The “Misery Loves Company”
Fall 2014 Tour

And just like that, it’s October. And with it comes the “Misery Loves Company” tour featuring Michael Roe, Derri Daugherty, and Chris Taylor. A tour “in the round” featuring all three artists playing their songs, telling the stories behind them, and sharing them all in new and unique ways for themselves and the fans. You won’t want to miss this:

“Last April, I brought one of my favorite songwriters Chris Taylor (Love Coma) on the road with me and boy were we miserable! Not with each other, but with the long drives and rough road adventures you commonly experience on tour. So, this time, we decided to compound our misery by adding another favorite songwriter Derri Daugherty (The Choir) to the mess. The concept of a ‘songwriter’s circle in the round’ where a group of artists discuss and play their tunes together is a long-standing tradition in Nashville, so we’ve decided to bring that beloved format from Music City USA to Yourtown USA this Fall. We are really looking forward to singing, playing and sharing our favorite songs with each other and you!!” ~ Michael Roe

“It’s been over three years since Mike and I toured as a duo, so I’m excited for this return to the road and making music with not only Mike, but also Chris Taylor. I look forward to sharing my songs with not only you the fans, but with Mike and Chris in ways that have never been played before in front of a live audience. Tours like this don’t happen every day, and we are blessed to get to share our lives and music with each other, and with each and every one of you.” ~ Derri Daugherty

“When I was a teenager, I would play my 77’s and Choir albums as loud as I could in my headphones (the folks wouldn’t let me listen to Rock and Roll in the house). I got lost in Michael Roe’s wild guitar solos and Derri Daugherty’s atmospheric sonics. I was deep down in the heart of Texas, and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever see these musicians in a live setting – let alone actually tour with them!! Well, it’s a surreal dream come true for me to hit the road with Mike and Derri through the last half of October and beyond. All the excitement of the tour led me to record a new album, called Daylight, and it’s coming out through Lo-Fidelity Records, available now on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Lo-Fidelity’s own Bandcamp page ~ http://tinyurl.com/q8oopd2 There is nothing more special than taking our music to people who want to hear it. We are so grateful to have folks all over the country willing to make this happen! ~ Chris Taylor

Current tour dates are listed at http://www.michaelroe.com/shows.html (click the Tickets button on each listing for complete show details), and continue to watch that space as additional booking is happening now to bring the tour to Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona in November. If you are interested in having the “Misery Loves Company” tour come to your State this fall, please contact booking@lo-fidelity.com for info on how to make that happen.

In support of the current tour, Michael Roe and Lo-Fidelity Records are pleased to announce the release of the 77s Misery Loves Company collection. Meant as a companion piece to the recently remastered and expanded More Miserable Than You’ll Ever Be, Misery Loves Company found Mike digging into the archives for unreleased studio recordings, demos (many of which were recorded with Steve Griffith on drums), and live tracks from the 80’s era 77s. What he found will please even the most casual listener. The 15 track CD will be available on tour starting 10/17/14, and online starting 10/21/14 via the 77s Bandcamp store https://the77s.bandcamp.com/. The album will also be available for download from iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and for streaming on Spotify starting on 10/21/14.

In related news, the 77s album Gimme A Kickstart, and Michael Roe’s And A Phrase or Two, Guadalupe, and Live In Torrance are all now available for purchase via their official Bandcamp pages, as well as iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and for streaming on Spotify.

As always, we thank your for your continued support of Michael Roe, the 77s, Derri Daugherty, and Chris Taylor, and hope to see you on the road this fall.
