Press


"Songwriter Morgan Daniel mans the songwriting office while the rest of the band manages to produce his vision of the perfect
union of bluegrass, R&B, and rock-n-roll. The mandolin and banjo plucking stands well next to Gwyn Moreland's sweet female vocals, which harmonizes well alongside the stunning fretless bass lines that groove along begging you to
join them for the magical ride." - Smother.net


Stringband.com reviewed our CD: "When I first heard sounds clips of Foxglove's
self-titled CD on their web site, my first thought was "Cool". If you have to put
them in a category, the above quote calling them modern and traditional folk
would certainly fit. Yet, the band incorporates elements from many genres of
music. I hear a lot of "New Grass" influence, but I also hear some blues and
rock elements, mixed into this well-executed acoustic folk mixture. Honestly, at
times during the day I can hear some of the guitar and mandolin licks in my
head. Too cool! Gwyn's smooth, angelic voice is mesmerizing. Of course the
really outstanding feature of Foxglove is the songwriting of Morgan Daniel. Most
of the tracks are originals by Morgan and wonderfully interpreted by the whole
band. I really like it when a bass player gets a chance to solo on his instrument,
as John Bush gets to several times. And the clean, bluesy mandolin of Booie
rocks. The whole album is nicely mixed with a very clean, strong sound. Morgan
and Gwyn trade off lead vocals, and John Bush even gets to sing lead on the
Jimi Hendrix song Angel. Overall, I enjoyed the FOXGLOVE CD, and I can see
why they are such a big hit in the California folk scene. They have a mix that
can take them far. Check out their web site and get your own copy of
FOXGLOVE. You will be glad you did." - Stringband.com

Bio

Morgan and john began playing together at coffeehouses over a decade ago. Several years ago, Gwyn was invited to sit in and sing a few Gillian Welch tunes...it was immediately obvious that she was the most popular person on stage. Now a trio, the band was recording it's debut live album, "Moreland, Daniel, Bush-Live in Caspar" and Booie Volk was in the audience...he loved the music, and within several months he was playing with the band, filling in the missing solos with his mandolin wizardry. Shortly after the foursome was complete, the band assumed the name Foxglove.
