knifeyAdam Depre’s songwriting is a return to a pure, simplified sound — old-fashioned, hard-luck country songs that serve as a tribute to the no-bullshit, blue-collar Duluth neighborhood bars he favors. These days Old Knifey is a solo performer, but many of his songs are from his days with the Cutthroats, the band he released The Friendly West End EP with in 2012. His new sound is a back-to-basics, stripped-down re-envisioning of the sad-bastard tales he’s been conceiving on West Duluth barstools for years.
