Album Notes
New York producer JP Bowersock “discovered” Percival on an internet forum late last year after hearing the band’s rough homemade demo. Bowersock, who has worked with Ryan Adams & The Cardinals and The Strokes among others, immediately summoned Percival to New York where he produced their five-song debut CD, “Indian Summer,” now available on the band’s own label, Territory Records. The Lawrence Journal-World has complimented Percival’s “well-oiled take on melodic alt-country tunesmithing,” and recommends that “fans of the Lost Highway label,” the home of Ryan Adams, Lucinda Williams, Elvis Costello, and Lyle Lovett, “would do well to give the band a listen.”

Although only a year has passed since singer-songwriters Justin Klinksick and Oliver Buck first conceived of merging their talents into a singular project in 2005, Percival has already established themselves as one of the most compelling—and hardest-touring—live bands in their region. Now complete as a five-piece, with the addition of Tom Reid on drums, Mark Harvey on bass, and Brett Resnick on pedal steel, organ, and guitar, Percival explores the rich territory where old-school rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly, electric blues, and roadhouse country overlap. Influenced by artists such as Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, Neil Young, The Band, Johnny Cash, The Old 97’s, Chris Isaak, Uncle Tupelo, Hank Williams, and The Grateful Dead, Percival plays music that exudes a timeless quality.

While most notable for the strength of their original songs, Percival also stands out for their commitment to the lost art of ensemble playing. Each member of Percival is a multi-instrumentalist, and their live shows highlight in-the-moment playing that reveals a traditional approach to old-fashioned, unironic musicianship, and a genuine love for sharing their music with a live audience.

When it comes to recording and performing, Percival strives for a sense of directness, honesty, and immediacy that they feel is sorely lacking in most popular music today. “It’s all about the song,” Buck says. “It’s about creating music that is authentic and genuine and that refuses to adopt the trendy affectations and gimmicks of the moment. We want to make music that still sounds good 10, 20, or even 50 years from now. So I guess our job is two-fold: to write good songs, but also to let them breathe and exist on their own terms.”

Currently, Percival is touring hard, playing local stints and booking regional and national mini-tours in order to build their regional following into a national one. With upwards of forty original songs already written only a year after forming, the band hopes to get back into the studio soon to record a full-length CD.
