On Friday, May 8th, The Union will be celebrating their 10-year anniversary and the band and I couldn’t be more thrilled to play!
Since discovering The Union in 2006, it has been a constant source of community, support, and inspiration. Without it, my songs wouldn’t have had the chance to be heard, shared, or experienced on such an intimate level. Having the privilege to work closer with them over the past year has only deepened my appreciation for what they represent, the artists they support, and the leaders and students who work so hard each week to make The Union what it is.
Get your tickets here and we’ll see you there!
Hoping this finds you warm and well. I’m writing from the depths of hibernation, surrounded by tea, blankets, leftover chili, and the Twilight Zone. Though I’ve been laying low, you’ll be happy to know that I’ve started booking for spring/summer and can hardly wait to climb out of this hole and start playing again. Until then, here are some things worth mentioning:
1. You can now stream and share my new record “Sorrow Sings” over on YouTube.
2. I received my first magazine feature! Thanks to Elaine and the kind folks over at Barrington Country for your support.
3. Midwest Action named my song “Everything Kills” one of their top songs of 2014! Here’s what they had to say: “Chicago folk singer, Kevin Andrew Prchal released his latest record Sorrow Sings this year and with it came the single “Everything Kills”. The song is a perfect example of everything right with the genre from beautiful lyrics over sparse instrumentation to Kevin’s emotional delivery and the chug of his acoustic guitar.”
4. Thanks to Mark Rose and Bob Nanna, I recently joined Downwrite; a network where music lovers can connect with an artist and hire them to write & record a one-of-a-kind piece of music, which they provide the inspiration and direction for. Entirely original, entirely personalized. So, if you’re looking to have a customized song written for you and somebody you know, feel free to reach out!
