7Horse is what happens when you dump accelerant on the smoldering embers of creativity.
The fresh avenue for rock veterans Joie Calio and Phil Leavitt of dada, 7Horse’s music burns where cosmic country meets dirty blues, where primal urges unfold into bawdy nights, and where two friends — and longtime bandmates — discover radically new sides of each other. All that, and maybe a bucketful of booze and a few bottles of pills, are embodied on the duo’s debut album “Let the 7Horse Run.”
“This is all about riff and groove,” Leavitt says of the duo’s quest to tap into the roots of rock ’n’ roll’s rich past. “It’s about laying something down that’s so good you want to hear it forever.”
