Melting Vinyl are pleased to welcome Grant-Lee Phillips and Howe Gelb to the Komedia October 8th. The acclaimed dark Americana musicians pair up for a very special co headline tour- each will play a solo set, before coming together as a duo.
ABC News called Grant-Lee Phillips, “One of the most gifted songwriters of his generation…” Phillips has had a consistent and enthusiastic following among fans and critics alike. He’s enjoyed notoriety as a recording artist, comedic actor and film composer. His career started as frontman of Grant-Lee Buffalo. He was named “ male vocalist of the year” in 1995 by Rolling Stone. USA Today called him a, “soulful balladeer” and one “who continues to solidify his place in the upper tier of Americana.”
Before the term “alt-country” was even coined, Tuscon-bred troubadour Howe Gelb was embarking on a career that has so far yielded over three dozen albums – from his legendary band Giant Sand to his current solo career. On his recent record, The Coincidentalist Howe tiptoes around a Beat-like faith in the unknowable. In 2013, he worked with the Scottish singer/songwriter KT Tunstall on her fifth studio album Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon. He co-wrote and co-produced, and sang on several songs. His own solo album entitled ‘The Coincidentalist’ was released on New West Records in November 2013.
Don’t miss the chance to see these two intriguing musicians! Tickets onsale 14/3/14!
