Sonofmel & the Slideman

Layering acoustic grooves under spoken-word travel stories, all frosted over with spacious slide and specialty guitars, northern Wisconsin-based John Adler and Jordan Grunow spin ethereal synergy into their own brand of electric folk with edge. It’s outlaw Americana with a passport, bringing the foreign home to the familiar. Since the release of a debut self-titled album in 2017, the duo has played more than 200 shows, including a 2018 residency at Superior’s Cedar Lounge and opening gigs for Chastity Brown, Eric Koskinen and Paul Mayasich. They’re working on a second album with Tom Fabjance at Sacred Heart Music Center, as well as a live album recorded at Beaner’s Central.
