Sold Only As Curio
Gregory Mulkern, Nate B. Jackson, and Bianka Black played their first gig together in a Pioneer Cemetery on Halloween 2011. Being close to the dead makes for some dark music. So their first year together they played out the sorrowful stories and dark depths in their musical soul. But then just like at a wake a funny thing happened... In the end, death makes you remember why you're alive. You want to cry but then to dance, to laugh, to fuck, because what's more life affirming than sex. The answer- Music. So steadily the band has become more and more energy and dance oriented, never forgetting depth of those who came before us but also living for those who can not.
Original beat-driven music with strong vocal harmonies and unique instrumentation. Sold Only As Curio is a true genre mixer. Five core members- guitar, banjo, violin, bass, drums and two male lead singers make music influenced by decades of soul, rock, folk and world music blend into one complete magical sound.
