Los Angeles-based guitarist and singer-songwriter Annette Conlon is on the road again with her Compassionate Tour. In fact, as one of the pre-tour events, she will be performing a free concert at Beverly Hills’ Vampire Lounge in the Tasting Room on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.
This free gig will be part of the Summer Blood Bash (Blood Drive) & Mini-Music Fest before she heads out for the East Coast. Presented by Sound Majesty, with a blood donation mobile from Cedars-Sinai Hospital, the charity event will run from 2 p.m. to 12 midnight. Conlon’s 8 o’clock performance will be highlighted by numbers from her critically-praised debut solo disc titled Life, Death, and the Spaces Between.
Conlon’s artistic efforts often indicate influences from such other artists as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Johnny Cash. Her platter was slotted in at number three on Country Music People’s “Best Albums of 2015” list and reported Conlon to be “a major talent” whose initial audio offering is an “intimate, magical melodic country trip.”
According to a recent press release, the concert will also include some songs from her new, upcoming 2018 album, too. She will also often be accompanied by her husband, musician and singer-songwriter Doug Conlon. Her material includes songs focused on animals, compassion, human interactions and issues of social consciousness which she says she is “so excited” to be able to once again share.
Doug Conlon, who provides banjo, guitar, mandolin and background harmonies will also appear with her. The Compassionate Tour will include shows in such places as Alabama, California, Georgia, and Tennessee. It is presently set to close in September in Colorado but changes and additions are always possible. As to her upcoming new release, Conlon concluded that it would feature “sweeter, happier, Ameri-Folk/Rock” songs that will “delve deeper into my human heart.”
