CROSS-POLLINATION XC - TUES APR 4TH - 7:30-10 PM
ISAAC WARDELL
CHEYENNE

"The songs are simple, country-tinged affairs, but the thick instrumentation adds a lush pop sensibility: listening is like walking through a blossoming garden in your cowboy boots." -The Pulse

Isaac's music has always been heavily influenced by the Beatles, and other great rock music of the late 1960s. The new record showcases many of these sounds, with an anolog sound and heavy use of melatron and other vintage keyboards. Many of the songs on this record also reveal an alt-country bent, which has been a steady stream of Isaac's music for the last several years, stemming from his love for songwriters such as Townes Van Zandt, Jeff Tweedy, and Richard Buckner.

"If you combine the breathy, deep vocals of Pedro The Lion's David Bazan with the wistfullness of Sufjan Stevens, you might get Cheyenne's Beau Jennings. (Fittingly, I Am Haunted's co producer James Mcallister has worked with both musicians.) Jennings differs by approaching the singer/songwriter sphere from a frontier-Western perspective, addressing themes of spritituality and heartache during times of turmoil." - Magnet Magazine

Since its 2005 release on Kansas City's independent label The Record Machine, Cheyenne has promoted I Am Haunted, I Am Alive with performances throughout U.S., including dates with Starlight Mints, John Vanderslice, Sebadoh, Aqueduct, and Magnolia Electric Co. Having relocated from Oklahoma to Brooklyn, Cheyenne's live show has taken advantage of its new neighbors and continues to feature an ever-revolving cast of musicians, including members of Fruit Bats, Starlight Mints, and Sufjan Steven's Illinoisemakers.

June 2007 saw the release of The Land Rush EP on Oklahoma based label Clerestory AV.
