We are pleased to announce the release of Ed’s debut solo album Lies & Wishes on the Brooklyn based Royal Potato Family label. Produced by Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin and set to hit stores on April 29th, the record is built around refined melodies, acoustic guitars and sparse arrangements, yet Berlin’s production colors the tracks with squalls of electric guitar, affected vocals, drum loops and assorted analog keyboard flourishes. Visit edwarddavidanderson.com for more info.
It’s true folks. Exactly two years to the day of the last performance, Backyard Tire Fire will reunite for one set only in support of UP AND AT THEM! A BENEFIT TO END MS.
