NEW DOLLY VARDEN ALBUM IN THE WORKS
I’m pleased to report that we’ve had two very productive all-day recording sessions and we already have the bulk of 6 songs tracked. We’re recording at my home studio, Kernel Sound Emporium. I’d say we’re looking at an early 2018 release at this point. That could change as we move along. I’ll keep you all posted!
RESIDENCY AT THE HIDEOUT IN SEPTEMBER
I’m VERY excited to announce that I’ll be doing a residency at the Hideout in Chicago in September. Here’s the info so far:
Monday, 9/4: Dolly Varden plays “The Panic Bell”
We’ll play the full album to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary, then we’ll play a bunch of the new songs we’re working on for our next album
Monday, 9/11: The Take It To The Bridge All Star Bridge-Tacular! Some of Chicago’s best singers will perform their favorite songs with great bridges, at this celebration for Steve and Mark Caro’s songwriting book. Slated to perform are: Kelly Hogan, Gerald Dowd, Casey McDonough, Nora O’Connor, Rachel Drew and more, this could change due to various touring schedules, etc.
Monday, 9/25: Funeral Bonsai Wedding with Strings
Myself, Jason Adasiewicz, Jason Roebke and Gerald Dowd will be joined by the amazing Quartet Parapulie in this one of a kind concert. We’ll do songs from the FBW debut album, and a bunch of new songs as we prepare to make a new album.
