The Choir E-News Update

Dear friends,

Eleven more feathers are in the river. That is to say, our new album, Burning Like the Midnight Sun, has been recorded, mixed, mastered and delivered (along with the cover art) to that mysterious entity called “the manufacturer.” I’m told (and I believe!) it will be available to you, our devoted listeners, on June 28. It’s been 5 years since O How the Mighty Have Fallen. Thanks for waiting around the bend! (Admittedly, this “river” metaphor feels a bit contrived; but now that I’ve got no more lyrics to write… Well, it’s hard to dam the flow.)

Tim played the bass with unrivaled melodious fury. Buckeye Dan Michaels (from Akron Ohio) played lyricon and sax (best since Chase the Kangaroo if not EVER). Marc rendered his distinctive ambient, trippy-slidy guitar beauty. Derri’s vocals have rarely been more emotive – and his guitar work – magical! And as if it’s not outrageous enough that I’m offering my own rave review of our own album before it’s even “out”… I’ll risk going even further by asserting what will soon be undeniable – The drum tracks are smokin’!

Seriously, we’re just thrilled to “still be at it” after all these years. Thanks for riding the current with us. (Ah! Get a grip on that analogy compulsion, Steve!)

And thanks for listening.

Comrades 2020

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."

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
