LOCAL “HOME-GROWN” CD RELEASE for INNOCENT MAN
With Guests: New Transit and Ophelia
Innocent Man plays honest Rock & Roll, fostered with Americana. Deep heartfelt lyrics that reflect shared life experiences, tasteful guitar, premier fiddle, driving rhythms, and graceful melodies. Innocent Man comes through as a breath of fresh air dabbling with acoustic echoes of the past. With an original sound that is hard to define, Innocent Man brings elements of genuine Americana or Outlaw Country, reminiscent of acts like Wilco, The Wood Brothers & Jonny Cash, along with glimmers of Classic-Rock such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top & The Band, combined with Jam-Band grooves resembling those of Phish, The Grateful Dead & Assembly Of Dust.
The anticipated release of Innocent Man’s first album, “Home Grown” is February 9th, 2013 at The Visual Arts Collective in Boise, Idaho. Local musicians and friends New Transit and Ophelia will be perofrming in direct support. The Album is a brilliant assortment of new and seasoned original cross-genre songs. Fans that have followed the band for years will delight in the new life the band has breathed into many of its familiar songs as they continue to progress their sound and push musical boundaries.
This Boise based 6 piece was cultivated by childhood friends sharing their love of music. Both Scott Sprague & Dan Burns grew up in McCall, Idaho and graduated in the same small class. Likewise, Tim Callender & Conlyn McCain were raised in the small town of Payette, Idaho. While in college the core members of the band became united and started to jam. Scott, Dan, Tim, Conlyn, and Josh Sears played together for more than a decade in various lineups and great bands around the Treasure Valley such as “Red House,” “Classic Ashley,” “the3hundred” and “Enormous G.” In 2008 the guys switched up instruments and song arrangements and founded a new band.
The project’s name, “Innocent Man” is a play on the fact that two of the members are lawyers. In early 2010, Lindsey Terrell first performed with the band at a winter festival in McCall. Since that time she has enhanced the sound of the group with her talented fiddling and vocal harmonies. Each member of the band has their own specific tastes in music, which makes for a unique and special sound that touches many different genres all within a single song. This special sound reverberates through all ages, and creates a common connection that sparks new friendships everywhere it’s heard.
Some notable events and festivals Innocent Man has performed are; The Idaho-Down (2012), The McCall Winter Carnival (2012 & 2013), The Summer Music Festival at Roseberry (2011 & 2012), Boise Heart Walk (2011 & 2012), Blues, Brews & BBQ’s Event (2012), Idaho Wing-Off Contest (2011 & 2012), Barley Bros. Winter Ale Festival (2012 & 2013) and McCall’s OKTOBERFEST (2012) in addition to many other venues around the Northwest. The band has shared stages with acts such as; Equaleyes, Jimmy Bivens, Riviera, Low-Bones, Shook Twins, Shaken Not Stirred, Jeff Crosby & the Refugees, Whiskey Creek, Ophelia & many more. Each ticket purchased for the release party will receive a complimentary copy of Innocent Man’s first album “Home-Grown.” Advanced tickets are available at The Record Exchange downtown and online through Brown Paper Tickets for only $7. General admission is $10 at the door. Artist music player, videos, and more information are available at www.ToentertainU.com.
