Hoping that you are well and enjoying a safe holiday season.
I am happy to finally be able to share news regards the 2015 release of Slim Bone Head Volt, Vol. 1, my collaboration with Vincent D'Onofrio. Our record will be out on March 3 via Buddhabug Records. I was initially going for a cassette-only release but I've been convinced to release it in vinyl. For more information, please click here (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=ec2b4ddb81&e=5096c5c3ea) and to preview the single, please click here (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=7246ef1d37&e=5096c5c3ea) . Featured on the album are Ben Holmes, Clara Kennedy, Geoff Kraly, Briggan Krauss, Mike Mcginnis, Kyle Sanna, Vinnie Sperrazza, myself and Vincent D.
We are doing a live show at 7 pm this Saturday at Joe's Pub. There are still tickets available for purchase, here (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=d90d11a7eb&e=5096c5c3ea) .
In other news...
Mother Octopus, formerly known as Yeti Camp, has a show coming up on January 4, 2015, at Brooklyn's very own Barbes (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=27973b0384&e=5096c5c3ea) . Mother Octopus features Mike McGinnis (clarinet), Clara Kennedy (cello), Jonathan Goldberger (guitar) and Vinnie Sperrazza (drums), all fiercely talented musicians kind enough to learn my music. I am very thankful.
My duo (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=9b9be552c6&e=5096c5c3ea) with Kyle Sanna is currently recording its follow-up to the record with a really long title (The Hare Said a Prayer to the Rainbow and Followed the Fox Down the Hole). We will be in South Carolina and Georgia this January and are planning a west coast jaunt in the early summer. Please stay tuned for more details (I realize that this is my fault that many events remain mysterious, as my allergy to online communication is known).
This year I also had the pleasure of playing a lot of music (and some BASS!!!) with songwriters Matt Kanelos (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=7a1aca3fea&e=5096c5c3ea)  and David Heatley (http://danalynmusic.us7.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=a4808c3244a61a2a506a0e7f9&id=2ed10cba7a&e=5096c5c3ea) , the Irish poet Louis de Paor, who let me accompany his beautiful words with a bicycle wheel, and the cast of Family Album, a musical from the writing team of Stew and Heidi Rodewald. Please check all of these folks out when you have a chance.
Thank you so much for reading and I'm hoping that everyone has a lovely transition into 2015.
all the best, Dana
