Bad Mother Nature, an original band formed in 2016, consists of guitarist/bassist duo Axel Ahrens and Corey Allred, pianist Ryan Allred, and drummer Jon McCann. Inspired by the classic rock titans of the 1960s and '70s, they balance driving guitar-riff work with the nuanced, progressive piano that allows their music to range from soft to rocking - often within the same song.
Their debut EP “Strange Weather,” featuring Colin Curtin on drums, presented a range of styles from the upbeat blues-rock Honey Rider, to the instrumental guitar piece Persephone, to the anthemic ballad I’ll Make You a Thief. UK rock magazine Fireworks profiled the album and the band.
Their latest feature LP “Porcelain Martyr” was released Feb. 8, 2019. A departure from the raw guitar-heavy style of the previous EP, the album is a conceptually thematic overture of progressive rock, utilizing more backing vocals and harmonies, piano-driven riffs, and instrumental experimentation.
This broacast will also be streamed live on kdrt.org.
“Wagons Ho.” Most of the pioneers that settled the west traveled by wagon. The wagon trains of Conestogas and Prairie Schooners must have been a sight to see as their white canvas tops rolled across the prairies. Today’s show is an homage to these pioneer wagons that played such an important role in American western history.
Coming up at 8 pm tonight on Jazz After Dark! Cool jazz, vocals, some mellow Coltrane, and more.
