Great Northern (new video + tour dates)

Last week I had the opportunity to sit and chat with Rachel, Solon, Ashley and Davey of Great Northern for a feature in a magazine that I’ll mention a little closer to press time. Not only is the band’s Trading Twilight for Daylight one of my favorite releases of 2007 (okay, maybe I’ll let the cat out of the bag now … unless something comes out between now and the end of the year that totally blows my socks off, this CD is going to grab the top spot on my “Best of 2007” list), the band members are really nice people and a lot of fun to talk to.

After spending the summer touring with The Comas, Great Northern now begins a run of fall dates with Robbers on High Street – a tour that’s sure to be amazing.

Random Great Northern fact: lead singer Rachel Stolte was on the short-lived CBS reality-game show “Fire Me, Please” and actually won $25,000.
