Singer songwriter Beau Roberson is a rapidly rising star in Tulsa. He leads the band Pilgrim whos music is an eclectic Tulsa appropriate mix of classic sounds. You have your rock, your funk, your blues and your country. The resulting sound is wholly original but if comparisons must be made some would say Pilgrim at times reminds them of J.J. Cale, Wilco, John Prine, and even Widespread Panic. The lyrical phrasing often reminds one of Jeff Tweedy’s way with words and at times softer delivery. However, the deep growls or bellows might remind one of WSP’s John Bell. Also like these bands the full Pilgrim sound is lush and organic with bass and organ grooves laying the groundwork with tasty fluid guitar runs over the top of it all.
Pilgrim plays at Mercury Lounge on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m., no cover. If there is a ticketed show booked, Beau will play afterward to close out the night. Please check the website for details.
