Short Bio

Gleewood is a New Mexican husband/wife fronted Americana/folk rock band that grooves through blues, folk, and rock 'n' roll. Jhett and Callie Sioux's lyrics lend a story to folk and roots music enthusiasts and bring an energy that swells into dynamic jams pumped from the heart of the psychedelic 60s. Though both fourth generation New Mexican, it was after Jhett Schiavone began his acoustic songwriting in Hawaii that he met, married, and began writing with western desert flower, Callie Sioux.

Gleewood has averaged more than 200 shows per year since their first album release in November 2013 and has opened for number of acts including, Southern Rock legends: The Marshall Tucker Band and today's Psychedelic Rock authorities: Radio Moscow. While their new album, "Sweet, Sweet Time," makes obvious nostalgic nods to vintage folk rock bands like The Animals, Buffalo Springfield, and Lindisfarne, it courteously dismisses boundaries with dynamic and progressive songwriting. Garbed in silver, turquoise, and denim, Gleewood leads with vocal ingenuity and an uplifting stage presence to bring a southwestern patina to the good, the bad, and the blues. Gleewood’s latest work was released in by M & O Music (FR) in Europe September 2018 which includes a "Sweet, Sweet Time" Deluxe addition.

What other people are saying

Alibi Weekly - Albuquerque, NM

June 27th, 2019

“Their new record dropped on June 12. It’s a single titled “Superstition” and tours the sharp edges of mental illness and addiction with a deft directness and dusky melodics.

Inflected by the literature of the southlands—you know like Faulkner and Oates—and informed by the hot as hell guitar cult that emanates outta Tejas and has, over the years, infected much of the rocanrol being made from New Mexico to Califas with its slithery ways. Gleewood is the sort of band that makes songs out of a mixture of dreams seen through an old teevee, a cunningly deployed distortion pedal and gravel from the rough road forward. Jhett’s haunting baritone adds another level of mystery while yielding fantastic harmonies with his mezzo wife and partner.”

A une semaine de la sortie du nouvel album de Gleewood, intitulé "Sweet, Sweet Time" (28 septembre 2018, M&O Music), United Rock Nations vous propose de découvrir en avant-première le titre 'Shades'.

Gleewood est un groupe Americana Rock dirigé par des époux et des femmes qui sillonnent le blues, le folk et le rock'n'roll. Les paroles de Jhett et Callie Sioux prêtent une histoire aux amateurs de musique roots tout en apportant une énergie qui se gonfle dans des jams dynamiques pompés du coeur des soixante psychédéliques. Bien que tous deux du Nouveau-Mexique, c'est après que Jhett a commencé son écriture à Hawaii qu'il a rencontré, s'est marié et a commencé à écrire avec la fleur du désert occidental, Callie Sioux. Le groupe a maintenu en moyenne plus de 200 concerts par an depuis 2013.

Sweet, Sweet Time , nouvel opus de GLEEWOOD est une véritable invitation au voyage, pour traverser le grand ouest américain, au son d’une musique plongeant ses racines dans un terreau folk teinté de rock et fondamentalement Americana.
Jhett et Callie Sioux nous emmènent sur la route, de celle qu’ils ne quittent que très rarement, jalonnée de ces 200 concerts annuels, au son de deux voix complémentaires et apaisantes. 
Callie Sioux donne la réplique à la voix de barbiton de Jhett Schiavone sur fond de musique parfois acoustique, et à d’autres moments électrique, mais toujours résolument et puissamment Roots.

Disponible depuis 2016 aux Etats-Unis, " Sweet, Sweet Time " profite de sa sortie européenne via M & O Music pour se voir gratifier de 2 titres supplémentaires en fin d'album. Mais avant d'en arriver là, découvrons déjà ce que GLEEWOOD nous réserve.
Après une brève introduction, " Tick Tock ", on découvre un univers n'hésitant pas à mêler la facette parfois calme et surtout mélancolique que la folk peut laisser songer, à un rock hyper puissant. On retrouve ainsi une grande quantité de morceaux mêlant les 2 d'une manière pas si courante, tant les 2 mondes s'étirent, pour mieux se rassembler.

“Gleewood is a folk, blues and rock'n roll group with a good taste of vintage. 
The lyrics of Jhett and Callie Sioux appeal to fans of folk and roots music everywhere. The group has an ascending but also dynamic energy pumped into the heart of the psychedelic 60s. Gleewood has played more than 200 shows a year since the release of their first album in November 2013 and now here is their new album, "Sweet, Sweet Time.” The album is tinged with a nostalgic nod to vintage rock bands such as The Animals, Buffalo Springfield and Lindisfarne. 

The album exudes a magical atmosphere; it is very captivating. The opening, "Tick Tock," contains a very soft guitar which leads to a groove that Gleewood knows how to perfectly manage.”

"Thousands of kilometers and nearly a thousand concerts later, Jhett and Callie Sioux finally come out of their tourbus and back into the studio to file the second full album of "Gleewood." Their acoustic roots have been electrified and reassembled through hot tubes to produce their most diversified and dynamic release possible. Gleewood discovers themself in acoustic folk music as progressive folk rock firmly established in today's Americana music scene. Jhett Schiavone's sturdy and powerful bass-baritone voice mingles with Callie Sioux's clear high soprano to deliver timeless sound through the vintage canvas of their instrumentation."

against the silence - M&O music

“A lot of people don’t seem to realise that every sort of creation isn’t separated from its creator, at least to the degree that one wants to comprehend and analyse its code and it’s the critic’s job to bring out this hidden connection. In a time that style seems to be the only thing that matters and the creator’s background is of low importance, it is an artist’s key strength to carry a personal story, imprinting it to the creation. In this case, if I was to present Gleewood as a blues/rock/folk act, I would only reveal one small fragment of the truth, but if I give you some details about the way they choose to live, you may realise new depths and dimensions of their music. So this is actually the presentation of a big journey.

