Touring in support of his new album, Burlington, Vermont-bred indie folk musician, Henry Jamison, will headline a concert at the Top Hat for the first time on May 7, 2019. Coincidentally, Henry will also be opening for Guster in Missoula on Feb. 11.
Henry’s 2016 debut EP, The Rains, featured introspective lyrics, an undertone of electronic elements. and a strong melodic guitar backbone. In 2017, he released his first full length album The Wilds, which The Guardian called a “rare thing: an unshowy, literate gem that sounds a little like a lot of people – Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Leonard Cohen – but carves out a niche all its own.”
In an era in which the magnitude of cultural sickness is coming to light, Henry Jamison has had some time to reflect. On his second record, Gloria Duplex, the Vermont songwriter deconstructs ideas of masculinity from boyhood to adulthood and what it means to be a white, middle class male in America today.
Recorded over a two-week period in New York City during January 2018, Gloria Duplex (due out Feb. 8) features an all-star cast including producer Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, The National, St. Vincent,) string arranger Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers) and mixer Patrick Dillett (Rhye, David Byrne, Glen Hansard).
Tickets go on sale Friday, February 8th at 10AM at The Top Hat or online. All tickets are general admission standing room only with limited bench seating available on a first come first served basis. All ages are welcome. Additional ticketing and venue information can be found here.
