Funeral Bonsai Wedding now available

“One of the most underrated songwriters in American music, Chicago-native Steve Dawson has been helming influential rock band Dolly Varden since the early ’90s, producing humane and hooky solo records, collaborating with his wife Diane Christiansen and digging into soul on side projects. His newest venture is Funeral Bonsai Wedding, a jazz-folk collaboration that flashes with the vibraphone of Jason Adasiewicz on impressionistic but memorable arrangements that recall the best of Tim Buckley or Astral Weeks-era Van Morrison. Those may seem like lofty notices, but Dawson has a way with melody and image that live up to them.”   – St. Louis Riverfront Times Steve Dawson with Jason Adasiewicz – vibraphone Jason Roebe – upright bass Frank Rosaly – drums available on LP/CD from the official online store Available from these fine retailers!
