Feeling a bit camera shy


A collaboration between two singer-songwriters of folk, traditional country, roots and rock backgrounds, Pelusa provides listeners a continually changing musical landscape. Trading lead vocal and harmony lines while alternating between combinations of bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and harmonica, the Seattle-based duo weave ideas of love, humor, loneliness, politics, and everyday hard work into songs of thoughtful commentary with no small amount of tongue-in-cheek wit. This is the unique and unmistakable sound of Pelusa. With McDermott’s quiet scratchy baritone balancing Provencher’s more assertive alto, their live performances are at once both vulnerable and bold, a foot-stomping, lonesome, wisecracking heartache of a time.