After some time in Hawaii, Jhett and Callie Sioux Chiavone met each other, fell in love and got married back in their home, New Mexico, US. With her playing the bass, him playing the guitar and both of them having beautiful voices, they started composing their songs with their minds and fingers focused on their country’s wide musical tradition: folk, blues, country, rock n roll, the psychedelic ’60s, progressive rock. And then, instead of choosing to settle down and live a typical life, they decided to embark on a journey without any obvious destination, carrying only their instruments on their backs. For a while now, they have been travelling from country to country playing their music wherever there are people willing to listen. No matter if it is on the streets, at squares, basements, bars or venues, they play their music as they go on living their lives of no concrete tomorrows. So, this is how I met them myself, while they were travelling through our small city, here in Western Europe. I’ve seen them many times playing on the streets under the sun or under the rain and their bluesy tales always sounded reckless and happy. This is the quintessence of Sweet, sweet time: it is a fingerprint, a Polaroid, a true diary of two loving humans that are always ready to speak about the hot sun and the beautiful mountains of their home, about good people, God and great music.”

"Their version of “The House of the Rising Sun” was eerie. A Gleewood original, “Whiskey Sue” was a ballad where Jhett and Callie switched vocal leads, taking on the parts of the man and woman in the song. It was a nice bit of theater. Another moment of theater happened when everyone in the band took off their hats and headbanged. Callie even stepped up on the drum platform so she could rock out. Since there’s a lot of long manes on the guys and shorter moptops on the ladies, this was quite a show. Though Gleewood rocks hard, it does a lot of story songs that speak of life and living and hope. If you can get a chance to see these guys live, please do."

Album Review
Band: Gleewood
Album: Sweet, Sweet Time
Compares to: Steppenwolf, The White Stripes, The Mamas & The Papas, Nancy Sinatra

Ruidoso New Mexico husband and wife duo, Gleewood has released their full length album Sweet, Sweet Time. I threw this album on while on a drive up I-15 through the middle of Utah. I found myself instantly rocking out and reaching for my notepad. I knew I was going to have to write a review.

This album exhibits mastery! The band flows seamlessly from psychedelic rock with blues elements to folk rock. While the album captures Gleewood in all their live glory it also has those beautiful touches of time well spend in the studio. The details were not neglected. This album is a community effort, it was recorded by Klas Ahman & Richard Cagle and mixed and mastered by Rick Parker. It features many musicians from the broad scope of Gleewood's travels including Donny Marling and Josh Landry on percussion, Corina Meeks on fiddle, Robin Scott and Walt Evans on guitar and myself, Tom Bennett on harmonica.

The album begins with "Tick Tock" a little instrumental ditty that warms up your ears for the journey you're about to take. Title track "Sweet, Sweet Time" starts off the album with some of that Southern swagger that Gleewood has picked up touring the South. It is a 60's style, sun soaked groove. "Shades" is a rowdy and rough track. It's a little witchy!

Gleewood standard "Whiskey Sue" is quite the engaging tale.The story of Jhett's (vocals, guitar, Irish bouzouki) Great Grandpa who was a moonshine runner. I have heard the song many times live, but this album version is flawless. The guitar tones are rich and haunting. My favorite part of the song is where Callie Sioux's (bass, vocals, harmonica) voice rises into a lofty crescendo as Jhett's guitar soars to meet it. The whole song then dives into a foggy, spooky tripped out breakdown.

Whiskey Sue marks a transition, as the album moves into more folk rock territory. A couple of classic cover songs appear including "House Of The Rising Sun" and "Summer Wine."

I visited Gleewood in Ruidoso last summer and was lucky enough to employ my harmonica on the song "Of Mountains and Friends" I was floored to hear the way it came together. It's a very lively song that well matches it name. Joyful, is the main word that comes to mind.

"A Fall Ballad" the second from the last song showcases Gleewood's ability to slow things down and share beautiful life lessons. The song address mortality in a beautiful conversation between a young boy and an old man who are watching fall leaves. It's delivered in perfect Gleewood style as the band are devout Christians, however, the kind who are more given to living their faith that preaching it.

The album closes with "Runnin' From The Man" 
This song features Gleewood as the great duo they are. Jhett & Callie Sioux thrive with a full band, but they really rock as a two piece as well. I was happy to see them show that here. 
The song ends with an amazing vocal harmony that really demonstrates that Callie Sioux has found her voice. I can't say I've ever heard an album end better. I listened to this album start to finish 3 times the first two days I had it and I can't wait to make it the soundtrack of my summer travels.

"Hailing all the way from Ruidoso NM, one of today’s finest hard-working Americana Folk-Rock Husband/Wife Duos you will ever meet, returns with their brilliant new album “Sweet, Sweet Time”.

Who are they? They are Gleewood, and that’s a name you can count on seeing around for ages to come. They are pleasantly-dangerous and will consume you with their rhythm and grooves like a Ruidoso Fire while you desperately gasp your last breath of the mainstream world and into the Heavens of Indie music.

“Sweet, Sweet Time” is definitely an album to be experienced live, you will be forever blessed to have met both Callie and Jhett in person, whether it be between sets or having a few laughs and drinks after a show. Armed with a set consisting of two albums worth of songs, traditionals, covers, and many hearty tour-stories from the road, they will take you into their wonderful home on stage for three hours and you will have one of the best experiences you’ve ever had in your life for several lifetimes to come."
