Dusty Stray Presents: FIRE PLACE Album Launch Spectacular
Since 2009, Amsterdam-based, Texas-bred singer-songwriter Jonathan Brown has been uniting opposites. Under the moniker of Dusty Stray he’s made murder ballads sound cozy and turned ancient folk songs into futuristic tunes. On his sixth album Fire Place he finds a new paradox: singing of deep sorrow with a lighthearted dreampop touch. Seldom before has heartbreak sounded so comforting.
With electronic/folk musician and producer Stuart Cullen (Pilote) at the controls, Fire Place represents a new musical direction for Dusty Stray. In the 13 songs that make up the album, the trademark melancholic, acoustic Dusty Stray sound is newly embellished by subtle beats, gentle orchestration and a lush electronic atmosphere.
Accompanied by a full band, special props and projections, Jonathan's performance and celebration of Fire Place will resemble an evening at the fireplace: warm and sheltered, introspective and slightly hallucinatory.
