    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    The Young Dubliners with Opening Act TBA

    After thirty years as one of the world’s leading Celtic Rock bands, The Young Dubliners have begun work on their tenth studio album while still maintaining their busy tour schedule.


    Having survived the crushing impact of the lockdown on their industry they have returned stronger than ever and determined to bring their fusion of Celtic and rock music to as many people as they can.


    The band is Keith Roberts (vocals / guitar), Chas Waltz (Violin, keys, vocals), Justin Pecot (guitar, vocals), Dave Ingraham (drums) and Ethan Jones (bass guitar)


    With a solid line up, a new batch of songs and the help of their new agency, Skyline, The YD are excited to bring live music back into festivals, theaters and clubs around the world.


    “We want to be the band who reminds the world how important a good gig can be to our sanity after what we’ve all been through” says Roberts.


    For only the second time the band is looking to its fans to finance the album instead of a traditional record company. “The business has changed so much over our lifetime that it no longer makes sense for us to take money from a label and then owe it all back” adds Roberts. “Making all our supporters co producers is a far more rewarding way to make a record and allows us to maintain control all the way”.  The band have teamed up with long time producer, Irish born Tim Boland, and will begin recording in the coming months.


    The Young Dubliners have released nine albums to date. The set on the upcoming dates will draw from all their albums and include unreleased new material.


    In recent years the Young Dubs have appeared twice on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang, Los Lobos, Chris Isaak and many more.


    Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called ‘Celtic Rock’, that label can often be misleading. The Irish influence is certainly there, but it’s not the only influence that bursts through on their albums or live shows. After all, several of the band members have no Irish roots of any kind. “That was always the idea”, explains Roberts “The sound was intended to be a hybrid because we all come from different backgrounds. Even though I am from Ireland, a lot of the music I listened to growing up wasn’t Irish at all, but when I got here, I got homesick and developed a new appreciation for Irish Music. In truth the Celtic riffs can just as easily come from the American band members. Everyone writes now so you never know what you’ll end up with”


    “Their sound defies categorization. The Young Dubliners can be seen as Ireland's answer to Los Lobos, with a similar combination of traditional folk music, raucous electric rock, and forward-thinking experimentation.”

    Performing together as one band

    Dawes
    We wanted a musical drama.
    An ensemble cast, with linked arms, kicking highly.

    A transcription of a band meeting we haven’t even had yet…

    A spotlight on a spotlight:
    This one goes out to all the solos BETWEEN the solos.
    To the Ands of 3… AND 4.

    8 Legs and 8 arms, in a room, stretching deeper than they ever knew they could.
    The Intros have Outros.
    The Outros have Bridges.

    Don’t like the Jam? ……. Just wait five minutes.

    Like turtle doves in a snow storm, Fate has brought us together again with Producer and long time collaborator Jonathon Wilson. And for this, we are forever grateful.

    our 8th studio record to date. Unless you don’t count the first seven, then this would be our DEBUT RECORD!

    We left quite a mess out there, and if each person reading this picks up just one piece of trash on their way out…

    Then we’ll leave this planet more beautiful than the day we found it

    Lucius
     

    Formed by lead vocalists and songwriters Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, acclaimed indie band Lucius is best known for their sinuous harmonies and highly-original, pop-noir musical artistry. The group, which includes multi-instrumentalists Peter Lalish and Dan Molad, have released three albums, and toured the globe, cultivating a passionate following for their ingenious art-pop creations and exhilarating live performances. The gifted melodicists and songwriters bring a startling level of musicianship to Lucius — which is evident in the astounding talent they’ve collaborated with over the course of their prolific 16-year career.

    Released in 2013, Wildewoman, Lucius’ debut album, featured the enduring single “Two of Us on the Run” and set off a wave of critical acclaim including Rolling Stone, who called the album’s updated 60’s girl group sounds “fresh and thrilling.” On their second album, 2016’s Good Grief, the Los Angeles-based group mined their influences to create an album NPR called, “Rapturous,” and expanded their quickly growing fan-base even wider. 2022’s 80’s dance-inflected LP Second Nature, produced by Brandi Carlile and Dave Cobb, included “Next to Normal,” one of NPR Music’s top songs of the year, and the sparkling disco-gemmed “Dance
    Around It,” featuring Carlile and Sheryl Crow.

    In addition to their work with Lucius, the GRAMMY-nominated Wolfe and Laessig are among the most sought-after vocalists in popular music. The pair are members of Joni Mitchell’s famed “Joni Jam” crew and have graced songs by dozens of contemporary and legendary artists alike including: Carlile, The War on Drugs, John Legend, The Killers, Harry Styles, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Black Pumas, Jeff Tweedy, and Ozzy Osbourne, just to name a few.
     
    In 2023, Lucius signed with Fantasy Records and will release their fourth full-length album in 2024.

    An Evening with moe.

    Al Schnier (guitars, vocals) * Chuck Garvey (guitars, vocals) * Rob Derhak (bass, vocals) * Jim Loughlin (percussion, vibes) * Vinnie Amico (drums)

    Hailed by American Songwriter for their "mind-bending musicality," moe. is treasured for their mesmerizing musical synergy, unfettered showmanship, and smart, resonant songcraft. For three decades, the band has corralled myriad musical forms on a truly original journey rich with crafty, clever songwriting and astonishing resourcefulness. Fueled by an impassioned fan base, moe. has spent much of those thirty years on the road, encompassing countless live performances marked by eclectic wit, deep friendship, and exploratory invention. Having built an enduring legacy with hard work and a confirmed commitment to creativity and community, moe. seem as surprised as anyone to find themselves at such a significant landmark.

    That illustrious career path has been supported and nourished by the band's ever-growing legion of devoted fans and followers, known lovingly as moe.rons. With their astonishing prolificacy and awe-inspiring longevity, moe. is among the rare bands that somehow manage to transcend time and trend to be passed down from one generation to the next. 

    "We've never been the kind of band where you're one-and-done," Amico says. "People have gotten married and had kids, now those kids are listening to us."

    "There are people who have been with us right from the beginning in Buffalo," Derhak says. "Which is insane. But the thing is, we pick up people along the road. There are people who say, I've resisted listening to this band for years and then I finally did -- I can't believe I've wasted my time not listening to them for so long. Now they're like, I need more albums, I need more shows."

    Impossible to pigeonhole as anything other than simply moe., this one-of-a-kind band has never been easily categorized, their sonic adventurousness and tongue-in-cheek humor distinctly and undeniably their own. Despite current circumstances, moe. is celebrating their milestone anniversary with characteristic self-deprecation and wistful optimism. Here's to the next thirty.

    "Thirty years is a long run," Derhak says, "to be with the same guys. I haven't even been married for thirty years. "
     
    "You just don't think about thirty years down the line when you're starting out," Amico says. "I mean, you kind of do because that's what you want to be doing for the rest of your life. Here we are, thirty years later -- I've had this job longer than I probably would've had any job in the real world."

    Paul Hoffman (phoffman) is a singer, songwriter and the mandolin player of the critically acclaimed and internationally touring Americana/Rock band Greensky Bluegrass. Raised in Muskegon, MI, he immersed himself in community theatre, numerous school choirs and productions, and classic rock fueled boat shed jams. A collegiate endeavor in English Literature lead to Kalamazoo, MI which catalyzed the formation and became the home base for Greensky. From humble beginnings, the band quickly became a festival favorite, having performed at such iconic events as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Festival, Stagecoach, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and countless others in addition to headlining sold out performances at revered venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheater, Ryman Auditorium, and The Chicago Theatre. "Greensky are hardly strictly bluegrass and, yet, representing the genre for a whole new generation," claimed Rolling Stone in 2010. Recorded works have landed on several Billboard charts including #1 placement on the Bluegrass charts.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    Patti Fiasco and Mama Lenny & the Remedy Lovefest

    Jet-fueled by powerhouse front woman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco rides the edge of emotional extreme, delivering a brash yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. It’s the attitude of Joan Jett with a Steve Earle twang, the soul and slide of Bonnie Raitt, Black-Keys-style dirty blues-rock, and the lyric edginess of Shovels and Rope.
     
