Demons or angels? You decide!

Released as a fitting tribute to drummer extraordinaire Paul Triff, who passed shortly after this September 2015 gig, Live at the Mercury Lounge captures folk noir goddess Lorraine Leckie's posse in their natural habitat - the concert stage!

Featuring (as usual) bravura performances by Ms. Leckie, violinist Pavel Cingl in John Cale/Jean Luc-Ponty mode, and local guitar legend Hugh Pool - the cat who stitches it all together is bassist Charles DeChants. Groovin' with a masterful command of rhythm and space, DeChants' legato phrasing and warm tone affords a heavenly pocket to further fortify Ms. Leckie's oft wicked libretto.
