Joe Pug - WindfallJoe Pug - Windfall

Possessing an unwavering faith in conflicted characters and a strong allegiance to nurtured narratives, singer-songwriter Pug’s modern folk-blues lullabies are lined in refined curbside revivals and set to restless first-person recollections as slow, groaning slide wipes across prairie twang and crisp pickin’ rocks each cradled verse. Regrouping after a grueling tour, “Windfall,” represents the former Chicago resident’s renewed enthusiasm for refreshed perspectives gathering resonant reexaminations captured in respected reflections while addressing bargain-basement karma inside ill-fated crossroads and eroded footholds. A galvanizing gallery of street-corner angels washed in free-spirited weariness and broken-hearted martyrs seeking bittersweet relief populates, “Windfall,” in home-spun gumption, optimistic wisdom and road-tested resilience. Check out this talented craftsman when Joe returns April 10th playing Madison’s High Noon Saloon alongside Field Report’s Chris Porterfield.
