Philadelphia native / New York resident Steve Gunn is coming home to celebrate the release of his new LP at Johnny Brenda’s on June 22nd. Having worked with several duo / trio line-ups over the years like GHQ and the Gunn-Trucinski Duo, Time Off marks the guitarist’s return to solo material (though several of his friends appear on the album as well). With a playing style that has been likened to John Fahey and inspired by Jack Rose, Gunn is at the forefront of the modern acoustic guitar music world and was recently signed to Asheville, NC label Paradise of Bachelors (which, like Gunn, has roots in Philadelphia).
Tickets and information for the 21+ show will be available here. In the meantime, catch Steve at Union Transfer on May 18th where he’ll perform a solo set and back-up Kurt Vile. Information for that show can be found here. Stream “Water Wheel” from Time Off here and watch a performance of “Old Strange” for Fader TV below.
