“This powerful yet gentle father-and-son duo gets their audience lost in reverie with arrestingly soulful music. Their original songs blend folk, R&B, jazz, country, and bluegrass together in songs that might be classics, or might just sound like it.” – Sarah Craig, Caffe Lena
Beaucoup Blue is the Philadelphia-based father and son duo, David and Adrian Mowry. Adrian grew up watching his father perform in coffeehouses and clubs, but discovered the guitar on his own and learned his chops in his own band. Some well-received party gigs launched them as a duo. Over the course of several albums, they have crafted original songs that pull together eclectic influences to extend the reach of Americana music. Besides being in the top 40 of Americana radio playlists, they have won first prizes in songwriting, one in Billboard Magazine’s 2010 contest, and another in the Blues & Brews Acoustic Contest in Telluride. Their voices—one, mature and mellow, the other a higher keening tenor—along with David’s plaintive slide guitar and the pulse of Adrian’s picking underscore the drama in their haunting melodies and soulful lyrics.
