Much has happened since LAKE STREET DIVE released its latest album Side Pony earlier this year: the band was invited to play at the White House, was a music guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and on The Today Show, sold out 42 shows in 2016 throughout the United States, and were featured on CHRIS THILE’s hosting debut of A Prairie Home Companion, among many other high points.
The quartet’s live shows have long been widely praised. Billboard recently said that Lake Street Dive successfully combined “Amy Winehouse, Rita Hayworth and R&B charisma,” while Philadelphia’s WXPN/The Key said “Lake Street Dive played an incredible set …The crowd went wild,” Mountain Xpress said “They perform with absolute joy, their passion contagious,” and the Charleston City Paper called a show “serious fun.”
The band’s recent album Side Pony, which Rolling Stone called “irresistible,” was produced by Grammy winner DAVE COBB (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell). Upon its release the album was #1 on the Alternative chart and #11 on the Billboard Album Sales chart.
The title Side Pony takes its name from a song on the record that refers to a whimsical hairstyle, but it also serves as a metaphor for Lake Street Dive’s philosophy and personality as a band. As bassist BRIDGET KEARNEY puts it, “When we were settling on the album title, that one just stuck out to us as embodying the band’s spirit. We’ve always been this somewhat uncategorizable, weird, outlying, genre-less band. That’s the statement we wanted to make with this record: be yourself.”
