The Hi-Fi - Brisbane, QLD
The Sound Painter Tour. Supported by Six Foot Hick, Rattlehand, Howlin' Rabbits, Rick Steward. Melbournes Dallas Frasca is pumped to announce the official release of her sophomore album Sound Painter.
With lead single All My Love still blasting across radio airwaves after taking out 3rd place (from over 16,000 entries) in the International Songwriting Comp, recorded in New York City with Australian producer Andy Baldwin (Bjork, Chrissie Amphlett, Living End, Kram, Cat Empire) at Rola Pola Studios in Brooklyn, Sound Painter has been a true labor of love for everyone involved.
But the results speak for themselves.
Indeed, from the comedic to the heartbreaking, the making of Sound Painter has been beset with challenges and journeys. Firstly, following a run of national shows to help pay for the record, Dallas and band mates Jeff Curran (guitar) and Peter McDonald (drums) arrived wearily home only to have all the takings from the entire tour stolen at Melbourne airport.
Enter fan based damage control with Frasca fans banding together and raising over $4500 for the band, $4500 that meant Sound Painter could actually be finished.
Then, when it was finished, it was stolen. That is to say upon returning from New York, the band held a listening party to pick the first single and the laptop with the only completed version of the album was stolen by someone at the party.
Long story short is that the laptop was returned with no police involvement after simultaneous mild heart attacks from all three band members.
From blowing audiences away at Byron Bluesfest a few weeks ago, catch Dallas and the band launching the album across a national tour of gargantuan proportions, doing what they do best.
