Biography

Performing Songwriter has described Black’s sound as, “intimate, haunting, and wonderfully mesmerizing.”

On the 15 track throughout Autumn Days, Black changes color with the season - warm melodies led by his acoustic guitar, (“Don’t Go Tellin’ The Whole World,” “Traffic and Sound,” “Autumn Days”) intermix with the lively piano and electric guitar driven rock numbers (“Long Beach,” Rollercoaster,” “Certain Kind of Light”) and the tenderness of a father singing to his son (“You Are My Sunshine”).

Accompanying Black on the disc are his longtime band members - Rocco Bidlovski (drums, percussion) and Gianni Neiviller (bass) and Luther Russell (guitar, piano, wurli, tambourine) – and musicians Dave Palmer (piano, wurli), David Henry (cello), Sarah Watkins (violin, vocals), Doug Levitt (mooger fooger, piano), Will Golden (guitar), Brad Gordon, Sara Tucek (singer), and Joe Zimmerman (bass).

Formerly known as Gus, he released two CDs for Almo Sounds – the self-titled 1996 debut and the critically acclaimed 1999 follow-up Word of Mouth Parade. After a four-year hiatus, Gus Black (as he is now known) returned in 2003 with Uncivilized Love (immergent Records / 5.1 Entertainment).
