RISING BROOKLYN INDIE-FOLK ACTS LELAND SUNDRIES AND WILL LEVITH PLOT ACOUSTIC, DOUBLE BILLED NORTHEAST TOUR

LELAND SUNDRIES LAUNCHES DEBUT RECORDING ‘THE APOTHECARY EP’ WHILE LEVITH PROVES HIMSELF A SONGWRITER TO WATCH

Rising Brooklyn indie-folk acts Leland Sundries and Will Levith will plot a northeast acoustic tour this October. Leland Sundries will make its recorded debut October 5 with ‘The Apothecary EP’ (L’echiquier Records).

Joining him will be Brooklyn songwriter-to-watch Levith, who plays what he calls “folk for the punk-obsessed teenager in all of us.” He’s previously played at CBGBs Gallery and Pete’s Candy Store, among others, in NYC. His fans compare his music to Son Volt’s Jay Farrar, Damien Jurado, and Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon). Hear Levith’s music: http://www.myspace.com/willlevith.

Leland Sundries’ leader and songwriter Nick Loss-Eaton, who has drawn comparisons to James McMurtry, Lou Reed, and AA Bondy, will bring a resonator guitar and a collection of harmonicas.

Leland Sundries has already played in eight states. Time Out New York has praised the project’s “oddball storytelling with a lo-fi country sensibility” while the Boston Phoenix described the music as “The Band meets Lou Reed.” Loss-Eaton also has personal connections to several of the locales that the tour will visit: he grew up outside of Boston; his grandmother lives in Saratoga Springs where his grandfather served as editor of the Saratogian; and he lives in Brooklyn where the EP was recorded.

Recently, Levith scored a semifinals/confidence vote for his tune “You Are the One” from Grammy Award–winners The Zac Brown Band, as part of their song contest. Levith grew up in Saratoga Springs, NY.
