This fall, The Deslondes will tour through the Midwest, Northeast and South with special guests Esther Rose and Mechanical River. New Orleans songwriter Esther Rose sings songs about love, landscape, living life bravely and starting over. She started a band in 2015, working out arrangements for songs she wrote while riding her bike to work in the French Quarter, and adventuring through New Mexico summers. Mechanical River is the moniker for Charleston, South Carolina, native Joel Hamilton’s most recent musical project – a lo-fi folk masterpiece constructed with fuzzed out, crooning vocals, crunchy acoustic guitar arrangements, and drum machine percussion.
