Lacy J. Dalton Announces Summer Concert Schedule
Plus, Dalton also launches a GO FUND ME campaign to assist with next album, 'Dust Bowl Resurrection'
Grammy Nominated and Academy of Country Music award winner Lacy J. Dalton shows no sign of slowing down as she hits the road this summer, taking her music across the country. “What started off as a couple of shows, has turned into eighteen cities in seven states,” says Lacy J. “I am so excited to bring my music to my fans. I love to meet new people, and with my new project, Scarecrow, there is a lot of excitement happening right now for me.”
Along with adding several tour dates, Lacy J. Dalton has also launched a Dust Bowl Resurrection GoFundMe campaign to assist in raising funds for her next recorded project. By using this format, Lacy J. has created several tiers for her fans to donate funds and receive some amazing “thank you gifts” for their contributions. Whether it be a signed CD for one tier or a house concert for another tier, there is something for everyone, if you want to assist in getting this album created.
With the recently released four song EP titled Scarecrow, fans have been given a taste of the new music and are begging for more. This new blend of deep, edgy music has taken Dalton's songwriting in a whole new direction, sharing a side she's never shared before. Scarecrow was produced by Ira Ingber, who’s past experiences have included playing with Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Brian Wilson, and Captain Beefheart.
Dalton has surrounded herself with experienced musicians on Scarecrow, including bassist John Avila, also a renowned producer, composer, arranger, and vocalist whose credits include performing with Neil Young, Willie Nelson and Oingo Boingo, and drummer David Raven, who has recorded and toured with the likes of Keith Richards, Norah Jones, T-bone Burnett, Steve Earle, Shelby Lynne, and Lucinda Williams.
In early 2019, Lacy was pleasantly surprised to receive several awards from Strictly Country Magazine, including the President’s Choice award for best well written music for ‘Boundless Skies’ and the Pete Huttinger Award for Music Excellence for the CD ‘Last Wild Place Anthology.’
