SINGER-SONGWRITER TO APPEAR ON WUMB EARLIER THAT DAY
FAN PHOTO FROM THE SHOW WILL BE INCLUDED IN ALBUM ARTWORK
WITH SPECIAL GUEST ON VOCALS, WARD HAYDEN FROM BOSTON MUSIC AWARD-WINNING BAND GIRLS GUNS & GLORY
Fresh from a national tour and performing at the Americana Music Festival in Nashville, TN, singer-songwriter Amy Black will be recording a live album at Johnny D's, around the corner from her Davis Square apartment, on January 4 with her band. The Boston Globe has called her music "deeply felt," continuing, "From steely murder ballads to tender love songs that evoke bedrock country tropes, the record is Americana in its broadest definition. It's rooted in folk and country but with tinges of Southern soul and blues."
Ward Hayden from the Boston Music Award-winning band Girls Guns & Glory will sit in on the set. The band is made up of top shelf Boston-area musicians: Jim Scoppa (Duke Robillard), electric guitar, Russell Chudnofsky (Lori McKenna, Sara Borges), rhythm guitar; Lorne Entress (producer of Black's stellar album 'One Time' and drummer for Ronnie Earl), drums; John Styklunas, bass. Tom Dube of Front Of House Sound, who has worked with Rosanne Cash, Jackson Browne, Richard Thompson, and Kathleen Edwards, will engineer the live album.
The audience will have the opportunity to advance purchase the album (both CD and a download before it's even released) for $5. A group photo of all who come out will be included in the artwork for the album. Black plans to release it in the spring and mount a tour behind it.
Black will also appear live on WUMB 91.9FM at noon on January 4.
