If two people mine the same territory long enough, they’ll eventually meet. Johnny Dowd and Melle de Boer have been digging deep into the human soul for a long time. Like Orpheus, they go to the underworld and make beautiful songs about their journeys. Now their journeys are coming together in a collaborative performance.

They will tour the Benelux and the UK as a double bill in January and February 2018. They’ll play their songs, old songs, new songs. It won’t be a sleepy singer-songwriter night. It will be electric, chaotic, hard and ugly, soft and beautiful. They’ll combine their individual stories to provide a new, unforgettable, and unique performance.

They’ll each do a set of their own songs, then together they will perform a set of traditional songs interpreted in an unconventional way. Johnny Dowd will be joined by Mike Edmondson (vocals, guitar), and Melle de Boerwill be joined by Suzanna Ypma (vocals, drums, synthesizer).

They are both releasing new albums. Melle comes to terms with his parents’ separation, and Johnny does his unique take on old American songs. Both albums are traditional, but not corny. Full of electricity and necessity.
