"Kuchi Guru (Lexington, KY) Folk/Americana"

"Trailer Park Thrash" and "Screwgrass" are a couple of the creative descriptors this Kentucky quartet have yielded from listeners. While Tom Waits is an obvious touchstone - frontguy Jimi Bliss' voice is a nice combo of grit and grace - Kuchi Guru cooks up its own unique batch of Americana due tot he presence of a mood-altering electric violin and other odd instrumentation. That they hail from a trailer park only adds another layer of mystery. DIG: Tom Waits, John Prine at a junkyard, a less garish Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Hailing from a trailer park in Jessamine County, Kentucky, Kuchi Guru has had many incarnations over many years. The current line-up has been playing live shows in the area, featuring original favorites as well as songs from the recently released "WOW!!!" The group's sound is hard to describe accurately in words. Tom Waits-ish, Celtic Folk, Trailer Park Thrash, Screwgrass and ethereal are just a few of the ways listeners have described the sound and feel. Kuchi Guru is an eclectic mix of styles and genres. From old-timey to contemporary, Kuchi Guru roams the world and their own musical backyard.
Kuchi Guru is an exciting new spin on the blues, folk and music of the world, with a dash of Bluegrass betraying the bands roots in KY.
