Formed in 2007 in Vancouver BC, Petunia And The Vipers have been described as “Real underground music... Foot- tapping country & western laced with rock and jazz." (The New York Post) and “defining the cutting edge of what is considered creative in country and roots today” (Savingcountrymusic.com)
Enigmatic, creative and completely original, Petunia And The Vipers have been busy touring across Canada, performing at summer festivals and sold out shows, as well as several tours throughout the UK, and a regular circuit from Vancouver to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between.
Fans of traditional and alt-country, old-time jazz, & blues will find each of the 10 genre-bending tracks on their newest album Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome a sublime, delicious treat. Many highlights include the beautifully arranged latin grooves of “We Did Not See The Light Of Day”, to the catchy, radio-friendly “Ugliest Bitterest Coldest Dreary Place I’ve Ever Seen”, followed by “Lonesome” another catchy melody featuring Petunia’s trademark yodeling. Slow, country ballads are also present including the mournful ruminating of “Heavy and Lonesome” and the tear-jerker “Blindly Wander”.
Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome is music for the adventure seeker, the wanderer, the broken-hearted, lovers and other strangers.
Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome
