Mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual WYOmericana Caravan Tour, hitting the road May & June 2014. We are so excited to welcome aboard The Patti Fiasco and to welcome back J Shogren Shanghai’d. Visit WYOmericana.com for more information.
Our Daytrotter.com Duo session from October 16 has been posted!! Super studio vibe with engineer Mike Gentry, and we were feeling totally relaxed. This is one of the few recordings we have in the Duo format with suitcase kick-drum, guitars, banjo and voices in one room with no overdubs. We are honored to be the first Wyoming singer-songwriters to be invited to record there. And check out that artwork! Listen to the session.
Daytrotter has long been on our radar for its killer production, original artwork of each band session, and an environment that seems to have inspired performances that fall somewhere in between a stage show and a studio recording. Which is why we are so excited to announce that Screen Door Porch will make its Daytrotter debut on October 16! Members will be able to listen to us record the session live at 2pm Central time. This will be a Duo show.
What is Daytrotter? “… a website for the recording studio Horseshack [in Rock Island, Illinois], which hosts recording sessions with many popular and typically up-and-coming indie music acts. The sessions can be compared to that of a radio station’s lounge recordings, where musicians passing through the town can record live in the studio. Wolfgang’s Vault bought a majority stake in the company in 2008.” Head on over to the official Daytrotter site to learn more about this amazing studio project and listen to sessions by some of our favorite artists.
Mark your calendars! October 16, 2pm Central.
The WYOmericana Caravan tour has been over for more than a month now, but we are still thinking about all that fun we had traveling around with the crazy circus of folks and playing all that great music. Our friends at Mountain Khakis (and one of our tour sponsors!) asked us how everything went and if we would write up a summary about the tour for their MK Livin’ Blog. Why certainly! Here’s an excerpt from that blog post (written by SDP’s own Seadar Rose)…
“As a musician on the tour I can easily say this was the best adventure I have ever been a part of! Touring the Rockies with some of the most talented artists I know was an inspiring experience. We played in bars, theatres, backyards and vans. We met new friends and fans throughout the Rockies and re-confirmed our love for the West and its people.”
