Neulore was formed in Nashville, TN in the Autumn of 2009 to tell stories of hope. After releasing a well-crafted EP, “Apples & Eve”, they have begun to take their heartfelt songs to the masses. With a live show that not only entertains, but affects, leaving the audience with a sense that anything is possible, Neulore is captivating the hearts of all who draw near. Describing their sound as “truth in modern tones” and boldly stating that “the new folk music has arrived” they are firmly rooted in the tradition of community, the pursuit of wisdom, and the telling of timeless stories from a fresh perspective.
We caught up with the band before their show this Wednesday at Eddie’s Attic!
What is the strangest thing a fan has done for you or at your show?
Nothing too ironic, it’s usually snacks or artwork. Sometimes the drawings can get a little sketchy though (pun intended)…
Do you have any pre-show rituals?
Usually a prayer and a pow wow gets us ready.
If you could describe your music in one word, what would it be?
How do you connect with a crowd?
We are always trying to hone the craft of storytelling. Overall we want our shows to be an experience, and for the listener to feel safe enough to express themselves throughout the show.
How did you decide on your band name?
We were going through old literature and we really loved the meaning and thought behind the word “Folklore”, but we wanted a fresh twist on it. We ended up with NEULORE, defining as “the beginning of a tradition” or “a new story”.
What is the best way to write music?
In a safe environment where you can express yourself. Usually low lights, incense, and an adult beverage helps too.
Catch Neulore at Eddie’s Attic on Wednesday, March 27th!
