Emma Hill and Her Gentlemen Callers to celebrate the release of Denali at Tap Root on August 16th.
Anchorage-based singer/songwriter Emma Hill will perform her new album, Denali, in its entirety on August 16th at Tap Root, supported by a full 7-piece backing band including members of The Whipsaws, Sweating Honey and Ghost Hands.
The evening will be divided into two separate shows – the first, featuring the new album, will be a sit-down dinner-style performance. The Super Saturated Sugar Strings will open the show with a performance of their new album, Heart-Shaped Leaves, followed by Emma Hill and Her Gentlemen Callers performing Denali.
The second show will feature another set from each band including older favorite selections and an open dance floor.
Denali, Hill’s fifth full-length album, was recorded this spring by producer Evan Phillips (The Whipsaws) and engineer James Glaves (Ghost Hands) in Anchorage. Hill’s longtime collaborator, Bryan Daste, also recorded tracks in Portland, OR. The album features many Alaskan musicians and themes, most notably the title track, an homage to Alaska’s most famous monolith. Though not officially released until October 7th, Hill has decided to give Alaskans early access to the album.
Tickets for either of the two shows are $10 apiece, or $15 for admission to both shows. Tickets are available at the Tap Root box office, (907) 345-0282, or online at taprootalaska.com. Tap Root is located at 3300 Spenard Rd, Anchorage, AK 99503.
