John Nolan

I think most of us know that John has a solo project. But if you didn't know, go check www.myspace.com/johnnolanmusic now! He did a few fan collaborations - fans sent him whatever music they had created and John added the lyrics/instruments he felt would go well with them - over the past few months and now they're up for free download at http://johnnolanmusic.bandcamp.com/ My favorite is Not To Let Go. So good!

The even more exciting news is that John's first solo album, Heights, will be released on October 27th, 2009 through Doghouse Records. The album was produced by Mike Sapone. There had been talks about John being on Brookvale Records (the Long Island based, Looney Tunes/Derrick Sherman label) and they previously had a September 1st, 2009 date for the album. That's not happening anymore. Doghouse Records is the label to bands The Honorary Title, Limbeck, Mansions and Say Anything. John played a few shows in June in the Midwest.

His first merch as a solo artist:

You can get it here. Or from John at a show near you.

Now he's on tour with Mansions and in August he goes on a short tour with O'Brother. I had the chance to go and see him play on the 25th at The Space in Hamden, CT. The show was really good, except very short. Camille accompanies him on guitar and keyboard and they're just cute.
