Camper Van ConnollY-THE DRIVEWAY CONCERTS- TOUR 2022
Camper Van Connolly: The Driveway Concerts-Part 2
Last summer I played shows from DC to Rochester to downeast Maine. Everyone one of them was different, and everyone fun. With my mobile sound system camper I played and DJ’d my way through lighting storms, cicada invasions and a golf ball through the windshield. Solo and band shows were held on lawns, porches, driveways, parapets, in garages, and public parks. The occasions: outdoor house concerts, block parties, birthdays, sword swallowing competitions and mud wrestling after parties.
'Malecon' Video from album 'Invisible'
Weathervane Records is proud to announce the release of Kevin's 11th album- 'Invisible'. Twelve new original tunes, recorded during the pandemic make for a unique piece of work at an interesting and pivotal period. 'Invisible' is a movement into a new phase of life with grown up kids, new opportunities and time to explore. Half of the songs were written pre-Covid and half during. And the songs cover a broad spectrum. The title cut ‘Invisible’ is a talking blues memory of an old friend. The Cuban influenced ‘Malecon’ is written from the perspective of an expat desperate for connection. ‘Kitchen Walls’ is about the marking of time in a family's life. And 'Lost' captures a feeling we all know with a subtle resolution.
All songs were recorded, mixed and produced by Kevin in his basement outside of Boston with tracks floated in from Frank Corby (drums) in Australia, brother James Connolly (fretless bass, toy piano, banjos etc.) in Santa Barbara and many other very talented musicians who lent a hand during this challenging but creatively rich time- including Jeff Allison, Niall Connolly, Todd Thibaud, Frank Arthor Drake, Sarah Mendelsohn, Scott Corneille, Joe Kessler, and Chris Rival (who also mastered it).
'Invisible' is available for download here, as a limited run CD and on all major streaming networks including Spotify, Amazon, and Apple.
