From Northern California comes Casual Fog, not a description of a weather formation, although they really do know their fogs up that way, having a variety of them, depending on whether you’re on the coast or in the valleys. But Casual Fog is the brainchild of Ryan Donnelly, who’s so far, over the past 15 years, released 9 albums and EPs. ‘Comin’ For Thee’, from the latest album, ‘In Still Delight’, which was released on September 18, rolls in stealthily, just like the fog in the band’s name, and before you know it, you’re completely subsumed.
Northern California singer-songwriter Jackie Greene has played with the Black Crowes and Gov’t Mule, and toured nationally with BB King, Mark Knopfler, Huey Lewis, Buddy Guy, and many more. He’s performed at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, and played with Joan Osborne and Steve Gorman in the supergroup Trigger Happy. He’s played alongside the likes of Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, the latter of whom called him “the cowboy poet of Americana and Blues”.
