The ever-industrious Scorch is writing, recording, traveling and formulating new directives. Taking a clue from hip-hop artists, he is devising a series of mixtapes under auspices of “Al Scorch’s Moving Company” as he explains, “Creating content between albums, I can reveal who I am and who I hang out with, and what my interests are outside of the music that I normally make, collaborating with everyone from rock ‘n’ rollers to soundscape artists.”
“A songwriter, vocalist, claw-hammer banjoist and rambunctious force of nature, Scorch –– solo and with his shifting collective of musicians –– regales audiences across the U.S., the UK and Ireland, “…breathing fire and brimstone,” as Alan Harrison, No Depression testifies.”
Grafting literate, character-driven song craft and Mid-American roots with a post-punk DIY attitude, Chicago-based songwriter, performer and instrumentalist Al Scorch charts a new musical topography with a five-string banjo.
