Tyler Ramsey (former lead guitarist and co-songwriter for Band of Horses) and Carl Broemel (guitarist of My Morning Jacket) are headed to The Burl this coming Tuesday, February 19th to kickoff their c0-headlining 2019 Winter Duo Tour.
Touring in support of his upcoming album For the Morning due out April 5th, Ramsey has honed his signature sound, weaving elements of Rock, Folk and Country to create an album that focuses on change and balance, something every touring musician has to come to terms with at some point in their career.
Filled with expert guitar work, twinkling pianos and wistful, nostalgic lyrics, For the Morning finds Ramsey yearning for his peaceful, family-centric life at home in Asheville, NC., all while questioning the Rock n’ Roll lifestyle that comes with being a part of a household, Grammy-nominated outfit like Band of Horses. This is perhaps best illustrated on the catchy lead track “A Dream of Home” (available for listening below). All this translates to album that is both meditative, soulful and full of depth and beauty, all while reinforcing Ramsey as one of Americana’s most gifted songwriters.
Released in late 2018, Carl Broemel is still on the road showcasing his fourth solo album Wished Out, a guitar-shredding, vocal-heavy record that features several tracks that wouldn’t be out of place on any MMJ venture, such as the opening track “Dark Matter”. On Wished Out, Broemel also seizes the opportunity separate himself from the band with slower, acoustic-driven tracks like “Starting From Scratch” with simple structures that make for perfect crowd sing-alongs.
The 2019 Winter Duo Tour is a short run of shows that will pair two of the best Americana/Folk artists for a special night of meaningful tunes, however I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a few guitar-heavy barnburners throughout the sets.
