Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer return to Portland's revamped Alberta Street Pub to celebrate the release of their new album Maritime. The talented Jeffrey Martin will open the show!

#############################################################

The album had to be recorded on the island.

Internationally-acclaimed songwriters Dave McGraw and Mandy Fer's latest album, Maritime, captures a moment in time and place from their seaside home. Upon early release in Europe, Maritime charted at #1 on the EuroAmericana Chart for two consecutive months and ranked among the Best Albums of 2014 by The Telegraph, praising it for "...soulful songs, intuitive musicianship, and fine singing."

Tucked away in the current-swept inland seas between Seattle, Washington and Victoria, British Columbia lies an archipelago of serene islands where handcrafted wooden cabins are nestled into small farms, still beyond the reach of cell towers. Instead of traveling far from their natural solitude to record an album in a bustling city, McGraw and Fer called on their cohort of kindred musicians and producer to come together from across the country to make what they were calling their "island record." Recorded live in a home, at the end of a dirt road, amidst towering evergreens, a story of a patient island is told.

McGraw and Fer met in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rainforests of Washington. Fer's musical pulse led her to Spain, where she studied music, language and local culture.

Together, their exceptional vocal harmonies coupled with Fer's pioneering electric guitar work have become a vehicle to carry them around the world. The pair has honed their skills touring extensively throughout the US and Europe, sharing stages with fellow troubadours including Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, Gregory Alan Isakov, Kelly Joe Phelps, Birds of Chicago and many others. Winning over audiences anywhere from Alaska to Amsterdam, McGraw and Fer are on the crest of a building wave with the US release of their new album, Maritime, on March 3rd, 2015.

Maritime is rich in authenticity, navigating the waters of folk, indie-rock, and rootsy Americana. Compelling vocal harmonies grace every track, along with electric guitar, warm cello, driving rhythms and rich, wooded instruments. Maritime is both the asking of questions, and the subtle answers that an island reveals.
