In his latest project, Adam Perry, who has bashed the skins for several local outfits, including the Yawpers and Gasoline Lollipops, combines the well-appreciated work of grunge godfather and folk-rock icon Neil Young with that of mythical tunesmith Bob Dylan. The group’s name, Rolling Harvest, is a nod to Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue tour of mid-1970s renown and Young’s classic 1972 LP, Harvest. The result of Perry’s vision is a talented ensemble of local musicians with a series of shows booked around the Front Range this summer and fall.
“I wanted to make music and not go on the road, and I’d met some younger people who really inspired me,” the 41-year-old touring veteran relates. “Alexandra Schwan [a former member of the Sweet Lillies] had toured in the Gas Pops with me, and I always wanted to see her be out front in a band. She has a great voice and stage presence. Our other co-frontperson is Hunter Stone, who is a songwriter and a multi-talented musician. He’s amazing. He showed up to a rehearsal and…immediately demonstrated how to play an excellent version of the tune ‘Southern Man.’ That’s exactly what I wanted — to be able to dive right into the material. Jason [Bertone, also a member of the band Banshee Tree] is one of our two bass players, including Cole Sexton, that we have for this project. I also knew [Jason] from the Pops, and same for our keyboard player, Scott [Coulter]. It’s really nice to have all these different voices and skill sets in the band.”
Perry, who has a day job in the legal profession when he’s not parenting at home, says there are eight musicians involved with the project, though there are “never more than seven on stage.” He says he chose the music of Dylan and Young because of the depth and range of their famous catalogues.
