CARMEL, IN— The Warehouse presents Maiden Radio, a powerful trio of Kentucky musicians Cheyenne Mize, Joan Shelley and Julia Purcell on Saturday, June 13th at 8:00 PM at 254 1st Ave SW, Carmel, IN. Tickets are $15.00 in advance at liveforthemusic.com and $20.00 at the door. Doors will open at 7:00 PM. All-Ages are welcome. In collaboration with the gallery walk event happening in the Arts & Design District, local musicians Andra Faye and Scott Ballantine will be opening this show across the street at the Indiana Design Center from 5:30-7:30 PM.
Maiden Radio is Julia Purcell, Cheyenne Mize & Joan Shelley. The band hales from Louisville, Kentucky. They’re an old-time trio, favoring traditional songs from their home state, re-arranged for 3-part harmony (and three of the loveliest voices you may hear). While showing a clear reverence and love for the great singers of the past, their music is timeless & beautiful, and the original compositions played at their shows (and that are occasionally on their recordings) are indistinguishable from the tunes people have been listening to for ages & ages. – maidenradio.com
Cheyenne Mize, who released the critically acclaimed Among The Grey (Yep Roc) in 2013, came onto the international scene for her work with Bonnie Prince Billy on his 2009 release Among The Gold. From there she worked with Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore on their 2010 collaboration Dear Companion (Sub Pop). It was during this tour that NPR featured Mize in its “Discoveries of SXSW 2011”. October of 2010 saw the release of Mize’s debut album Before Lately (sonaBLAST! Records), followed by EP We Don’t Need in 2011. Her music has garnered favorable reviews from The New York Times and NPR’s All Songs Considered. In 2013, she performed songs from Among The Grey on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts series.
Joan Shelley released her second album Ginko on the Ol Kentuck label with an all-star backing band including Ben Sollee, Cheyenne Mize, Daniel Martin Moore, Dan Dorff, Jr. 2014 saw the release of her latest album Electric Ursa, which gained positive reviews from NPR, The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and The Guardian.