    Conceived at a Wyoming open mic in 2009, The Patti Fiasco quickly earned wide critical acclaim, a devout fan base spanning the West and Midwest, and radio play across the nation. The band has shared the stage with legends Bon Jovi and Blondie, renowned acts Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Justin Townes Earle, Great American Taxi, Cracker, Greensky Bluegrass, The Futurebirds, Born in the Flood, and Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real.
     


    Reinvigorated by a new rhythm section and a "best yet" collection of new songs, The Patti Fiasco is set to release their first new music since 2016 beginning in Spring of 2024. Their 2016 release, "Saved By Rock and Roll" was SCENE MAGAZINE'S Album of the Year.  Their 2013 release, “Small Town Lights,” has garnered multiple accolades, including Wyoming Public Radio's Best Regional Album award, FoCoMA’s Best Album award, and high positioning on the Colorado charts. It finished in the top 10 most-played Colorado records of 2013. The single of the same name received national radio play and was featured in the film “Whensday.” “Nobody’s Girl,” from the band’s self-titled 2011 debut, was that year’s top-spun single in Colorado. 


    Mama Lenny & the Remedy


    Mama Lenny and the Remedy recalls the tradition of the sexy, soulful songbird backed by a band that looks as good as it sounds. Fronted by the startling vocal and emotional power of Laniece Schleicher, they deliver a high-energy fusion of soul, funk, rock, blues, and disco with hints of jazz, gospel, and Broadway. With infectious energy, the band delves into the joys and downfalls of love and life, and the sensual pleasures and saucy self-possession that sustain us through it−always with a wink of humor and a witty turn of phrase.


    The band combines driving rhythms, astute instrumentation, and compelling harmonies into what Scene Magazine calls “unstoppable collaborative chemistry.” It is composed of some of Northern Colorado’s musical all-stars; Crip Erickson (drums); Ben Prytherch (bass); Greta Cornett (trumpet);  Annie West (saxophone/backing vocals); Kenneth Monks (guitar);  and Kelly Keeler (backing vocals).

    Since their start in 2011, Mama Lenny and the Remedy has opened for internationally renowned acts Alison Kraus and the Union Station, The California Honeydrops, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, and the English Beat, and are widely recognized as one of Colorado’s breakout bands. Download their latest release, “Rain Fire,” on Bandcamp.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    Lucero with Opening Act Jon Snodgrass

    Lucero has long been admired in their hometown of Memphis, where they have hosted “The Lucero Family Block Party” every spring for a number of years. At the 2018 Block Party they celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band, with the city’s Mayor Jim Strickland officially declaring it “Lucero Day.”

    The group found their name in a Spanish/English dictionary. “Lucero” is variously translated as “bright star” or “morning star.” None of them can speak Spanish.


    It’s been two decades since original members Ben Nichols, Brian Venable, Roy Berry, and John C. Stubblefield (keyboardist Rick Steff joined in 2006) started playing shows in Memphis. The band’s first show was April 13, 1998 at a warehouse space across the street from what is now the National Civil Rights Museum, the infamous Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot. Their first set was six songs played to about six people. On August 3, 2018, record release day for Among the Ghosts, the band will be co-headlining Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.


    The band’s ninth studio album, Among the Ghosts, is their first for noted Nashville indie label Thirty Tigers. It was recorded and co-produced with Grammy-winning engineer/producer and Memphis native Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Drive by Truckers) at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Service, the studio built by the legendary producer after outgrowing his Memphis Recording Service/Sun Studio.


