Visual artist/singer/songwriter/guitarist Ramona Cordova has announced a pair of East Coast dates this month and next. These will be the first US shows Cordova has played since last May, as he spent a great deal of 2006 overseas on a highly critically acclaimed European tour.
For those that aren't familiar with the fairytale-like artistic genius of Ramona Cordova, read my review of his debut album, The Boy Who Floated Freely, to get a bit of background info, then check out the song "Inside The Gypsy Bar" below.
Cordova's live shows are intimate affairs, usually featuring just himself and a classical guitar. If you're lucky enough to live in Brooklyn, you can see for yourself what this guy is all about and you won't even have to spend a dime, as Cordova will be playing a FREE gig @ Zebulon with fellow ECA Records artists Christians & Lions on January 5. He'll then head down to Philly for a one-off date with Dr. Dog on February 16. Details below.
01.05.07 - Brooklyn, NY (Zebulon, w/ Christians & Lions)
02.16.06 - Philadelphia, PA (Johnny Brenda's, w/ Dr. Dog)
