DAVID CROSBY – ” David Crosby & the Lighthouse Band Live at the Capitol Theatre “

Posted: October 7, 2022 in MUSIC

David Crosby has announced the release of his first live solo album, David Crosby & the Lighthouse Band Live at the Capitol Theatre. The CD plus DVD package arrives November 25th, 2022, via BMG Records. The 16-song collection, recorded in 2018, draws largely from his late period renaissance as a solo artist and also touches on his career as a member of Crosby, Stills & Nash and CSNY. Listen to “1974,” a long-lost demo track that Crosby has had “sitting on my computer for 40 years,”.

The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is a co-founder of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Crosby is continuing to forge new paths in his eighth decade, Crosby again joins forces with Becca Stevens, Michelle Willis and Michael League, the three musicians known as the Lighthouse Band, who he’s been working with since 2016’s “Lighthouse” album.

Far from just a solo live album/DVD, working with his first new band since CPR (Crosby, Pevar and Raymond), Crosby and the Lighthouse Band quickly discovered their chemistry and took a collaborative leap during their 2018 tour together in support of Crosby’s seventh solo album, “Here If You Listen”.

This live set was recorded and filmed on the last night of the run at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The setlist includes “Déjà Vu,” “Guinnevere,” and “Woodstock.”

Vocalist/guitarist League shares, “I found the demo and I listened to it. I fell in love with this and I thought, you know, Crosby should finish this and he said, ‘Man, it’s been sitting on my computer for 40 years, so you know, whatever, sure’, so I sent it to Becca Stevens and she was like, ‘give me a crack at it’ – so she came in a couple of days later with four-part harmonies for the entire song, lyrics for the entire song, and we sat down that day and kind of fine-tuned things, and so 44 years after it’s… conception a song was born.”

Arriving November 25th, 2022 via BMG, the folk-rock legend and cultural force for over fifty years, continues his late period renaissance with the release of “David Crosby & The Lighthouse Band Live at the Capitol Theatre“.
