Roselit Bone


A native of Southern California, Joshua McCaslin formed the band in Portland, Oregon, in 2013: first as a duo with drummer Ben Dahmes, then a trio, and eventually a nine-piece ensemble of flute, trumpets, pedal steel, accordion, violin and more. McCaslin himself is a triple threat: a versatile guitarist, a writer of vivid nightmare-poetry, and a singer unique in his ability to croon like Marty Robbins, bellow like Nick Cave, and scream, grunt and wail like a defiant, wounded animal. If 2014s self-released debut, "Blacken & Curl" set the tone, the June 2017 follow-up, "Blister Steel" refines and expands it. McCaslin's lyrics are crueler and darker, the arrangements bigger and more ambitious.
