When Olson left to pursue a solo career, Louris singularly took over the songwriting role in The Jayhawks creating the band's enduring sound on some of their best selling and well-received albums including Smile (2000) and Rainy Day Music (2003). Louris continues to write and tour with the longtime core group of Marc Perlman, Karen Grotberg, and Tim O'Reagan. While the touring line-up has changed over the years and Olson briefly reappeared in 2010 to record and tour, this classic lineup maintains a commitment to adventure and forward motion in their shows and in their recordings. Their latest album, Paging Mr. Proust (2016), was produced in Portland with Peter Buck and Tucker Martine.
These recent years have been a long and exciting road for folk-rocker John Irion, who joins Son Volt on their spring tour with his springtime solo album Driving Friend --- and the ride just keeps getting better. Working members of Dawes, Wilco, Nicki Bluhm, and The Gramblers on his newest effort, Irion keeps good musical company, and looking back on his works, it's easy to see why. Best known for his folk explorations with his wife Sarah Lee Guthrie, including their recent Wassaic Way produced by Jeff Tweedy, and his latest rock venture with US ELEVATOR, which Will Hermes of Rolling Stone Magazine praised for its "songs that are hand crafted as lovingly as the jeans on the back of After the Goldrush," Irion continues to expand his musical range. With his uncannily Young-Nilsson-esque voice to his melodic and lyrical mettle, Irion is one of the most exciting artists across the folk-rock spectrum
"Songs that feel as lovingly hand-crafted as the jeans on the back of After the Gold Rush."
