Amanda Gervasi Album Release with Pete Miller, Jesse Pilgrim
Saturday 07.24.2010, Doors at 8:30 PM, Starts at 9:00 PM, $8, 18+
Amanda Gervasi, born in Houlton and raised in Hampden, landed back in the state after a few soul-searching years of college in Nova Scotia. Up until that point, her guitar was a cumbersome piece of baggage, coming with her to college and even crossing the ocean to Kenya. Within a short year returning to Maine, however, Amanda had a slew of reputable shows under her belt and in late 2009 she became the newest member/lead singer of Gypsy Tailwind, recording two albums simultaneously and doubling her performance schedule. Tonight she celebrates her debut solo album "Merry the Ghost". Pete Miller blends indie and folk with songs exploring and unmasking human tendencies. His record "Shake the Dawn" recorded and co-produced with Eric Bettencourt at Shadow Shine Productions inspired the Portland Press Herald to write: "Cellos, acoustic guitars and brushy drums dominate as though it were high time someone went back to a more honest, transparent sound." Local folk troublemaker Jesse Pilgrim opens the night.
