Joe Purdy w/ The Giving Tree Band (New Music Seminar) - 6/19Tuesday, June 19 2012 6:30pm Doors / 8:00pm Start Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest
Celebrated singer/songwriter, Joe Purdy returns to City Winery after a year hiatus with The Giving Tree Band. City Winery welcomes the unique style of storytelling through song, commanding silence and prompting roars though his crystal-clear voice and acoustic guitar. For Joe, it’s all about the audience. This direct communication with his fans has, year after year, album after album, translated from the stage to the further dissemination of his folklore.
Joe's writing process is heavily influenced by his environment. His albums act as a travel guide for his experiences. Last Clock On The Wall (2009) was recorded over 6 days at Old Mill Studios, located in a 17th Century mill converted into a live arts theater in Strathaven, just outside of Glasgow, Scotland. Take My Blanket and Go (2007) was recorded in NYC following a UK tour in 2006, You Can Tell Georgia (2006) was recorded outside of London, immediately following a European tour with Tom McRae, while Paris in the Morning (2006) was recorded during a short visit to Paris a few months later. And, in contrast, Canyon Joe (2007) was recorded at his home in California, after being stranded in New Mexico during a blizzard over New Years Eve.
As announced last month, come this spring, Joe takes it all on the road for a string of dates throughout the North American continent in support of This American, kicking off in Austin, TX at the famed venue, the Parish on April 23rd and continuing non-stop through West Coast venues (including the Troubadour in LA on April 30th), to May 19th in St Louis, MO at the Off Broadway Nightclub, then a break, only to re-commence on June 8th in Nashville, TN at the Mercy Lounge and through the East Coast and Canada to the end of the month.

ABOUT THE GIVING TREE BAND
For brothers Todd and Eric Fink of The Giving Tree Band, there is no distinction between playing music and just plain living. They have extended their brotherhood into an epic collective known as The Giving Tree Band. A band's band, the Brothers Fink and company live, work, and tour the country together - keeping tune with nature, sleeping under the stars, bathing in rivers, and treating time as the only real currency.
