San Francisco-based SUPERMULE is a strange breed. As a collective of players who represent a wide range of influences, they have found common ground in the forms and themes of traditional American music. Building on this shared passion, the individual members each bring their own perspective and contributions to the band’s unique sound. Mixing traditional bluegrass instruments like banjo, guitar, and fiddle with keyboards and drums, SUPERMULE focuses on those areas where different musical strains intersect and continues the spirit of innovation and experimentation to create- as did so many pioneers in American music- a hybrid music that is simultaneously traditional and revolutionary. In short, they are a powerhouse six-piece ensemble that give a stunning live performance that you will not soon forget!!
SUPERMULE's latest EP "Pretty Little Birds" is a rock-forward collection of original songs and instrumentals by the San Francisco-based group, a heavy and eclectic follow up to their debut 2013 EP "Northern White Clouds." Described as "mind blowing" (Divide and Conquer, April 2019), the latest recordings venture deep into a sonic landscape that evokes bluegrass and folk- but results in something far more gritty, funky, soulful, and wild.
SUPERMULE is: Jim Chayka- banjo, dobro, lap steel, guitar/ Mike Emerson- keys/ Nino Moschella- drums, vocals/ Alisa Rose- violin, vocals/ Zach Sharpe- bass/ Yoseff Tucker- guitar, vocals.
