The Gallerist will celebrate the release of Twine at Bourbon & Branch on 7/12
Local trio The Gallerist will release its new EP Twine on July 8th, followed by a release show at Bourbon & Branch on July 12th. Frontman Mike Collins relocated to Philadelphia from Boston in 2011 before the release of his debut EP A Falling Waltz and has spent the subsequent years playing shows all over the tri-state area, including an opening set for Laura Marling last year. Blending a rugged Avett Brothers sound with story-songs that are full of outdoor imagery, Collins’ music is not fragile folk despite the vulnerable lyrics. The new collection of songs that will be featured on Twine were recorded with Philadelphia friends in Levee Drivers and The Lawsuits, so it’s sure to be rootsy, heartfelt and fun. Stay tuned for more from Twine; in the meantime, listen back to the title track from A Falling Waltz below.
