DOWNLOAD: Ferraby Lionheart - Dear Corinne (MP3)


Ferraby Lionheart, the singer with the impossibly imaginary name, whose sweet and earnest voice captured music fans and critics alike, with songs about love, life, fairy tales and more, is re-emerging with promises of a new album. Lionheart released the critically acclaimed debut Catch The Brass Ring in September 2007. Eventually after many months touring and time spent scoring a film (starring Susan Sarandon and Anton Yelchin), Ferraby parted ways with Nettwerk Records, and left his home in LA on a journey through Scandinavia in search of inspiration for a new record, ending up in his childhood home of Nashville, TN. Ferraby has returned to the do it yourself methods that gave him his start, building a studio at home and self-engineering whatever sounds may come from the little red-brick house at the end of Sweetbriar Avenue.

For the month of February, Ferraby will take a break from recording and drive his (newly formed) band up to New York City, pile into a one bedroom Williamsburg apartment, and play Monday nights at Pianos in the Lower East Side. Lionheart and the band will be showcasing some songs from the forthcoming album, as well as old favorites." [PR]

That press releaes summed it up pretty well. Like Doug Gillard before him, Ferraby's four week residency is happening at Pianos. The first show is tonight, February 2nd. Somewhat hilariously, he goes on right after Lady Sovereign whose show was rescheduled to tonight from last week.

Ferraby also added a February 21st show at Music Hall of Williamsburg where he'll be opening for Noah and the Whale. Grab a new track above. All dates below...

I love this guy's music, but it's just impossible to take him seriously. I need a vacation.

I wonder if that meek-man-in-twee shtick gets him a lot of pussy.

tasteyourmaker, why the hell would you post a link to such a shitty website?

I misread Pianos strangely-designed site. Cross Pollination is tomorrow/Tuesday. Also Pianos' site has a mistake. Sharon Van Etten is not playing tomorrow (which I originally said was today).

(if you don't know what I mean, don't worry about it)

look at this guy's picture. then look at his name.

if we don't draw a line here, where will it stop?

the pants and the burlap table runner shawl are seriously ridiculous.

i think his music's pretty good, but refuse to support this artist until he puts on some real goddamned clothing.

i'll admit that his name is completely ridiculous, but so are 75% of the band names out there these days (what's with the fucking wolfs and bears and animals in every goddamnned name?). And i'll admit he's looking sickly thin and his clothes are silly. but i'll also admin that i goddamn love his music like a motherfucker. i have yet to hear a damn tune by him that i dont goddamn love, and there are only a handful of new-ish artists out there right now that i can say that about. but anyway go to his wikipedia page. he's a member of some strange LA religi-cult type thing (like the Moonies but not). so maybe that explains the name and clothes. doesnt explain why he wont eat a goddamn cheeseburger though.

Never heard of this guy before, but saw him and his band @ MHOW last Saturday night. I am so glad I came early. I loved his music instantly.
