Over the last decade, Pokey has won the hearts of music lovers across the globe with his creative mix of early jazz, string ragtime, country blues and western swing. Moving quickly from breakthrough artist to leading musical figure, he’s earned two consecutive Independent Music Awards for Best Americana Album (Riverboat Soul and Middle of Everywhere). In 2013, he signed with Jack White’s Third Man Records to release his fifth full-length album, Pokey LaFarge, and last year released his latest work, Manic Revelations, revealing his unending passion for songwriting.
Pokey LaFarge is a musician. He is a storyteller. He is a feeler of feelings. He is a narrator of the messy, unkempt American experience. He sits, he watches, he writes. Everything that’s worth happening happens in his songs. Like the long line of writers and performers he descends from, music isn’t something Pokey does – it’s something he is.
