Where Am I Going To Sleep? - Single
Oxford Blue is spearheaded by singer/songwriter Patrick Lefler, and he is transparent on the key influence on his sound, early '70s country icon Gram Parsons. Of his speedily-written new single "Where Am I Going To Sleep", he says "I had been listening to what some would say was too much Gram Parsons and I wrote the song in a pencil crayon because it was the first thing I could get my hands on." The result is a real strong retro country tune Parsons would have been proud to claim. Daniel Romano would be a current reference point, and in fact Romano and lap steel ace Aaron Goldstein produced Oxford Blue's eponymous 2013 debut album. A six-song mini-album, Another Blue Morning, is set for release on Oct. 9.
Oxford Blue are currently playing dates in the Maritimes and Montreal, and they have an album release show set for Junction City Music Hall in Toronto on Oct. 9, alongside New Country Rehab. Check their facebook for details.
