, Led Zeppelin, and CCR. Says Marcus: "A deep ditch electric guitar takes a country song into the blues, and lets it go back where it came from." This project marks an exciting new direction for Ark favorite Jeffrey Foucault, and a treat for lovers of roots music everywhere.
