VOTD: Ol' Savior

Ain’t heard of them? Well that’s because they’re a local band that currently only sort of exists.

When Blackwatch Studios’ Jarod Evans speaks, people listen. The guy’s worked with all the best local musicians around, and — with partner Chad Copelin — regularly works with regional and national-caliber talent. So when I woke up to find a Facebook message from Evans saying that Tulsa jack-of-all-trades artist Nathan Price has developed “2 or 3 records’ worth” of material with Broncho bandmate Ben King over the last two years, well, I got pretty excited.

Evans said that they’re looking to get an Ol’ Savior album out in early 2012. He also was kind enough to upload two unnamed tracks to Vimeo, which you can hear below. They’re soulful and steady, mostly acoustic, rich with grand piano and just a hint of synthesizer as some spice. Price sings low, and King sings high, and they complement each other beautifully.

I just can’t really get over how talented these guys are, especially considering how starkly this stuff contrasts against the punk music they’re gearing up to tour behind.

You can follow the band on Twitter and like them on Facebook for further updates.

No longer holding back the years.


Rod Lott
Don't tell anyone, but in my first year of high school, I owned a couple of Simply Red cassettes, purchased from Sound Warehouse. If you clicked on the link to read this review, it's likely you did, too.
