Dave Hanson Band Announces New Live Release. We are exclusively premiering one of the tracks ‘Joanna’ Now!
We are unashamed fans of The Dave Hanson Band and indeed they were one of our invited Blogtober acts at that festival last year. Now out of the blue, he tells us that a live EP is imminent and the band is letting us premiere one of the tracks. To explain the background, we may as well include here the group’s background notes to the release:
After 5 years of touring North America with his previous band The Dunwells, Dave Hanson’s ultimate goal as a solo artist was to return to the stage and perform his songs LIVE!. “I absolutely love the tour life and the excitement of playing for a different audience in a different city every night” Hanson states.
Following the release of his debut album Almost Horizontal to critical acclaim in June 2016, Hanson was able to achieve this goal – playing to venues across the UK in support of the album including festivals such as Cornbury and Caffe Nero “Artist of the Month” tour. This incessant touring schedule strengthened and tightened his band and led to the recording of his new EP – Dave Hanson LIVE!
“I’m a big fan of classic live albums such as The Who’s Live at Leeds, The Rolling Stones Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out etc.. and thing I loved about those records was how much fun the band seemed to be having onstage – you can really hear it in the music” claims Hanson.
