ITS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, but Kansas City’s LISTENER is finally bringing their unique brand of ‘Talk Music’ to patient fans in Australia and New Zealand this Sept/Oct as part of the now sold out Yours & Owls Festival, and doing a headline run of their very own
Beginning in 2002 as a solo act the band Listener has evolved over the years into a full fledged rock and roll band, and has toured the world over playing their brand of Talk Music. Based out of Kansas City Missouri with Dan Smith on vocals and bass, Kris Rochelle on drums, and Jon Terrey on guitar. With thought provoking stage banter, music that keeps your mind busy, and words that quickly take hold of your heart, Listener is a near perfect balance of what words and music are supposed to be.
Their latest record ‘Being Empty: Being Filled’, is an incredible collection of songs, each a mini-biography of a notable inventor/creator from history.
Produced by Josh Scogin (Norma Jean/The Chariot/‘68), ‘Being Empty...’ is a much heavier record than their previous releases, but no less emotional and engaging than their cult favourites - TIME IS A MACHINE (2013), WOODEN HEART (2010), & RETURN TO STRUGGLEVILLE (2009).
