Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra
FABLE
Available Today

Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra have released the much anticipated project – FABLE – today, August 21.

This project is filled with what Dunn’s fans have come to love: a musical collaboration of creative phrasings, eclectic instruments and songs that get stuck in your head for days.  FABLE, largely inspired by the fiction works of C.S. Lewis, pairs vivid imagery and fascinating characters with spiritual allegory to create a musical project unique, both sonically and lyrically.

Early reviews agree.

“Benjamin Dunn has penned some original and insightful songs which inspire imaginings of heaven and grace…It’s hard to find fault with FABLE.” – Indie Vision Music

“A perfect summer sounding record” – Tunes International

Recorded in Harrisburg, PA, FABLE, like albums in the past has a rotating cast of musicians involved.  On the album, the Animal Orchestra consists of Dunn (Lead Vocals, Synth, Guitars and Banjo), Nathan Horst (Guitars, Banjo, Background Vocals, and Synth), Joel Semke (Bass and Synth Bass) and Rusty Fuller (Drums and Glockenspiel).  The live show will have a variety of participants, depending on the show date and location.

This week, Dunn and his band are heading to Europe for a quick tour, before launching the FABLE Tour in the US in October.

European Tour Dates:
Sept 1 – London, England
Sept 5 – Bleskensgraaf, Netherlands
Sept 7 – Kiel, Germany
Sept 9 – Lyon, France
Sept 12 – Bergen, Norway
Sept 14 – Helsinki, Finland

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Between the White Noise

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
