“Silver City Bound has their own loose-limbed charm...serving up a
sprightly mixture of folk, country, mariachi, and more." - The New
“New York’s Silver City Bound play a fun, eclectic brand of Americana
that blends in folk, zydeco and a bit of indie rock.” – Pop Matters
"Love the whole spirit of it." -Bob Harris, BBC
Following the recent and heralded release of its EP ‘Take My Picture,’
which reached the top ten of Bandcamp’s Americana chart, Silver City
Bound will be traveling to Azerbaijan to do concerts and workshops on
behalf of the U.S. Department of State's Arts Envoy Program. While in
Azerbaijan, the band will collaborate with local musicians and perform
at high profile festival America Days.
On their way to Azerbaijan, the band will stop in Istanbul, Turkey to collaborate with Country For Syria May 14 and 15.
Based in Istanbul, Country For Syria is comprised of American, Turkish,
and Syrian musicians who play a mix of American and Arabic folk music
and do performances and collaborations with Syrian refugees all over
Turkey. Like Silver City Bound, an accordion is featured prominently in
The proceeds will go to Istanbul & I, an organization that is
focused on helping refugees in Istanbul from various countries build a
positive relationship with the city and sponsoring creative projects.
Silver City Bound's intent is both to raise money and awareness for the
Syrian refugee crisis as well as to show strength and solidarity with
other young artists living and working in Istanbul. Together, they will
celebrate the positive cultural power of music and hopefully plant the
seeds for further collaborative work. Silver City Bound's mission is to
promote cross-cultural collaboration and dialogue through American roots
A kick-off concert at Barbes in Brooklyn is planned at 9 pm on May 11, the site of the band’s overflowing EP release show. On May 5, a new music video for title track “Take My Picture” will be premiered.
