PRESENTED BY JOSEPH KELLEY
Jus Post Bellum is an Indie-Folk band, based out of Brooklyn, New York. They play music influenced by blues, country and American Roots music. Many of their songs are inspired by events of the American Civil war and more broadly American History. They play frequently around New York City and Brooklyn as well as the greater east coast region. Last fall they toured down through Virginia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Alabama and New Orleans in support of their debut album "Devil Winter", which Deli Magazine described as having "An old time feel accented by melancholy and refinement". Jus Post Bellum at times fits squarely amidst the folk revival championed by the likes of Fleet Foxes or Mumford and Sons, but their songs tend towards the complex, darker side of American songwriting with an intense focus on lyricism and content, and a strong degree of minimalism and intent in arrangement less common to bands of this genre. Band leader Geoffrey Wilson includes among his influences everything from Bob Dylan to Bon Iver, and credits his Minnesota roots, and years living in the Hudson Valley with shaping his sound. Their shows are often markedly hushed affairs with audience members moved to silence during sparse ballads, only to be revived by classic, knee-slapping country twinged tunes about love, loss and all that falls between.
Jus Post Bellum is Geoffrey Wilson (lead vocals, guitar), Hannah Jensen (vocals), Zach Dunham (drums, percussion, vocals), and Daniel Bieber (bass, cello, vocals). All songs written and arranged by Geoffrey Wilson and Jus Post Bellum.
