Bryan John Appleby

with special guests ANDY and John Dillon

Thursday | February 18th

8pm | Tractor Tavern

Appleby’s much anticipated forthcoming full-length release The Narrow Valley (November 2015), crafted with Seattle producer Sam Anderson, deals with the sun-bleached landscape of his youth – a dreamy, densely constructed cinematic world more musically tied to the maximalist West Coast pop traditions of outsider California composers like Van Dyke Parks and Brian Wilson than to the folk roots of Appleby’s early work. The Narrow Valley's orchestral character takes dramatic steps away from heartfelt folk balladry, showcasing Appleby’s deftness in composition and arrangement while still managing to deliver the epic line-by-line lyricism he is known for. Whether re-interpreting the songs with the influence of his long-standing live band (multi-instrumentalist Kyle Zantos, bassist Joe Ruppert, drummer Cole Mauro) or performing alone, his range as a writer and performer continually expands outward, and he maintains his ability to connect with and capture the attention of his audiences.
