Palace In-depth Biography

Will Oldham}, the brains and brawn behind releases as Palace Brothers}, Palace Songs}, Palace Music}, and just plain Palace}, is loosely grouped with the '90s anti-folk} movement that also includes Bill Callahan} of Smog}, a labelmate of Oldham}'s on Chicago's Drag City Records}. Often mistaken for an old man due to his cracking vocals, sparse guitar pickings, and biblical dialect, Oldham} has recorded since 1992 with a variety of sidemen -- basically, any friends or acquaintances that can play an instrument.

Raised in Louisville, KY, Oldham} first became involved in acting; he starred in John Sayles}' 1987 mining film Matewan}, playing -- with considerable ease -- a teenage preacher and miner. Two years later, he moved to TV for Everybody's Baby: The Rescue of Jessica McClure} and returned to the cinema in 1991 for Thousand Pieces of Gold}, another mining film. At the same time, Oldham} was also involved in the fertile indie rock} scene in Louisville, picking up his first technical credit for the photograph on the cover of Slint}'s 1991 classic, Spiderland}.

Oldham} the musical artist debuted in 1992 with the single "Ohio River Boat Song"} on Drag City Records}. Though he was credited as Palace Songs} on the single, Oldham}'s debut album the following year was filed under Palace Brothers} -- in part to denote the work of Todd Brashear}. There Is No-One What Will Take Care of You} introduced several of Oldham}'s continuing themes: drunkenness, sin in general, and the varied results of each.

Recording regularly during 1993-1994, Oldham} released several singles and an EP (An Arrow Through the Bitch}) before his second album -- self-titled but also listed as Days in the Wake} -- was issued by Drag City} in 1994. Again, Oldham} followed with a string of limited-release singles and one EP, but mixed things up for late-1995's Viva Last Blues} (as Palace Music}); Oldham} recruited a band, with guitarist Bryan Rich}, organist Liam Hayes}, and bassist Jason Loewenstein} (from Sebadoh}). The following year's Arise, Therefore} found Oldham} back in a largely solitary setting. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