    Recorded primarily live as a five-piece, Among the Ghosts eschews the Stax-inspired horns and Jerry Lee Lewis-style boogie piano featured on some of the band’s past recordings for a streamlined rock & roll sound that pays homage to their seminal influences as it seeks to push that legacy into the future. For a band who carried the torch of the alt-country movement back in the 90’s and helped pave the way for what is now called Americana, Lucero have re-discovered what inspired them in the first place. The sound is more their own and at the same time not exactly like anything they’ve done before. This is a band settling into their craft. The 10-song disc’s title is both a tribute to the spirits which roam the streets of their fabled city, as well as the hard road the determinedly independent band set out on 20 years ago. The band played around 200 shows per year for many of those 20 years.

    Jon Snodgrass


    Jon Snodgrass was born and raised in St. Joseph, Missouri,[3] and later settled in Fort Collins, Colorado, before forming Armchair Martian in the early 1990s.[4] In 1996, he started recording songs with ALL singer Chad Price under the name Drag the River.[3] Since then, he has continued putting out music with both bands, as a solo artist, and as a member of Scorpios.

    Snodgrass has collaborated with Chad Rex, Hagfish, Descendents, Stephen Egerton, Joey Cape, Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut, Cory Branan, Frank Turner, Chuck Ragan (Revival Tour and Hot Water Music), Tim McIlirath (Rise Against), Chris Wollard (Hot Water Music and Ship Thieves), Vinnie Fiorello (Less Than Jake), Scott Reynolds (ALL), Mike Herrera (MxPx), Arliss Nancy, and Jimmy Islip.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    Katie Pruitt with Opening Act Jack Van Cleaf

    Katie Pruitt is living proof of music’s power to transform the way we experience the world. Soon after the arrival of her acclaimed debut Expectations—a 2020 LP on which she documented her journey in growing up queer in the Christian South—the Georgia-bred singer/songwriter/guitarist heard from countless listeners that her songs had impacted their lives on an elemental level. With her sophomore album Mantras, the Nashville-based musician now looks inward to explore such matters as gender identity, self-compassion or the lack thereof, and the struggle for peace in times of chaos and uncertainty—ultimately arriving at a body of work that speaks to the strength in undoing harmful self-beliefs and fully living your truth.

    Mainly produced by Collin Pastore and Jake Finch, Mantras delves deeper into the empathetic storytelling and incisive self-examination that defined Expectations—an album that earned Pruitt a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year from the Americana Music Association and drew praise from major outlets like Rolling Stone (who hailed Pruitt as a “dynamic new presence”) and Pitchfork (who noted that “[h]er songs are patient but determined, navigating serious subjects with quiet familiarity”). This time around, Pruitt sets her lived-in lyricism to a folk-leaning sound informed by her love for the more experimental edges of indie-rock, stacking her songs with plenty of propulsive grooves and overdriven guitars as well as working with musicians like string arranger Laura Epling (Orville Peck, Spencer Cullum).

    Although several songs took shape with the help of co-writers like singer/songwriter Ruston Kelly (Bethany Cosentino, Amanda Shires), Pruitt wrote most of Mantras on her own and imbued her lyrics with an expansive element of autobiography. In penning the album-opening “All My Friends (Are Finding New Beliefs),” she mined inspiration from a Christian Wiman poem of the same name, dreaming up a fuzzed-out and summery track etched with both self-aware reflection and sharp-
    witted observation on the search for clarity and purpose. A profoundly introspective album, Mantras turns the lens on her own inner life with songs like “Self Sabotage”—a gloriously cathartic track that opens up about her struggle with negative thought loops. And while Mantras often pushes into emotionally heavy terrain, its songs frequently echo the radiant sense of joy and discovery that defined the album-making process. On “Naive Again,” for instance, Pruitt infuses the bright and dreamy tones of glockenspiel and xylophone into her melancholy contemplation on loss of innocence.

