Little Bird Courage by Old Canes

Old Canes is Lawrence, Kansas legend Chris Crisci (of Appleseed Cast fame) is hitting the road with Old Canes for a two week U.S. tour heading out to the Saddle Creek CMJ showcase in New York. Last year they played at the Brillobox (show review here) and performed one of my top 10 shows for the year, coming in at #4. The band is still touring behind their last album, Feral Harmonic, which also made my top 10 albums for 2009. You can find the album review plus show preview from the last time they were at the Brillobox in the link given.  There is also a great interview with Chris Crisci that we conducted the past year which you can find here. The point being, if you enjoy the music, they are even better live.

Trust by Old Canes

From the bio: Old Canes began in 2004 as a new project for Appleseed Cast front man Crisci. It was born out of a few acoustic melodies he had written and performed impromptu when Appleseed Cast was uncharacteristically asked to perform acoustically at an in-store performance in Europe. Inspired by a second creative outlet, and the reaction the fledgling songs received, Crisci began recording these and more, calling on a host of musician friends to fill out the parts. Old Canes’ debut, Early Morning Hymns, was released in July 2004 on Second Nature Recordings.

Take a listen to the posted songs and if you like be sure to enter for the ticket giveaway. If you don't win, still go to the concert. We promise you will not regret.
