Cold Satellite is a rock 'n' roll band, steeped (as rock 'n' roll should be) in country and blues. But most importantly, the music shoots up from the inspired partnership of frontman Jeffrey Foucault and poet Lisa Olstein. The song how to write a personal essay "Sleepers Wake," from the group's second album, tracks a wide orbit of sound and meaning.
Part John Prine, part Dylan, part lonely cowboy swilling whiskey out on a moonlit prairie, Jeffrey Foucault has a chameleonic sound. This quality enhances the troubadour's grace and emboldens the emotional power of the music.
