Tyler Ramsey of Band of Horses: Club Cafe 10/13/11

Tyler Ramsey of Band of Horses recently performed an acoustic set at Club Cafe in Pittsburgh’s South Side. The tour is in support of his recent album, The Valley Wind. Geekstar.com was in attendance and took some stills along with a video of Ramsey performing his single, The Valley Wind.

Ramsey is perhaps most immediately recognizable as the tall, lean guitarist in Band Of Horses, having played with them since 2007, starting before the release of their breakthrough album, Cease To Begin. A well-established and praised guitar player and singer in the burgeoning music scene of Asheville, NC where he calls home, he first learned to play music on piano before moving to the guitar. Ramsey grew up listening to and studying country-blues guitar players like Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi John Hurt, and American finger pickers like John Fahey and Leo Kottke, absorbing their sound and making it all his own.

Ramsey released his self-titled debut in 2004 and followed it in 2008 with A Long Dream About Swimming Across The Sea (Echo Mountain Records), which was praised by NPR(World Café – “Heartwarming, delicate, and comforting”), Stereogum (‘Artist To Watch’),WNYC’s Soundcheck, and Popmatters, among others.  That album – a collection of haunting and atmospheric songs that exude a markedly fluid, easy grace – was re-released by Brown Records/Fat Possum in January 2011.
