Lake Street Dive

SUPPORT

Lake Street Dive released Free Yourself Up, its second album with Nonesuch Records on May 4. The band — drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael “McDuck” Olson — self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. Lake Street Dive formed in 2004 while students at New England Conservatory and have been touring non-stop ever since, growing from basement venues like The Lizard Lounge in Boston, MA to selling out Radio City Music Hall in New York City. For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio. Adding another player to the process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known background harmonies. “This album is based in the realities in our time,” Kearney reflects, “which have inevitably become part of everyone’s daily life. It’s something you think about and obsess over — and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what’s going wrong.”

Opening will be Jillian and the Giants. They perform timeless American music that uniquely fuses an eclectic collection of influences into a powerhouse transmission of modern Soul-Americana Pop. Led by the haunting and sultry vocals and songwriting of Jillian Bessett, the piano-driven quartet marries modern influences with their strong connection to Soul, Jazz and Blues, Americana, and Western music from the past.
Jillian and the Giants’ debut album Mr. Airplane received rave reviews and was #19 on KXCI’s Top 100 Albums of 2016.
