Levitt AMP Santa Fe Music Series at the Railyard presents: “BIRDS OF CHICAGO”
Known for their “near perfect Americana” (No Depression), JT Nero and Allison Russell had recently finished recording their sprawling rock and roll circus of an album, Love in Wartime, co-produced by Luther Dickinson ( North Mississippi All Stars), to be released next April on Signature Sounds. Nero had a suite of six songs that didn’t feel quite at home on Love in Wartime. Having recently relocated to Nashville, they decided to throw themselves their own welcome to town party by recording an acoustic E.P. at Steve Dawson’s Henhouse Studio. New friends like Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids, and Maya de Vitry of The Stray Birds got in on the fun, and the Birds emerged after a couple days with the raw, spontaneous, and warm American Flowers. The E.P. is Love in Wartime’s cousin from the country, and it rounds out Birds of Chicago’s offering of healing, communion and celebration of life in a dark and troubled time.
Presented by AMP Concerts, a nonprofit dedicated to enriching the cultural landscape of Northern New Mexico through musical experiences and community events.
The Levitt AMP Santa Fe Music Series will bring momentum to the revitalization efforts put into motion by the existing AMP Concerts series at The Santa Fe Railyard.
