Event description

Description

Livingdog is the name Asheville, North Carolina-based musician Corey Parlamento’s uses for his Indie/Alternative-Folk project. His songs combine the personal narrative lyricism of traditional folk music with experimental instrumentation and production, creating songs that feel both haunting and refreshing.

Parlamento’s most recent release, “Childsurvivors”, was self-recorded and mixed in a converted horse stable in Western North Carolina. It is his most layered and complex album to date and displays his ability to create deeply personal, intimate songs whilst maintaining a diverse sonic landscape. The album was largely inspired by topics ranging from childhood and family to masculinity and dominance vs. power. It weaves somewhere between the melancholic musings of Leonard Cohen and the dreamy experimentation of bands like Sparklehorse and Grandaddy. Prior to the release of “Childsurvivors”, Parlamento had recorded one full-length album titled “Summer Homes” and one concept EP titled “Scavenger Angels”.

Since his emergence in the Asheville area in 2013, Livingdog has progressively become a strong presence in the Asheville music scene. He has recently joined the roster of Asheville record label and arts collective, Eternal Mind Records. “Childsurvivors” was the first release with the Eternal Minds label. Whether performing on tour or at home in the mountains, Livingdog brings audiences an “honest and seductive setlist, driven by haunting, flawless vocals”. (Ali Marshall- The Mountain Xpress)
