‘Over the course of their twenty-one-year career, Okkervil River has released nine albums that have given frontman Will Sheff a reputation as one of the greatest working songwriters in the country. As Sheff and his shifting lineup of players have traveled the world many times over, they’ve made fans ranging from Lou Reed to Barack Obama and been praised by outlets from the New York Times to NPR to Pitchfork, who called Sheff “One of indie rock’s most ambitious thinkers.” 2019 will see Okkervil River’s two-decades-plus trek around the globe captured and anthologized in A Dream in the Dark, a 12-album live series that follows the group from their shaky and earnest beginnings to their sweat-soaked barnstorming rock club days, and from big festival sets into mellow acoustic improvisations. Along the way, A Dream in the Dark presents an alternate history of Okkervil River through the lens of their concerts instead of their albums, drawing from a deep well of recordings catalogued by Sheff and by fans throughout the years. Each installment of this sprawling digital series will come with detailed liner notes including essays and journal entries from the time, interviews with band-members past and present, profiles and collaborations with Okkervil River fans, and copious archival photographs.
To coincide with A Dream in the Dark, Okkervil River will be hitting the road this summer in a stripped-down trio lineup in a reprise of their popular “Rarities & Requests” touring format, where they’ll be playing stretched-out and often highly spontaneous requests-only shows in intimate listening-room venues.’

Support from Christian Lee Hutson

To merely call Christian Lee Hutson an old soul would be to deny the vibrancy of his sound. Championed by LA Record as “sparse and graceful,” Hutson writes songs that the SF Bay Guardian describes as, .”.. Foreboding, bluesy love ballads laden with longing nostalgia.” Despite the maturity and commitment to tradition found in the 22-year-old singer-songwriter’s songs, they vibrate with a youthful energy as if a drunk and sedentary George Jones was being channeled through a drunk and animated Conor Oberst.

Hutson’s debut solo E.P. Will Never Break Up marked his stylistic shift away from the dustbowl-era sound of the recently defunct Driftwood Singers in favor of a more recent tradition of country songwriting in the vein of Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam. This lean towards the modern continues with Hutson’s full-length debut The Hell With It, out on Trailer Fire Records in March. The Hell With It finds Hutson working once again alongside Grammy-nominated producer David Mayfield, who also produced the Driftwood Singers’ debut.

Christian Lee Hutson still maintains the same rigorous touring schedule that took the Driftwood Singers across the U.S. and back any number of tread-wearing times, so come out and join him for a sour drink of some sort and some newborn songs that retain a feel so well-worn, weathered, and welcoming that they whimper and creak as they pull a stool out for you at the bar.

With anthemic choruses, lush 3 part harmonies, and rhythms rooted just as deeply in Motown as in rock ’n’ roll of the past and present, The High Divers create songs that nod to the classics, while carving out a sonic space all their own. A fixture of the South Carolina music scene, the band is known for it’s charismatic on-stage swagger and it’s ability to get the crowd completely and unabashedly involved. “Every show we play, I get people to sing along with us, and it’s a beautiful thing, something I look forward to every night” says Luke Mitchell, of the call and response hidden within the song “Summertime”.
