About David Vandervelde

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, and songwriter David Vandervelde crafts '60s-influenced pop songs that bear the mark of legendary artists such as Marc Bolan, the Rolling Stones, Mickey Finn, and the Beatles. During the mid-2000s, the West Michigan native worked on numerous projects with fellow musician/engineer Jay Bennett (Wilco), then in 2007 he released a solo album called Moonstation House Band on the Secretly Canadian label. Waiting for the Sunrise arrived the following year. That same year Vandervelde left his long-time home of Chicago for Brooklyn, but quickly found himself stationed in Nashville after just a short time in New York. It would be six years before he returned with third album Shadow Sides, which came after both the death of long-time collaborator and friend Bennett and the dissolution of Vandervelde's marriage. The album was recorded completely on a cassette four-track. ~ James Christopher Monger
