About The Cactus Blossoms
Blood Harmony. Whether it’s The Beach Boys, Bee Gees or First Aid Kit, that sibling vocal blend is the secret sauce in some of the most spine-tingling moments in popular music. The Cactus Blossoms – brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey – offer compelling evidence that this tradition is alive and well, with a deceptively unadorned musical approach that offers “creative turns of phrase, gorgeous harmonies and an ageless sound” (NPR All Things Considered). Their 2016 debut, You’re Dreaming, celebrated their country and rock influences, whereas their new, self-produced album reveals a songwriting style that has changed, evolved and gotten more modern. The brothers’ decision to produce Easy Way on their own no doubt led to the new sound, both the traditional twang of Chicago pedal steel guitarist Joel Patterson and the primal wail of free jazz saxophonist Michael Lewis are at home on the album, and it has resulted in a voice all their own.
