Connor Christian & Southern Gothic To Release New Album in 2013.
I first heard of Connor Christian & Southern Gothic over the summer, and I immediately fell in love with their rootsy sound! With five members, Christian, on piano, guitar, and vocals, Jeff Spirko playing guitar, guitar, banjo, mandolin, piano and singing vocals, Elena Martin on fiddle, piano, mandolin and background vocals, Joe Abramson on bass and Shawn Thacker taking care of drums and percussions, this group’s music is a multi-instrumental effort! Since they have such well rounded talent, they’re music has a complex, full bodied quality that makes each listen a new experience. You can hear it below for yourself!
Happily, this stellar group will be releasing a brand new album, New Hometown, in 2013. Featuring 18 new tracks, Connor is responsible for co-writing 16 of the songs, and Spirko contributed his writing skills as well!
“It was written over a few short months. But it nevertheless attempts to chronicle a lifetime’s worth of stories. Good times & bad, love & loss – I wrote these songs with a little help from some of my best friends from the road to try and begin to tell my story.” -Connor Christian
New Hometown will debut on February 12th, and in the meantime, you can catch them on the road with Corey Smith Be sure to take a listen below, and stay tuned for more news on CC&SG!
