@BottletreeCafe: Tinnarose w/ Kate Tucker & @SonsofSweden / @LaurenKrothe Thu 11/20 - @tinnarosemusic

Austin sextet Tinnarose is making their Birmingham debut next week with a show at The Bottletree on Thursday, November 20. Doors are at 9pm. Tickets are $8 adv. and $10 dos. Nashville band Kate Tucker & The Sons of Sweden and local Lauren Krothe are also on the bill.


In support of their self-titled debut album, Austin-based indie folk-rock band and KUTX’s inaugural Artist of the Month TINNAROSE is gearing up to break boundaries and take their stunning live show on the road in November. In celebration of their introductory tour, the band along with director Lauren Pruitt recently filmed a psychedelic-infused video for their remarkable single “When You’re Gone”. “The song, “When You’re Gone” is pulsing and alive and we wanted the video to reflect that energy,” explains vocalist Devon McDermott.

Tinnarose has been on the road this week promoting their self-titled debut that came out this Fall to critical acclaim:
"Freaky Good Folk: I hear Nilsson in their pitch, and the pinched, acute licks of Walter Becker‘s guitar in classic Steely Dan, and Sandy Denny‘s (Fairport Convention) voice, and a host of other amazing sounds."  - Greg Vandy, KEXP, American Standard Time

"Tinnarose is a singer-songwriter showcase of the highest order. (Devon McDermott's) take on "Willie O'Winsbury is a strong candidate for Song Of The Year, the sort of thing that may make the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention. It's simply breathtaking, and it's clear that we have a new talent worthy of our laurels on our hands here." - Pop Matters

"(4 stars) As far as first impressions go, Tinnarose have absolutely killed it." - Prelude Press

"Refreshing and adventurous pop music." - Peter Blackstock, Austin American-Statesman

was recorded on a horse farm in Driftwood, TX by engineer Barrett Walton, and mixed by Grammy-winner Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, Jack White, Modest Mouse).

Tinnarose were also KUTX Artists Of The Month for August here in Austin.

Seattle-born, Nashville-based Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden
  You may have heard them on Birmingham Mountain Radio, with their dream-pop single “Blue Hotel” topping the charts.

Earlier this year, KT+SOS launched what Huffington Post called “a highly ambitious Kickstarter project” to record and release a full length album on vinyl and CD with a music video and short film to accompany each song. 

The band just finished up a full U.S. tour in support of the new album and are currently in Nashville working on an EP to be released in spring 2015. 

Lauren Krothe :
The singer and composer known as Lauren Krothe has released her long-awaited debut album, 'Child of Babylon.' This LP - funded by a highly successful Kickstarter campaign - serves as a moving, evocative introduction to this wonderfully creative chanteuse and songwriter. Krothe sings with the power and elegance of a classically trained mezzo-soprano, capable also of climbing into the soprano register with ease and grace. She is colorfully dramatic without wilting into melodrama. She composes and plays piano with a minimalist's ear, often showing startlingly impeccable taste. Her lyrics are highly poetic, her lines wildly intelligent and charged with character.  

Krothe came up through the gothic/industrial scene, her previous work with the bands Panzer AG and Aesthetic Perfection being among her most notable. She has, however, been writing her own music for decades, and has accumulated a repertoire of approximately 100 songs for vocals and piano.