    Looking over the tracklist to Mantras, Pruitt notes that a certain narrative thread emerged without her intention. “I didn’t realize it at the time, but the throughline for this record ended up being my own personal journey of letting go and learning how to love myself again—it begins with tension, frustration, and fear and resolves to a place of acceptance, surrender, and stillness,” she says. “I hope when people hear the record they feel what I felt after writing it, which was a sense of trusting myself and trusting that—no matter how bad things look—there’s always hope where there’s fear. I know that so much of the time we feel alone in our pain, so hopefully these songs help everyone to see that they can work through those big life changes and end up loving themselves a lot more.”

    The Mountain Goats with Opening Act TBA

    Jenny from Thebes began its life as many albums by the Mountain Goats do, with John Darnielle playing the piano until a lyric emerged. That lyric, “Jenny was a warrior / Jenny was a thief / Jenny hit the corner clinic begging for relief,” became “Jenny III,” a song which laid down a challenge he’d never taken up before: writing a sequel to one of his most beloved albums. 

    The Mountain Goats’ catalog is thick with recurring characters—Jenny, who originally appears in the All Hail West Texas track bearing her name, as well as in “Straight Six” from Jam Eater Blues and Transcendental Youth side two jam “Night Light,” is one of these, someone who enters a song unexpectedly, pricking up the ears of fans who are keen on continuing the various narrative threads running through the Mountain Goats’ discography before vanishing into the mist. In these songs, Jenny
    is largely defined by her absence, and she is given that definition by other characters. She is running from something. These features are beguiling, both to the characters who’ve told her story so far and to the listener. They invite certain questions: Who is Jenny, really? What is she running from? Well, she’s a warrior and a thief, and, this being an album by the Mountain Goats, it’s a safe bet whatever she’s fleeing is something bad. Something catastrophically bad.

    Jenny from Thebes is the story of Jenny, her southwestern ranch style house, the people for whom that house is a place of safety, and the west Texas town that is uncomfortable with its existence. It is a story about the individual and society, about safety and shelter and those who choose to provide care when nobody else will.
    This is what a follow-up to All Hail West Texas entails. 

    Decamping to Tulsa, Oklahoma’s legendary The Church Studio with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow’s The Globe Sessions), that is exactly what the Mountain Goats did. Jenny from Thebes is a lush collection of showtunes, pushing Darnielle as a vocalist and the Mountain Goats as a band, broadening their sonic palette once again by leaning into influences like Godspell, Jim Steinman, and The Cars. The resulting album cuts a path that is simultaneously full of
    allusions longtime Mountain Goats fans will spin entire mythologies from while also being their most inviting record for those who’ve yet to be converted to the cause.

    Ironically, that same stress makes it impossible for Jenny to see that she’s on the verge of being broken until it’s too late. Explaining the title of the album, Darnielle notes that Jenny is not unlike a character from Greek literature, someone on the verge of an unimaginable tragedy whose signs and portents will not make themselves known to her until she finds herself amidst the wreckage. “These things never happen in isolation,” he says. “One bad event leads to and is the reason for another bad event. Jenny
    should know that you can’t keep a safehouse in a west Texas town, but she’s too wrapped up in the process and has to go through the loss to understand how it happened.”

    Whether or not she comes to understand how it happened, the events of Jenny from Thebes set Jenny on the run. A woman and her custom yellow and black Kawasaki held in the memories of a vanishing few, someone who held the gate for as long as she could, as a warrior might, before disappearing into the night like a thief.

