The Last Town Chorus
The distorted cry of a lap steel guitar slices through the Brooklyn night. A voice sings with aching sweetness and strength. Caressing melodies are barbed with stinging solos. This is the sound of The Last Town Chorus – the revolving ensemble led by singer/writer/lap-steel-guitarist Megan Hickey – whose singular approach to music has beguiled writers from The New York Times, SPIN, The Washington Post, ELLE, Uncut, Sunday Times (UK), among countless others. Her live shows are nothing short of revelatory, bringing audience members to tears, turning critics into fanatics and building a fiercely loyal fan base in every city The Last Town Chorus visits. The new album, Wire Waltz, is even deeper, more powerful and more personal than the last and includes the wistful reinvention of David Bowie’s ‘Modern Love’ that was recently featured in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Released in the US and Canada by Hacktone Records onMarch 6th, 2007, Wire Waltz is comfort food for wounded souls.
