A FREE In-Store Concert with Midwest Favorites SETH BERNARD & DAISY MAY
A "wordmonger of the first order" plus a voice "between a cowgirl lilt and a honey warble."
Saturday , March 04, 2006
Location: Elderly Instruments
Separately, young Mid-Michigan singer/songwriters Seth Bernard and Daisy May (May Erlewine) had both become artists of note on the Midwest folk scene and beyond. Now, after having teamed up and taken to the road together some two years ago, they're completing a CD as a duo (tentatively self-titled Seth Bernard & Daisy May), recorded in the historical Calumet Theater and scheduled for release in February.
The album Seth Bernard & Daisy May, featuring all original songs, is backed by the Copper Country Quintet, consisting of Lansing's Dominic Suchyta on bass, Drew Howard, and Andrea Moreno-Beals. Seth and May--along with the quintet--will be performing album release shows throughout Michigan during February and March. They're playing The Creole Gallery in Lansing's Old Town on Friday evening, March 3. Tickets will be available for sale at Elderly by early February.
"With a voice that vacillates between a cowgirl lilt and a honey warble, Daisy May operates comfortably in the worlds of old-time country and Dylan-esque folk." - Grand Rapids Magazine
"He's a wordmonger of the first order--playful, exuberant, smart and original--with a musical sophistication beyond his years." - Chris Rietz for the Lansing State Journal
Daisy May has worked a variety of rooms, largely on the East Coast and in the Midwest, from New York's Fez and Boston's famed Club Passim to a string of venues and festivals in her home state of Michigan, stretching from the Ark in Ann Arbor to the historic Calumet Theatre in the Upper Peninsula. Daisy's albums "Heart Song" and "Sleepless" are both sung from the bottom of her toes with gusto and sweetness.
Raised on northern Michigan's music scene, Seth has traversed the many worlds of music collecting hints of jazz, blues, traditional folk, straight-up rock, and even old spiritutals, carving a unique place for himself in the Americana music of today. His
lyrics are compassionate, loving, honest, and hilarious. His
album "Being This Being" presents his original songs in the inventive and uplifting way that only Seth can provide.
This innovative duo is living proof that the whole can easily offer more than the sum of the parts. Stop in at Elderly at noon on that sure-to-be-a-bleak late-winter Saturday, March 4, and let Seth Bernard & Daisy May show you what an accomplished singer/songwriter duo can do.
