If you ever want to make somebody your super-BFF times infinity, touring across the U.S. together is a good way to go about it. That’s what happened to like-minded singer/songwriters Anaïs Mitchell and Rachel Ries, who would often perform on stage together during their joint tour, adding harmonies and instrumental accents to each other’s tunes.
So it comes as little surprise that country e.p., a five-song collection of Mitchell/Ries songs, will be released on 7" vinyl and CD come September 2. According to Mitchell, “It’s a snapshot of our friendship – a chance to make music together and to honor some of our friends while we’re at it.”
See the two artists perform together on their upcoming tour, including a September 12 in-store gig at the brand-new Newbury Comics in Boston (North Market Place building at Faneuil Hall).
Making beautiful, DIY music together – that’s what friends are for.
