5 Cent Coffee is an eclectic trio dedicated to organic old fashioned sound; an amalgamation of a by-gone nation, mixed with the fresh scent of a smile or the wail of a lament.
Ukulele driven original material with stand up bass and melodeon - throw in a washboard, a kazoo - some junk, an old shoe, wear a grumpy hat, cry a tear or two, and you’re there by the side of an old dusty highway...
We are NEo-Skiffle Junkyard Blues, with howling vocals; sometimes a sad accordion wails, sometimes your toe taps to a twang. Moody and candy-like, we write songs that cast you back into another time. We are inspired by sounds as diverse as the clang and thump of old jug and skiffle bands and early 20th century American music to Kurt Weill and Lottie Lenya to Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and the Tiger lillies.
