DOORS: 7:00 PM
SHOW: 8:00 PM
Join us as we welcome Pete back to the Sevareid House to share his new record with us!
Diversion Records Recording Artist Pete Mancini got his start as the frontman and primary songwriter of Butchers Blind, a critically acclaimed rock band from NYC. His debut solo album Foothill Freeway explored the Americana influences that were a hallmark of his work with his former band.
In 2018, he released a live EP, Alive in Patchogue. Since signing with Diversion Records, Mancini has released two singles, Pine Box Derby and DUI Blues. His second full length album is due out in 2019. Mancinis songs have received glowing reviews and radio airplay around the world, and they continue to win over hearts and minds wherever they are heard.
Over the years, Mancini has opened for acts such as Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, Pure Prairie League, Robbie Fulks, James Maddock, Marah, Steve Forbert, Larry Campbell & Theresa Williams, Kevin Gordon, and Iain Matthews.
We're thrilled to have award-winning (and LOCAL) artist HEATHER AUBREY LLOYD in to open for Pete. Recovering reporter, performance poet and fairy tale collector turned songwriter, Heather Aubrey Lloyd has co-fronted Baltimores ilyAIMY for nearly two decades.
After a stint backing Dar Williams, Lloyd started work on a solo CD. A Message in the Mess" is populated by colorful, larger-than-life characters: Hippie Tooth Faeries, Jackson Pollock reincarnated as a flock of pigeons and aspiring animal crackers. Lloyds stunning and emotive alto ("Melissa Etheridge, Carly Simon, Janis Joplin and Joni Mitchell blended into a spark plug with curly black locks," says one review), is pushed to new limits in inventive arrangements thanks to a cross-country collaboration with Reno band, The Novelists on mandolin, banjo, upright bass and delightfully bizarre percussion (yes, that really is recorded bubble wrap). "Mess" received the Director's Award for Album of the Year from the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, and the awards haven't stopped since: 2018 FreshGrass/No Depression Songwriting Award Finalist, 2018 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival MOST WANTED Artist, 2018 National Women's Music Festival Emerging Artist, 2017 Telluride Troubadour Top 4. Lloyd started off 2019 as the Grand Prize winner of the $10,000 Bernard Ebb Songwriting Award.
