Layton Weedeman (drums) and Omer Leibovitz (guitar) aka The Courtesy Tier have been playing together for the last seven years, but they weren’t always a duo. As members came and went, they perpetually conceptualized themselves as a four and sometimes six piece band. Then, during their second winter in New York, the boys had run out of other band members. Regrouping in a closet size practice space under the Smith Street overpass, they finally had enough room to rehearse, and they liked the sound, and I do too.
Gutsy, rockin' blues with a big thick sound that will have you doubting there are only two of them.
For a limited time get an exclusive free download (but hey kick in a dolla if ya got it.) of the brand new single "Something Better" from their upcoming, no confirmation yet next release. New Yorker's you can catch them January 3rd for their only show until Spring 2013 at Glasslands Gallery
They were participant's last year at Couch By Couchwest and will hopefully return again this year. Check that out here.
Check out this Martin Guitar "At The Space" series, a stripped down version of their song "Fall Asleep" using a Martin D-15M at a Williamsburg practice space.
