Sometimes, a song can serve as the moral compass for a journey within one's self. That's what the music of Sugarplum Fairies, the brainchild of Los Angeles-based, Vienna-bred singer/songwriter Silvia Ryder explores. Her sad songs are masked behind delicate instrumentation and luscious melodies that make you feel bad about feeling good. We're excited to premiere her cover of "Blues Run the Day" that features Charlie Clark.
"Blues Run the Game" is a cover by the late 60's folk artist, Jackson C. Frank," Ryder explains. "He only recorded one album - and died in obscurity and homeless. The song was originally tracked in London in 1965, and produced by his fellow American ex-pat Paul Simon. Dubbed 'the opposite of the loud American,' Frank's tale is the most tragic and the least known amongst contemporaries of the '60s and '70s folk scene."
