The Things You Can't See - EP; Fall 2007




Potemkin Village offers an eclectic sound with a broad appeal. PV’s music has been described as “loud, sometimes bitter folk”, drawing elements from many sources and displaying their diverse backgrounds. Diversity and honesty are key values for Potemkin Village and it shows. From the inspiring Only For You, to the bitter epitaph, Hand Grenade, PV’s music comes from the heart, hoping to touch yours.

The guys have each spent most of their lives involved in music in one form or another. Each play a number of instruments and are working on incorporating some of these into their stage show.

Drew’s background lies in piano and theatre, and he has performed locally in both film and on stage. James started out as a drummer and has performed with musical theatre and on stage with various bands. The "two guys with guitars" thing is new for Drew and James, but is proving to be rewarding - their different backgrounds bring both unique musical talents and performance styles to the PV stage show.

Both guys have fulltime day jobs that make the pursuit of fame even more difficult. Jobs provide stability, but stability isn’t always what a rockstar needs. Balancing a career with dreams of fame and fortune is a difficult task.

PV’s challenge in the near future is to continue to perform and build a following locally. The band gets better with every show and will continue to do so.
