Dave Alvin and the Guilty Ones
July 22, 2011
A fourth generation Californian, Dave Alvin, Grammy Award-winning singer songwriter and self described “barroom guitarist,” is widely considered to be one of the pivotal founders of the current Americana music scene. Combining elements of blues, folk, R+B, rockabilly, country
and garage rock and roll with lyrical inspiration from local writers and poets, Alvin has mixed his varied musical and literary influences into his own unique, updated version of traditional American music.
Alvin and his band “The Guilty Ones” are set to release their new studio album “Eleven Eleven,” by Yep Roc Records this summer. The album has been described as his most driving, electric blues and rock oriented album since 2004’s critically acclaimed Ashgrove.
