Shane T, American Field Day
Add to Calendar
Illiterate Light’s swift come-up belies some humble roots, as they’ve gone from touring the mid-Atlantic on bicycle to being signed by Atlantic Records. In the meanwhile they’ve been grinding it out on the road, wowing audiences as they’ve opened for Mt. Joy, Shakey Graves and Rayland Baxter. Earlier this year, they self-released their debut Sweet Beast EP, and they are putting the finishing touches on a debut full length with Vance Powell (Jack White, Kings Of Leon, Chris Stapleton) and Adrian Olsen (Foxygen, Natalie Prass) — more details on that coming soon
With influences ranging from his degree in Economics to his love of David Lynch films, Shane T has quickly carved out a place of his own in the Indie-pop landscape. His debut EP “Holy Nights, Bad Advice” centers around his mid-twenties coming of age story and the poignant yet often humorous commentary that accompanies it. Recorded in Nashville with an iPhone drum machine app and an array of salvaged Goodwill organs, the six song EP highlights Shane’s uniquely warm tenor vocals and minimalist approach to songwriting
American Field Day
American Field Day is the creative project of Denver singer-songwriter Patrick Armould. At age 16 Armould formed the band Halleway with friends from high school. Buoyed by Armould's songwriting and unmistakable voice, the band found streaming success that would take them to play with nationally touring acts like Houndmouth and Joe Pug. When the band went on hiatus, Armould channeled his energy into American Field Day, which walks the stylistic line between rock n roll and Americana. Fans of Whiskeytown, Jason Isbell and the Avett Brothers will find a lot to like in the melodic, dynamic songs of AFD.
In the summer of 2019 Armould recorded his first EP in Nashville, TN with the guidance of producer Bill Reynolds of Band of Horses. He was backed by a stellar band that included Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket) on guitars and Robbie Crowell (Deer Tick, Midland) on bass and keys. It was a heady beginning for a songwriter who is still finishing his last year of high school, but Armould rose to the occasion and the result is a self titled EP that is marked as much by his melodic songwriting as it his trademark voice.
