The Beautiful Sound

Posted by on Aug 30, 2013

It’s quite easy to be enchanted by the sound of Dana Falconberry. From her 2006 release Paper Sailboat to Though I Didn’t Call It Came (2012), and her exquisite full-length album Leelanau, each song is a unique experience with a complex but delicate beauty. Natural settings – vivid images of rivers, forests, animals – and human emotion go hand in hand in Falconberry’s stories of conflicted feelings, heartache or pure elation. It’s an extraordinary kind of poetry that she uses quite intuitively.

Falconberry recently returned from a month-long tour of the Midwest she did with three members of her band, and no doubt she’s busily preparing for another major performance – her upcoming Austin City Limits Festival debut. She’ll be performing on the first Friday of the two-weekend fest. However, there’s a wonderful opportunity to see her tonight that you won’t want to miss. See Dana Falconberry play at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the indoor stage. And it’s a lovely little triple bill indeed, with Lafayette, LA indie band Brass Bed and local songwriter Jana Horn‘s musical project, Reservations. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Stellar bill. This one comes highly recommended.
