Buena Vista Album Release- David Lawrence & the Spoonful
Thursday, 10/06/2022, 07:00 PM
The Lariat, Buena Vista
Don’t miss out on David Lawrence & The Spoonful’s official Album Release Show! Over 2 years in the making, ‘Lean-In’ is a true passion project. For anyone that has seen David perform it’s no surprise that this album is brimming with heart, soul, and grit. With a busy touring and performance schedule on the front range & beyond, David has made Buena Vista a second home. The genesis of the band had humble beginnings with a causal Monday night performance at the Wesley Rose in the Surf Hotel between David, BV local and Rapidgrass violinist Coleman Smith, and upright bass virtuoso Gary Sloan. Since then they have added drummer Glenn Austin, collaborated with some of the best musicians in Colorado, and blossomed into one of Colorado’s most exciting new bands.
Their debut Album ‘Lean In’, produced by Banshee Tree frontman Thom LaFond, is a collection of Original music spanning the diverse genres that have influenced David throughout the years. From down-home blues to roots Americana, touches of old school country and even his deep influence from gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt all shine through. The title track ‘Lean In’ is a song David wrote for his wife Yuko. It’s about young love, the butterflies you feel when you have to take a chance. You have to take that risk and hope that when you lean in for that first kiss, that special person is going to Lean back. In a larger way, Lean In is about dealing with adversity in life and not running! It’s realizing that the best way to confront hard times is head first. Becoming a new Father (this year!) and putting out a full-length album is a test for David to Lean into the challenges ahead of him.
Join David Lawrence & The Spoonful for their kick-off to his new album and CO release Tour right here at The Lariat. This is a true community event featuring local special guests. See you at the Rope!
