Cloudless Sky CD cover Cloudless Sky

After a wait that could be best termed "a while," Boyd Bristow has made his first solo recording on Maxine/Audiophile. It is a celebratory collection of folk, R&B, country, gospel, and rock and roll. Featured are some of Boyd's best songs, along with excellent works from fellow South Dakotans Tom Peterson, Bruce Preheim and Dennis Westphal. Cloudless Sky was produced by master musician and recordist Chris Gage at MoonHouse Studio in Austin, Texas. Chris and Boyd go back "a long while." With the help of a cast of great players, and especially aided by the beautiful backing vocals of Christine Albert, they have created a deeply satisfying recording.

Comin' Right Up

April 2015. This is a very special month for concerts...and album releases. Coming up on April 11 (my birthday, by the way), this Saturday night, East of Westreville will be playing at the Orpheum in Sioux Falls as part of Jami Lynn's release concert of her fourth album. I have heard the album and I must tell is a stunning work. I mean, it's really good. She and her band of Dalton Coffey and Andrew Reinartz will be headlining the concert. Maybe some of East of Westreville's listeners have not yet heard Jami, and if so, they will become fans of hers, like me. And maybe some of her followers have not heard East of Westreville, yet. This could be a very cool evening of experiences. Here's the ticket info: The show is partially sponsored by the South Dakota Arts Council with funding through the Department of Tourism and The South Dakota Friends of Traditional Music. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the concert. Tickets are available at the PREMIER Center Keloland Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online through, and charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000. there.

Then, on April 18th, Blueberry Buckle will be inducted into the South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame....and we are releasing a two CD retrospective of the band on that day. The CD project follows us over the seven years we were together and it includes one disc of live recordings and one disc of studio recordings, including the studio album we recorded at Media One in Sioux Falls and never got around to releasing. I'll try to write more about this at a later date. The Blueberry Buckle double album, "Singin' in the Band" is a Maxine/Audiophile release and will be available through this web site. The release date is April 18. Thanks!
