PAST 2017 FESTIVAL
Hailing from Florida, Robert Chaney's songs are woven from tabloid headlines, crimes, and love affairs. Stretched within their warp are threads of the dusty shellac blues of the 20s and 30s, the hyper-violent pulp noir of the 40s, the cable-knit folk revivalof the 50s, and the French celluloid new wave of the 60s. The Dylan comparisons are inevitable, though they miss the point. Chaney projects his songs through a dusty existential lens aimed at the American South, taking inspiration from such varied influences as film directors Truffaut, Godard and Melville as well as authors Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor.
