The Best Valentines Mix-Tape Ever Made performed live by David Campbell, Lucy Michelle, Brian Just, Matt Latterell, and Friends
David Campbell is a fan, musician, record store clerk, record label staffer, and a 10-year staffer of KQRS and Drive 105’s “Homegrown,” and a long-time veteran of the Twin Cities music scene. Named Best FM Radio Personality by City Pages in 2010.
At 28, Lucy Michelle is a songwriter as serious as they come. Twin Cities natives will know her as frontwoman of gypsy-pop outfit Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, a raucous and eclectic six-piece. At home and on the road, Lucy has stood boldly amidst that chugging whirlwind of cello and accordion, stomping her foot and singing out fiercely over the top of it all. It’s a collaboration five years strong whose catalogue reveals an artist developing not only her craft, but also personally.
Brian Just is the leader of a Minneapolis 5 piece Psych-influenced pop group. A sunny and elaborate affair, artfully incorporating ’60s Folk Pop sounds reminiscent of Nilsson or Donovan. All cleanly laid over Just’s day dreamy, lazy-afternoon folk-rock tunes. By turns low-key and boot-stompin’, their versatile blend of folk are highlight by their signature harmonies.
Songwriter from Minnesota.
