“Gummi Soul: Another Rubber” Album Release Show
The Beatles classic “Rubber Soul” reimagined.
Featuring special performance alongside The Movies , Stephen Sheehan and Kristen Buell
Twenty years burning down the road of original compositions, Omaha-based songwriter Matt Whipkey turns his eye to one of his all-time influences : The Beatles. Previously presenting a version of the fabs’ classic “Drive My Car” on his 2018 album “Driver”, Whipkey’s come full circle: reimagining and interpreting The Beatles entire 1965 landmark, “Rubber Soul”.
“Gummi Soul: Another Rubber” is the culmination of one of the most inspired years of Whipkey’s restless musical journey. With The Beatles as his muse and “Rubber Soul” as his map, Whipkey plows fertile new musical ground with more than just a little help from his friends. At times enlisting the melodic bombast of his classic early aughts quartet, The Movies, Whipkey hands over lead vocal duties on several numbers to both veteran Omaha vocalist Stephen Sheehan (Digital Sex) and a revelatory newcomer in Kristen Buell.
Not limited to landlocked Omaha, “Gummi Soul: Another Rubber” proudly features the mixing work and co-production (“Michelle”) of legendary European-based, Grammy award- winning producer Stephen Hague (Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Peter Gabriel) Throughout “Gummi Soul…” Ian Aeillo and J. Scott Gaeta also assist Whipkey in this reimagined production of the gospel according to John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Covering all US and UK “Rubber Soul” album tracks along with the singles , “Gummi Soul : Another Rubber” reveals the Shakespearean nature of The Beatles songcraft. Able to withstand at times radical reworkings with melodic integrity seemingly intact: The Beatles always shine through.
Alongside his signature American folk rock, Whipkey ventures into the previously unexplored waters of electronic production (Girl, I’ve Just Seen a Face, We Can Work It Out) even embracing elements of baroque and French pop (Michelle). Across the 19 tracks, Whipkey’s fearlessness in the shadows of our Liverpool heroes is equal parts irreverence and honor.
Joining Whipkey on the Jewell stage for this long in the works release celebration is his most all-star iteration to date. Do not miss your chance to catch a truly memorable evening of music presented by Matt Whipkey featuring the actual recording cast of “Gummi Soul: Another Rubber”.
