Chris Bathgate

MP3 >> A Flash of Light Followed By

I could tell I would like this song from its first Nick Drake -esque note, when I was immediately reminded of Black Eyed Dog.

...and the air got cold and the sky got dark / and I kissed your lips with the safety off...

Chris' third studio effort, A Cork Tale Wake, will be released June 26th. The growing attention as Ann Arbor's new folk hero has him casting a wider touring net than ever before and I think he just may catch the big one this year.

Conspicuously absent so far is a DC date, but there are several open days in his schedule after his June 17th show in Philly.

A resounding plea: Come on down this-a-way, man.
