Artist Annette Conlon announces new tour dates
Bedell Artist Annette Conlon recently announced new tour dates for the end of the year. If you have an opportunity to catch one of her shows, we highly suggest it!
Annette toured the country from the mid-1990s through the mid-2000s with her Dallas-based alt-rock band Eden Automatic, opening shows for the B-52s, Duran Duran, Missing Persons, and the Pretenders, among others. When serious health issues forced Annette to face her own mortality, her music began a shift towards a more roots-based sound, resulting in a collection of her most personal musical storytelling.
Her solo debut, 2015’s Life, Death, and the Spaces Between, is rich with country-flavored melodies and lively instrumentation — accordion, banjo, cello, Dobro, guitars, mandolin, mellotron, and pedal steel — arranged alongside guitarist/husband Doug Conlon and multi-instrumentalist and producer Ted Wulfers. The 15 songs explore Conlon’s two-year journey through deadly illness, multiple surgeries, and a major brain injury. Songs like “First Suicide,” “Cedar Box” and “Faceless Angel” address challenging issues of loss, fear, faith and relationships — weighty matters, to be sure, yet she fashions silver linings from the darkest of clouds.
Most recently Annette has performed at Americana Fest, NAMM, The Bluebird Café, SoCal VegFest, National Animal Rights Day, Have A Heart Ranch, WorldFest, EarthDay LA, Chicago Veganmania, Mesa Music Festival, and more from California to Arizona, Colorado, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, and Chicago.
