Cordovas plus special guest St. Beaufort and Susto (solo) will play first Songpickr Americana Night
It is my pleasure to announce the first ever concert booked and promoted by Songpickr.
On July 12th 2018 CORDOVAS from Nashville, TN will play at Privatclub, Berlin with special guest and local Roots & Americana trio St. Beaufort from Berlin.
CORDOVAS debut album was recorded 2011 and came out 2012 in the US but was never distributed worldwide. In 2017 Rootsy Music from Sweden released the album for the first time in Europe and booked the band on a Europe tour.
I have seen CORDOVAS playing at the "TakeRoot" festival in the Netherlands last year and they blew me away. I am seeing something like 100+ shows every year and Cordovas easily ranked Top3 in 2017.
When I learned about their upcoming Europe tour and heard that Berlin was not on the tour schedule, almost no German shows were planned, I decided to do it on my own.
Check out one of their shows from Basement East, Nashville TN to get an impression what to expect:

Why You Should Pay Attention:
Already cult favorites in Nashville, Cordovas have built honorary home bases across the globe, thanks to recurring shows in Todos Santos, Mexico – where ringleader Joe Firstman runs the yearly Tropic of Cancer Concert Series – and a touring schedule that recently including headlining gigs in Sweden and a stateside run alongside the Turnpike Troubadours. The band's sound, though, is decidedly American. Caught halfway between Duane Allman's Telecaster twang, the Dead's hazy harmonies and the stoned swoon of California's folk-rock heyday, Cordovas wring new life from older influences, hoisting their freak flag high on their upcoming album, That Santa Fe Channel.
"We did everything live," Firstman says of That Santa Fe Channel, which was produced by the Milk Carton Kids' Kenneth Pattengale. "Even the harmonies were recorded together, with all three of us singing. We probably did 15 takes of the first song, 'This Town's a Drag.' Kenneth wanted it to sound as real and authentic as possible, and when I listen back, it gets better and better every time."
Their new, second album will come out in summer later this year and I am not promising you enough if I tell you it is fantastic. You will love it!