    Saint Motel with Opening Act GIBBZ

    Founded by vocalist A/J Jackson and guitarist Aaron Sharp—film-school classmates with a shared appreciation of obscurist cinema—and later rounded out by bassist Dak Lerdamornpong and drummer Greg Erwin, Saint Motel first revealed their imaginative take on alt-pop with their 2009 debut EP ForPlay. The band soon amassed a devoted underground following, thanks in part to a series of “experiential concerts” with such themes as Zombie Prom and Judgment Day, then found breakout success with their critically acclaimed 2012 debut album Voyeur. After signing to Elektra Records, Saint Motel saw their fanbase grow exponentially with the release of My Type EP, a 2014 effort whose platinum-certified title track became a top 10 alternative radio hit. In 2016, they flipped the script once again with saintmotelevision—a first-of-its-kind full-length accompanied by virtual music videos for all ten of its tracks, making it the world’s first-ever virtual-reality album. In addition to touring with acts like Arctic Monkeys, Imagine Dragons, Band of Skulls, and Weezer, Saint Motel have also spent much of the last half-decade bringing their captivating live show to leading festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo.

    Palace with Opening Act Jens Kuross

    Palace is a British alternative rock band from London. The band has released two albums to date. Palace began in 2014, releasing their debut EP titled Lost In The Night. In 2015, Palace released their second EP titled Chase The Light. In 2016, Palace released their first full-length album titled So Long Forever.

    Jens Kuross
    Angsty teenage punk rocker, turned disciplined jazz disciple, turned session musician muscle, turned introspective song smith, turned touring crooner and purveyor of raw emotion, Jens Kuross has worn out more than his share of hats.

    While recording and touring as the drummer and keyboardist for indie-electronic luminaries The Acid, singer-songwriter Ry X, and the deep house duo Howling, Jens Kuross managed to steadily release a string of singles and EPs that garnered all the right kind of attention, earning him deals with both Brixton based Aesop records, as well as Domino Publishing Company. His profile continued to grow after his music was featured on TV shows “Lucifer” and “13 Reasons why”, all while he was touring globally, opening for artists such as Rhye, Bonobo, and Gogo Penguin. Jens Kuross finally released his debut full-length record “The Man Nobody Can Touch” in late 2020 too much enthusiasm from both fans and industry alike and his newest offering, an EP titled "Everything is Poisonous" comes out on Berlin indie label Bigamo this spring.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    Pokey LaFarge with Opening Act TBA


    After crisscrossing the nation for the last half-decade looking for a home, Pokey LaFarge found himself in Mid-Coast Maine. Upon arriving, the Illinois-born
    singer/songwriter/actor pursued a major life change, working 12-hour days on a local farm—a turn of events that catalyzed an extraordinary burst of creativity and redefined his sense of purpose as an artist. On his new album Rhumba Country, LaFarge reveals his newly heightened devotion to making music that channels pure joy. “There was a time when I glorified sadness because I lost sight of who I was, but now I understand that creating and expressing joy is my gift, and gifts are meant to be shared,” he says. Reclaiming his voice, LaFarge has recorded his boldest album yet.

    Rhumba Country was initially shaped from material that emerged while LaFarge was deep in work on the farm. “I’d be pushing a plow or scattering seeds, and the songs
    would just come to me,” he recalls. But as he moved forward with his songwriting, something felt undeniably amiss. LaFarge then spoke with fellow Midwestern transplant Elliot Bergman (Wild Belle), who suggested he return to city life in Los Angeles for a season so that the two musicians could work together—a collaboration that soon brought the rhumba to LaFarge’s country. As he immersed himself in the album’s creation, LaFarge began dreaming up a kaleidoscopic sound informed by his love of music from far-ranging eras and corners of the globe, including mambo, tropicália, rocksteady, and mid-century American rock-and-roll. 

