David Vandervelde Hits the Road



BLURT fave mounts tour supporting Waiting For the Sunrise album.

By Brian Creech


“I’m a huge Fleetwood Mac
fan,” David Vandervelde says about his music taste in BLURT’s July issue.  Say what you will, but the guy surely seems
to have learned a lot from listening to Rumours perhaps too many times.  His latest
album, Waiting For the Sunrise, has drawn comparisons the Byrds to Bowie to
Christie McVie, and he’s ready to bring his sunny 70’s AM radio sound to a  music hall/bar/church near you. 



The tour begins September 19
in Nashville, TN
at the End and wraps up on October 28 in Houston,
TX at Walter’s on Washington.  Joining Vandervelde on
tour will be Margot & the Nuclear So & So’s as well as Secretly
Canadian labelmates Magnolia Electric, Co. and Throw Me a Statue.  A big, groovy time is sure to be had by all.



And for those out there he
need just a little bit more convincing, Secretly Canadian is currently streaming
two tracks Waiting for the Sunrise for
you to wet your whistle on.  Links and
tour dates are listed below.



Finally, Vandervelde seems
to have been anticipating the new Okkervil
River album The Stand Ins a bit more than most.  Here, he covers the song “Singer Songwriter,”
the second track on The Stand Ins.
