For The Lemon Twigs, the road is home! Come over and stay awhile, listen to the harmonic sound of New York’s favorite brother band The Lemon Twigs on tour in 2023!
CHRIS STAMEY GROUP features in-demand session drummer Rob Ladd (the Connells) and adroit bassist Robert Sledge (Ben Folds Five), with Matt McMichaels (Mayflies USA) and Stamey blending their voices and electric guitars. Stamey has participated in indie music of all stripes since the 1970s, as a musician, a producer, and a composer/arranger. His new album, The Great Escape, is slated for Summer 2023 and features ace pedal steel player Eric Heywood as well as members of Chatham County Line and Mipso.
New Songs for the 20th Century, a songbook and double CD of 26 new tunes inspired by the Great American Songbook, was released in 2019 to general acclaim, followed in 2020 by a companion collection, A Brand-New Shade of Blue. Other recent albums include Lovesick Blues and Euphoria, as well as Falling Off the Sky with the dB’s. As a producer, he has worked with Ryan Adams, Alejandro Escovedo, Flat Duo Jets, Skylar Gudasz, Tift Merritt, Le Tigre, and Yo La Tengo. His original jazz radio play, Occasional Shivers, premiered nationwide on Christmas Day 2016. Stamey operates Modern Recording, a studio in Chapel Hill, NC.
For this performance, by request, the band will be playing several selections from the seminal 1976 indie release Sneakers.