    LaFarge’s boundless curiosity for music from other cultures played a vital part in shaping the album’s instantly captivating sound. “Listening to a lot of music from
    around the world helped simplify my approach,” he notes, naming Brazilian singer/composer Jorge Ben among his key inspirations on Rhumba Country. “When
    you scale back the chord progressions and get a good rhythm going, the musicians have more freedom to play anything or nothing at all. There’s so much space everywhere, and as a singer, it allows me to be that lead instrument and weave in and out however I want.” At the same time, LaFarge brought a more intense and focused rigor to his songwriting process. “I need to trust in what feels good to me, but I also have to ask myself, ‘Is the message coming through? Am I stimulating thought in a way that might shift someone’s perspective? Am I being honest in telling my story, and am I doing it in love?’” he says.

    Reflecting on the origins of Rhumba Country, LaFarge points to one of the most crucial revelations he experienced while farming: a newfound understanding of the uniquely human potential to be “conduits of continuous creation.” To that end, his effort to provide listeners with “medicine for the soul” has led LaFarge toward a deeper level of dedication when it comes to nurturing his own spirit. “You have to live the life you’re singing in your songs—no matter what you’re going through,” he says. “Everything will come out in your music whether you want it to or not. I’ve realized that the more I can pursue goodness and live in peace, the more I can make the music I was put here to make.” And by living with intention and fully connecting with his truest purpose, LaFarge might finally be ready to lay his head in a place he calls home.

    Waxahatchee with Opening Act Tré Burt

    ‘Tigers Blood’ by Waxahatchee

    One of the hardest working singer-songwriters in the game is named Katie Crutchfield. She was born in Alabama, grew up near Waxahatchee Creek. Skipped town and struck out on her own as Waxahatchee. That was over a decade ago. Crutchfield says she never knew the road would lead her here, but after six critically acclaimed albums, she’s never felt more confident in herself as an artist. While her sound has evolved from lo-fi folk to lush alt-tinged country, her voice has always remained the same. Honest and close, poetic with Southern lilting. Much like Carson McCullers’s Mick Kelly, determined in her desires and convictions, ready to tell whoever will
    listen.

    And after years of being sober and stable in Kansas City–after years of sacrificing herself to her work and the road – Crutchfield has arrived at her most potent songwriting yet. On her new album, Tigers Blood, Crutchfield emerges as a powerhouse – an ethnologist of the self – forever dedicated to revisiting her wins and losses. But now she’s arriving at revelations and she ain’t holding them back.

    Crutchfield says that she wrote most of the songs on ‘Tigers Blood’ during a “hot hand spell,” while on tour in the end of 2022. And when it came time to record, Crutchfield returned to her trusted producer Brad Cook, who brought her sound to a groundbreaking turning point on 2020’s Saint Cloud. They hunkered down at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas – a border town known for cotton and pecans – and searched for another turn, waited for a sign. Initially, MJ Lenderman, Southern indie-rock wunderkind (much like Crutchfield when she started out) came to play electric guitar and sing on “Right Back To It.” But as soon as they tracked it, Cook told Lenderman he had to stay for the rest of the album. And he did.

    “365” is a story of recognition told from a hard-won place of self-acceptance/forgiveness. Crutchfield initially started writing it for Wynonna Judd, with whom she has written and performed in the past, until the lyrics started hitting closer and closer to home. The writer Annie Ernaux says, “writing is to fight forgetting.” Like Lucinda Williams, Crutchfield’s lyrics are memoir. Throughout ‘Tigers Blood’ Crutchfield is addressing a “you,” but the ‘you’ in “365” evokes raw closeness, vulnerability. “Ya ain’t had much luck but grace is/In the eye of the beholder/And I had my own ideas but/I carried you on my shoulders, anyways.”

    “365” circles back to the beginning of ‘Tigers Blood,’ where Crutchfield’s words ring clear as a bell. Album opener “3 Sisters” starts with Crutchfield singing over hymn-
    like piano chords: “I pick you up inside a hopeless prayer/I see you beholden to nothing/I make a living crying it ain’t fair/And not budging.” ‘Tigers Blood’ is Crutchfield at her most confident and resilient. Staring straight at the truth, forgiving but not forgetting, not batting an eye.
