The Haunted Windchimes
The Haunted Windchimes sound is very traditional folk and blues and the songs have a vintage quality, as if they might have been written yesterday or 75 years ago. The groups’ subtle and collective genius features original material written by all four members.
It’s the vocal harmonies that really set them apart, a three-headed juggernaut of Desirae Garcia (ukulele), Chela Lujan (banjo) and Inaiah Lujan (guitar). When their voices blend, it is nothing short of beautiful. The sound is often moody and melancholy, but it is always deeply affecting. That sound is embroidered by the instrumental mastery of Mike Clark (harmonica, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and concertina).
Grant Sabin is a slide guitar/harmonica/vocals/stomp box player from Colorado Springs Colorado. Many have said his style is comparable to that of John Hammond, Son House, and Tom Waits, but with a youthfull twist of energy seen more in rock and roll and thrash-grass bands. Grant put out a solo album in 2007 entitled Listen and Learn and later that year released a limited number of EPs called "The Smoke EP" with his first version of The Revelators featuring Andrew Koken on Bass and Lucian Rowland on the Mandolin. In 2008 Grant and Andrew recorded "Cold Day in Hell" with producers John Dehoyos and Phillip Rayl. After 3 failed attempts of accurately representing their live sound on an album Grant and Andrew tapped into new energy in Hans Schopen, a Heavy Metal drummer from Maui, Hawaii. They put Hans behind a 5 piece jazz kit and the result is what is now known as Grant Sabin and the Revelators. The group is now working on an experimental pseudo-live album with Ian Gott and Funny Bunny Records. Grant's trio is a force to be reckoned with; however his solo work which he is still very much devoted to seems to be coming back more frequently by popular demand.
