Pokey Lafarge

In The Blossom Of Their Shade

    Pokey LaFargeʼs 7th studio solo album, ‘In The Blossom Of Their Shade’, showcases the positivity of coming out of the darkness and into the light.

    When the 2020 global pandemic hit, LaFargeʼs rigorous work ethic powered him through the potentially challenging creative period. As days became a couple of months, songs blossomed from embryonic ideas into fully-formed ones and he was ready to move on, which typified his mindset as a working artist.

    With this record, LaFarge captures the thematic notion of being the perfect summer afternoon soundtrack... the type of music you want to listen to while having a cocktail with your significant other.

    It makes sense musically as well - LaFarge intentionally crafted songs that created space and have melodies that can glide throughout a composition thatʼs a far cry from the swing and blues-infused songs of his earlier work.

    LaFarge is an artist who refuses to rest on his laurels and compromise. He's always motivated and ready to create. ‘In The Blossom Of Their Shade’ is one of LaFargeʼs strongest and most mature efforts to date.

    Pokey Lafarge

    Central Time

      Pack up your portable record player and sit by the Ohio River blasting this gem of a tribute to living in the good ol' Midwest. Featuring super snazzy artwork and non-album B Side "St. Louis Crawl." Sitting at the crossroads of early jazz, country blues and western swing, these two homegrown tracks are enough to make any damn yankee, mountain man or California dreamer reconsider their stomping grounds.

      Pokey Lafarge and his band bring a focus and energy to the American Roots genre with infectious original material that sits at the crossroads of early jazz, country blues and western swing. With his effortless charisma and distinctive charm, Pokey has crafted a genre all his own--and one that extends well beyond the music alone.

      Summertime is the right time for Pokey’s sun-blessed riverboat style, and this August will mark our release of his next full length LP / CD titled simply Pokey LaFarge (produced by Old Crow Medicine Show frontman Ketch Secor).

      • Lafarge previously released a 7-inch single on Third Man in 2011, titled “Chitlin Cookin’ Time in Cheatham County”
      • Critical acclaim and dedicated following in the UK where a performance on Later…with Jools Holland reached a nation-wide audience.. the Hootenanny nonetheless!
      • In addition to his featured vocal performance on the Jack White’s song “I Guess I Should Go To Sleep” Lafarge also opened select dates for White on his Blunderbuss tour.
