Durham County Poets / Press

“This group plays bluesy country/folk with a lot of verve. The lead singer sits in his wheelchair and just kills every vocal. The recording on “River” has mostly an ambient sound with very little reverb. It gives the listener a sense of sitting in a living room somewhere, listening to the band crank out one great tune after another. ~Acoustic Live in New York City, album review”

“Our new CD Chikkaboodah Stew has been nominated in Qc for a Lys en Blues Award.”

“FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 JD SLIM - THE BLUES NET Poets Durham designed just tinged with a first album of soundscapes folk-rock and bluesy. The thirteen original songs are carried by Dave Whyte and Neil Elsmore on guitars, Carl Rufh bass, percussion and Jim Preimel Kevin Harvey that holds all with his melodic voice that reminds a little stamp Jesse Winchester and Ray Bonneville . Also, all participating in vocal harmonies well felt that add a nice touch to this production. A relaxed atmosphere emerges from this disc, certainly recorded in a climate of collaboration and complicity. Durham County Poets are told through the music called "roots" of "Americana" that can not be denied that remains universal and timeless. "Where The River Flows," "Freedom Shore," "The Moon Will not Go Down", "The Devil You Know" and "Chasing a Feeling" are like parts of the same house, but each with a decor and a folk atmosphere, blues or jazz in a corner now with a trombone, saxophone, electric guitar”

“Carl Rufh,fellow band member to Jim Preimel came to the defense of Jim after the incident on Rodeo drive last week when this reporter was assaulted. Carl pleaded insanity on behalf of Jim the drummer man, stating that," It was the heat of Los Angeles paired with sleep deprivation that caused the drummer to fly of the handle like that."The Judge let Jim off with a $500.00 fine and two weeks of community service and was ordered to take Anger Management courses.”

“Jim Preimel of the DC Poets was spotted last Friday night on Rodao Drive in Beverly Hills shopping for Gucci drum sticks and a hand made cowbell worn by the original "Daisy" Jersey cow. When pressed by this reporter to explain, why the extravagance. The Percussionist of the Durham County Poets head butted me in the face and uttered profanities.”

“The sound of Durham County Poets, is New and Fresh yet Old and Classic at the same time, it's like an old comfortable pair of shoes swimming in febreeze.”
