We are delighted to welcome back this local favorite to our studios on November 20th. He's doing a residency Wednesdays in November at the Cedar Lounge in Superior. We chatted with Parr about his latest, self-titled, album and heard some tunes.
Charlie Parr is back and better than ever with his new eponymous album that features both new writing and old crowd favorites. Released on September 27th, 2019 by Red House Records, Charlie Parr is his thirteenth album. The folk-blues artist is Minnesota born and raised and has spent much of his music career right here in Duluth.
This local favorite joined us in the studio on January 24. He released his album Dog, back in September and gave candid interviews about how his struggle with depression influenced the making of the record. He's currently doing a January residency Wednesdays at the Cedar Lounge in Superior and will take the stage the same night at 8.
Mattson has left his mark all over the Minneapolis, Duluth, and Iron Range music scenes through the years in bands including the Glenrustles and Ol' Yeller and as a producer and owner of Sparta Sound Studio. His latest project, which also features his partner Germaine Gemberling, releases its third album, Aeroplane Mode, on Friday, October 13 at the Cedar Lounge in Superior. We got a preview when the band stopped by for a session that same afternoon at 2:30.
