DANVILLE — In advance of a national release by SonyRED, Jennie DeVoe brings her brand new CD, “Radiator — The Bristol Sessions,” Sept. 6 to the Royal Theater in Danville for an exclusive, intimate CD release party and concert.
The 225-seat Royal and DeVoe have a history together of sold-out concert experiences that fans hail as some of their favorites. DeVoe and her band will play the new CD in its entirety along with other fan favorites.
Fans will be able to purchase the new CD that night. Advance tickets are available online at royaltheaterdanville.info and www.jenniedevoe.com.
“Radiator” is DeVoe’s third collaboration with famed producer John Parish, best known for his work with PJ Harvey, Tracy Chapman, The Eels and most recently, KT Tunstall. DeVoe and Parish have developed a strong artistic working relationship that has fostered a unique sound with each of DeVoe’s new albums.
Parish also produced DeVoe’s 2004 album “Fireworks & Karate Supplies” and 2009’s “Strange Sunshine.” The new recording features Parish on drums, guitars, and accordion, Billy Fuller on bass (also Robert Plant’s current bass player), and DeVoe’s own bandmates Brett Lodde on guitar and Greg McGuirk on keys and accordion.
A fiercely independent artist, this will be DeVoe’s first effort produced in part through a successful Kickstarter campaign, with The Tony Stewart Foundation being one of the projects biggest supporters. DeVoe raised more 260 percent of her goal through the popular fan-funded website, which allows fans to pledge anywhere from $1 to $10,000 to a creative project, in return for rewards ranging from copies of the finished project to private concerts in their living rooms.
DeVoe, an Indiana-native, has built a career without the backing of a major label — a conscious decision that has allowed her to remain independent and create music on her own terms. DeVoe’s distribution agreement with SonyRED has brought her to the ears of listeners across the country and beyond.
