DAVID VANDERVELDE THE MOONSTATION HOUSE BAND LP
David Vandervelde serves to remind us that the truest, most primal and
addictive properties of rock n' roll are ageless. This Chicagoan started
recording this debut full-length at age 19 yet shows the maturity and swagger of
a man much longer in the tooth.
The Moonstation House Band album captures the highlights from Vandervelde's two
year immersion in Jay Bennett's Clubhouse - as Vandervelde refers to the studio
in Chicago - where he isolated himself to record this record virtually on his
own, using the former Wilco multi-instrumentalist's studio as a big toy
instrument. He enjoyed access to much of the same gear as used on Yankee Hotel
Foxtrot and Being There. Self-taught on guitar, drums, bass, piano, synth and
other studio tools, the listener can hear that Vandervelde is an adventurous
artist, who embraces classic rock songwriting and whose spirit is just banging
at the door to get unleashed.
Vandervelde worked with award-winning string arranger David Campbell and
engineer Steve Churchyard for three songs, Corduroy Blues, Wisdom From a Tree,
and Moonlight Instrumental.
