Put simply, without any of that pigeon hole nonsense, this is great pop music. The Fishermen Three was formed back in 2008 thanks to mutual friends and a tour of France and the UK as ‘the Cutoffs’ in Jack Lewis & the Cutoffs. Simon Beins and Raphi Gottesman loved playing music together so much, when they returned to their home town of New York they didn’t stop.
Simon, it seems, is a bit of an old hand. He’s played all the big venues and festivals throughout Europe and the states. Touring as The Wows with everyone from NME darlings The Cribs and The Thermals to some of Simple Folk Radio’s favourite musicians, groups such as the Jeffrey Lewis Band, Herman Dune, Turner Cody and The Wave Pictures.
Despite the release of ‘Rosina on Every Balcony’, an amazing album that I wholeheartedly recommend to one and all, a string of singles including a split release with The Black Swans, they’ve received their biggest success so far working in cinema, winning Best Score at last years prestigious SXSW festival for The City Dark
This session is very much how we like it, a simple affair. You can hear the world slowly roll by a bedroom window in Brooklyn as The Fishermen Three serenade you with beautiful pop songs, or as as they describe it, “mystical country music and blues of every colour”.
