Days of Rain
Days of Rain: Edith Grove & Bottle Tree's third album, Days of Rain, was recorded by Brett Sparks of the Handsome Family at Handsome Family Studios in Albuquerque, NM. Bio: Murder ballads, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan all meet up on the Americana frontier. Heartbreak, rye whiskey and wheels that won't quit turning are etched across the songs on Edith Grove's (real name Amanda Kooser) albums. With the band Bottle Tree, Edith takes the audience back to the 1800s in Arkansas as Hanging Judge Parker takes another life and then fast forwards to a rain soaked New Mexico highway that splits through the Plains of St. Augustine. Edith Grove takes influences ranging from hard rock to traditional folk and forges her own identity. This is a musical world where the trains never stop running, the whiskey bottle is never empty and old cars always have a few more miles left in them. Stripped down drums, sinuous bass lines and a world weary voice trademark a band that reinvents traditional Americana themes in songs that sound both contemporary and timeless. Edith Grove has played a variety of gigs from the Thirsty Ear Festival to club shows to opening for Crosby, Stills & Nash.
