Richard Buckner & David Kilgour will team up for a co-headlining tour beginning August 16 in Los Angeles! Don't miss this opportunity to see two legendary songwriters and guitar "gods" share the stage! Also, David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights have just released a live video for the title track off their latest release, Left by Soft.
David shares some details about the video and his one-of-a-kind guitar:
"We were playing at the Empire in Dunedin, an old bar that only holds abut 140 people and was made famous by the old Dunedin Sound-ers. The guitar I'm playing is a hybrid—the neck is off an oldish Epiphone acoustic, and the body was made by a guitar dude called Rob Scott. One weird thing about it is that the pickups sit on rails, so I can move them to whatever position/sound I want. It has the sound of mountains collapsing, especially at volume."
