"This local favorite joined us in the studio on January 24. He released his album Dog,
back in September and gave candid interviews about how his struggle
with depression influenced the making of the record. He's currently
doing a January residency Wednesdays at the Cedar Lounge in Superior and
will take the stage the same night at 8."
via Sedate Bookings: Charlie Parr's extensive European tour to start this Sunday in Utrecht: The country-blues tradition is full of heartbreak and hard knocks, and Charlie Parr's Dog is
a heartfelt wander-through-an-alley of an album. The Duluth,
Minn.-based songwriter strikes one self-inflicted wound after another,
examining his own mental health and others through an expertly-picked
resonator guitar and lyrics that puncture the soul. With the album we're excited to have Charlie Parr in Europe for the entire month of February and the first part of March:
"I got an organic sounding record. I got the actual thing these songs are about which is what they are about plus what music is for me. It’s not finished with the solitary part of writing the song. It’s never done then. The song is never really finished being written until it’s been performed in front of other people or brought to their attention. So this feels like a very community like effort for me to make music."
