Laurel Premo’s latest solo work presents original and traditional music voiced on finger-style

electric guitar and lap steel. Perhaps by its most honest classification “roots guitar,” the sonic

vocabulary of Golden Loam is informed by guitar’s antecedents in American traditions - fiddle

and banjo, the rhythms, melody and intonation therein, as well as that music’s relationship to

movement. Glowing, droning, tugging, scraping, revolving, Premo bears renewed electric dirt,

the golden loam layered by centuries of folk.

Following The Iron Trios (2019), Premo’s sophomore release builds on the dark roots world she

arranged, with seeking, untethered delivery and a masterful use of space, on a dynamic wave of

warm, gritty sustain. Laurel’s vocals on two pieces ‘Hop High’ and ‘I Am A Pilgrim’ are traditional

calls beaconing the guitar’s response, and fold in timberly like additional instrumental lines

sustaining the drone.

Golden Loam was self produced and recorded during the pandemic lockdown of summer/fall

2020. The majority of the record is solo performance, but two featured collaborators are woven

in to this embodied rhythmic collection. Percussive dancer Nic Gareiss (Michigan) appears on

tracks 5 & 9, and bones player Eric Breton (Quebec) on track 3.

Laurel Premo is a Michigan-based artist who has been writing, arranging music and touring

since 2009 with vocal and instrumental roots acts. She is internationally known from her duo, Red Tail Ring.
