Tue June 21: Evening Darling: Americana Folk


Tue June 21: Evening Darling: Americana Folk

*Evening Darling formed in 2015 with Erica Lane (vocals), Nick Lerangis
(guitars, vocals), Dan Burke (drums) and Dave Letchinger (keyboard), after
the quartet spent three years together playing in NYC’s The Hunting Party. *

*While they cut their teeth in the New York music scene playing a wistful
brand of folk and Americana, the band began to brush up against their
musical boundaries after recording their second EP, Sirens and Lights, at
Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn with producer Jeremy Backofen
(The Felice Brothers). After releasing Sirens and Lights and the
accompanying music video on SPIN’s Under The Gun review

and Bushwick
music blog APUTUMPU
, Lane
and her three bandmates decided to strike out on their own, booking a
string of weekends on the road, taking the band up and down the East Coast
with a brand new lineup and barely any time to rehearse. The foursome took
new and old songs from Newport, RI, to tumbledown towns in upstate New
York, all the way down to Durham, NC, and returned as Evening Darling.*

*Burke insists that he saw “Evening, Darling!” sprayed across the side of a
desolate Queens warehouse while driving to the band’s rehearsal studio in
Gowanus. The band quickly decided to use this as their new name, but have
unsuccessfully tried to find the original street art. Evening Darling’s
music is as elusive as the graffiti that gave them their name, ranging from
snarly Tom Petty-inspired heartland rock to Patsy Cline-influenced country
R&B to sprawling tightly composed pop reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac. The
touchpoint is Lane’s voice, which “reflect[s] and range[s] from the sweet
sounds of Emmylou Harris to the darker side of Marissa Nadler.” (Bluegrass
Situation, 2013)*

*With Jeremy Backofen again at the helm, Evening Darling is returning to
the studio in August 2015 to record a full length album.
