About this Event

DANIEL DONATO:

WATCH | LISTEN | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM

Instrumentalists bear the burden of communicating musical ideas without the aid of lyrics or storytelling proper. For many years, that’s how 2018 Americana Award nominee Daniel Donato operated as the guitarist for Nashville acts like The Wild Feathers, Paul Cauthen and The Don Kelley Band.

From age 14, Donato has developed his brand of crisp, soulful, on-the-edge telecaster picking under bar lights, honing his skills and proving his mettle within the city’s prominent live music scene. All the while, a growing love of songwriting mirrored the pace of his ever-improving guitar chops.

Now, a short three years after his departure from Kelley’s classic country outfit, the 23-year-old is signed to WME as an artist with a docket of jam-ready country and bluegrass songs. Backed by his three-piece “Cosmic Country Band” – cosmic country is a catch-all term for experimental roots music, often assisted by electronic sounds – Donato stands at the frontier of his career with characteristic intrepidity, no longer bounded by the expressive limitations of his instrument.

His strident voice and explorative songwriting carry his music into new territory, offering bold ideas to his fan base while staying true to what drew them to him in the first place: a palpable love of music delivered through excelled craft. With one eye on the night’s gig and another on the ages, Donato is continuing his journey down country music’s long and winding road, leaving no stone unturned.

DRINKARD SISTERS:

WATCH | LISTEN | FACEBOOK

Bonnie and Caitlin Drinkard have been performing around the Detroit music scene for more than a decade, and have been singing together and working on music for even longer than that. But it wasn’t until last autumn when we got to hear their debut LP, Enough Already. They put out an EP in 2012, then a few singles and Christmas songs, but now they have a record, on vinyl, recorded/mixed/mastered with Warren Defever and featuring several stellar contributions like Pete Ballard’s pedal steel, Nick Landstrom’s drums, Ryan Harroun’s bass, and Dan Clark’s electric guitar. The star of the show is, of course, the dazzling harmonies between the Drinkards, trading off leads in the verses and then melding their voices together into a beautiful flourish. Their melodious voices add harmonies and adorn the background of the songs of the Craig Brown Band. Brown’s The Lucky Ones Forget was released on Third Man Records last year. Enough Already came out on the Detroit-based label Tool and Die Recordings—and the Drinkards would quickly sell out of the copies they took with them across the pond to include at the CBB merch table; expectedly so—because fans of what CBB is laying down could easily fall in love with the Drinkard’s progressive Americana, neo-country, indie-twang, melody-centric music.
