Doug Paisley In-Store - Friday, September 30!

Sorry about the last-minute announcement, but this came together very quickly...

We are very excited to welcome No Quarter Records recording artist DOUG PAISLEY for a special solo-acoustic in-store performance on Friday afternoon at 4 PM.

Doug hails from Toronto and burst onto the scene with a stunning self-titled debut album in 2009 (one that ranked among your Treehouse manager's top albums of that year). Of that album, one reviewer wrote: "An album of folk songs that represent the American malaise. Sure, Doug Paisley is Canadian (Toronto, to be exact) but so was Neil Young and four-fifths of The Band and that didn't stop them from tapping into the collective psyche of the continent. It would be bold of us to say this debut is on the level of the aforementioned, but truthfully it does recall an era of songwriting that was more simple, more honest, more modest. A time before ipods and the internet, when making a good album was simply enough."

Paisley followed the debut with last year's Constant Companion. Featuring guest contributions from Leslie Feist and The Band's Garth Hudson, among others, it was hailed as one of the best albums of the year by the likes of Mojo and Rolling Stone. Of Constant Companion, Time Out NY wrote: "The purest voice to come down the pike in ages. Songs of poetry, harmony and sweetness and the honeyed, craggy voice of the classic American country singer... "

Mr. Paisley will be opening for Megafaun at the Cedar Cultural Center later Friday evening. We highly recommend you come preview him at our place, then cruise down to the Cedar for the full glory later on!
