Bryan McPherson launches Kickstarter campaign for new album, “Wedgewood”

Posted by jaystone on Sunday, December 14, 2014 at 10:22 AM (PST)

When last we heard from California-via-Dorchester’s Bryan McPherson, he was making news by getting banned by Disney, forbidden from fulfilling his show-opener role as the Dropkick Murphys rolled through Anaheim.

McPherson has spent the better part of the last several years circling the country, and wrote and recorded a brand-new album, “Wedgewood,” while on the road. He’s now launched a Kickstarter campaign to help with the physical production and release of “Wedgewood” via his on label, OFD Records (Bostonians will dig the reference). Some pretty cool options available, particularly the chance to join McPherson on stage for a song, a chance to play roadie for a night, and a chance to actually develop your own record label, logo and all. Check out all options here.

McPherson’s last release was 2012′s “American Boy, American Girl” (State Line Records).

First off, this isn’t new. But since it’s the holiday season I though it would be a great idea to share it with you. Yesterday’s Ring is a not-so active country-folk band which feature Powernap‘s frontman Hugo Mudie on vocals. A fews years ago, the band has released a Christmas covers album entitled “Christmas Songs To Strip To” and luckily, the album was recently made available to stream on Bandcamp.

If you’re in for some folky Christmas songs filled with gravel-throated vocals, you might consider putting on that ugly Christmas sweater, pour yourself a cup of eggnog and stream the album below.
