Video: Dana Falconberry

Dana Falconberry - "Petoskey Stone"

Here is a brand new video from Dana Falconberry. It comes from her forthcoming release, Though I Didn't Call It Came, which was recorded in an old church in Austin, TX. It is a prelude to a full-length release recorded during the same session, which will be released later in 2012. While her past records have emphasized the sparse and delicate, these songs are lushly orchestrated with a full six-piece band, a string quartet and harpist, rich four part harmonies, and a host of unexpected accents from torn paper to prepared piano.

A Michigan native, Falconberry has thrived musically in Austin, TX, hailed by the Austin Chronicle as one of the city's "most promising singer-songwriters" and "most arresting female vocalists." She has captivated audiences with her powerful live shows and haunting recordings, receiving acclaim far beyond the reaches of her hometown. The past few years have found her touring extensively through the US, Europe, and Japan. In 2011, she starred in the critically-lauded music documentary on the Austin music scene, Echotone, which was awarded a New York Times Critics' Pick.

Though I Didn't Call It Came is out January 24th, 2012 on Crossbill Records. You can catch Dana Falconberry in Austin on 12.30.11 at Frank and on 01.12.12 for the EP Release Show at The Mohawk.
