(Colorado Springs, CO) - L.A.-based singer/songwriter Annette Conlon is hitting the road for her second Compassionette Tour, and performs locally at Pikes Perk, 5965 N. Academy Blvd., Suite 203, Saturday, June 24. Showtime: 7:00pm-9:00pm. No cover; all ages. Info: (719) 522-1432 or https://www.pikesperkcoffeehouse.com/.
Annette will be playing tracks from her critically-acclaimed debut solo album, Life, Death, and the Spaces Between, and songs from her new album scheduled for release in 2018. Her songs of/about compassion, social consciousness, human interaction, and animals, help raise awareness of animal cruelty and factory farming; her tour helps elevate this awareness with sponsors in fashion and food.
The current tour winds through North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee.
“I am so excited to share my love for animals and vegan-ism with folks across the country, to show them how easy it is to live more compassionately, from what you eat, to what you wear, and to help folks make the connection that our animal friends are not food,” says Conlon.
Husband Doug Conlon will accompany Annette on the tour, playing mandolin, banjo, and guitar, while providing background harmonies. Annette will be playing her Bedell Blackbird Vegan Parlor guitar and her Seagull Artist Studio Concert Hall guitar. Both instruments are made from sustainably-sourced woods and found tone-woods, and the Bedell is 100% vegan, containing no animal products. (Annette is endorsed by both Bedell and Seagull).
About Annette Conlon: The influences of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton can be discerned in her Conlon's debut, and Country Music People ranked Life, Death, and the Spaces Between #3 on a ‘Best Albums of 2015’ list, praising Annette Conlon as “a major talent” who “created a moving, intimate, magical melodic country trip.” Currently working with three-time Grammy winner Alf Rodenas on her second album, Conlon promises a “sweeter, happier, Ameri-Folk/Rock” effort that “delves ever deeper into my human heart.”
