Sanders Bolhke

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sanders Bohlke’s sound is very similar to Ray LaMontagne, with a bit of Alexi Murdoch. His music is acoustic guitar singer-songwriter fare, his poetic lyrics tinged with bittersweet memories and hope for the future. And his voice has a strong range capable of reaching a falsetto pitch that Justin Timberlake would envy.

Raised in the small, north Mississippi town of Sardis, Sanders Bohlke stumbled onto the music scene somewhat by accident, after recording a folk album in the nearby indie-music hub of Oxford. This self-titled first release was hailed as passionate and praised for its honesty. That level of honesty is what Bohlke strives for, and his search for it has taken him across some fairly expansive musical territory in the time since he released his debut. He’s hit the road, sharing stages with artists such as Badly Drawn Boy, Tom Morello and Gomez and, along the way, compiled an impressive collection of songs — songs that, in an unusual move, have been released as EP’s and digital singles. Working with producer Jeffrey Cain, tracks such as ‘The Weight Of Us,’ ‘Search and Destroy,’ ‘Fighter Pilot,’ ‘The War’ and ‘Quiet Ye Voices’ are far from uniform but alike in their diversion from his earlier work — the tone is darker and the instrumentation more complex. Inspired by these new directions, Sanders is currently in the studio recording new music for a full-length album to be released in 2011.
