Lo-Fidelity Records is pleased to announce the debut album and tour for Michael Roe and Derri Daugherty’s latest collaboration, Kerosene Halo. The album is a beautiful and wondrous journey through the back pages of songbooks of some of their most beloved writers. Besides troubadour legends like Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Richard Thompson, the album also features hand-picked tunes from old pals Phil Madeira, Steve Hindalong, Terry Taylor and Larry Norman. The guys’ sweet vocal harmonies and acoustic/electric guitar stylings are present throughout, as well cameos from current and former collaborators Steve Hindalong on percussion, Mark Harmon on bass, and Greg Kellog on pedal steel, dobro and more.
Simple. Sparse. Nostalgic. Gorgeous. The adjectives run riot but the music does not. This is an album for late nights, early mornings, lazy afternoons and relaxing road trips down your favorite highways. Mike says “This record is a labor of love to ourselves and our favorite songwriters. For years, we have wanted to sing harmonies together in a duo setting but never got the chance until now. I have fond memories of singing in similar duos like this during the 1970’s and have missed it ever since. This is a return to a very important part of our roots that inspired so much great music from so many talented writers, not the least of which include some of our closest friends.”
The self titled debut is currently available for pre-order and streaming at the band’s website, www.kerosenehalo.net, and will ship starting July 7th. Pre-orders will receive an instant download of the album, and orders placed between today, June 24th, and midnight (central time) Wednesday, June 29th, will be CD signed by Michael and Derri. The CD will be available in limited numbers at Cornerstone on July 1st in conjunction with the band’s scheduled 3:10pm performance on the Gallery Stage, as well as on the July tour that will follow. The CD will also be available from 77s.com starting July 5th, as well as iTunes (in LP format), Amazon.com, and Emusic.
