I am thrilled to premiere the video for “Tightrope’s Edge,” the first song from Seattle’s Graig Markel and the 88th St. Band‘s debut album. The self-titled album, which I hope is just the first of many, has a retro soul sound. That sound works extremely well with Markel’s silky vocals. For this project, Markel worked with Nicholas Markel and Joe Patterson – the result? One of the best albums I have heard in quite some time.
I saw the premiere show at Barboza last month; again, a really cool show and must be the first of many. So, please enjoy “Tightrope’s Edge,” featuring Markel and some actual tightrope artists:
