More about JD McPherson

JD McPherson’s Undivided Heart & Soul is out now on New West Records and available on vinyl, compact disc, and digital format HERE. Co-produced by McPherson and Dan Molad (Lucius, Here We Go Magic) and recorded at the Historic RCA Studio B in Nashville, TN, Undivided Heart & Soul is McPherson’s first studio album in nearly three years and follows his critically acclaimed Let The Good Times Roll (2015). The highly anticipated new album released October 6, 2017 and debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart – reaching #1 for Top New Artist Albums and Americana/Folk Albums, as well as #4 for Top Independent Overall Albums, #5 for LP/Vinyl Albums, #27 for Top Current Albums, and #44 for Overall Digital. Mojo Magazine praises, “...McPherson’s horizon has never sounded so open,” and the Associated Press exclaims, “JD McPherson’s ‘Undivided Heart & Soul’ deserves your undivided attention.” American Songwritercalls it “...McPherson’s third and best set to date” in a 4 out of 5 Star review, while PasteMagazine awards it an 8.1 out of 10 rating and notes, “...McPherson takes a slightly different approach, leaning harder on the first syllable of rockabilly.” Mother Jones adds, “JD McPherson has long been one of the more inventive artists with deep blues roots, thanks to a strong, expressive voice suited to a variety of genres and songs that tamper with familiar templates in subtly intriguing ways. On the exhilarating Undivided Heart & Soul, McPherson makes this implied versatility explicit, expanding his sonic palette to exciting effect...If the colorful pop tinges initially seem like a dramatic departure, McPherson never loses the greasy intensity that made him so compelling in the first place.” In celebration of the release, McPherson will appear on Conan next Wednesday, October 25; and he is currently on an extensive North American tour, which includes dates with support from Nikki Lane and Nicole Atkins.

CALL TO ARTISTS & VENDORS The Brooklyn Arts Center and Quilters by the Sea are thrilled to announce the second, amazing Piecework Quilt Show on Friday June 22, Saturday June 23 and Sunday June 24. 

With Quilters by the Sea, Wilmington’s superb quilting guild, we are once again creating and presenting the coolest quilting and fiber arts show in the Southeast.

BAC shows are renowned for being exceptional, full-scale, community events, with food trucks and the BAC cash bar. Attendance at our events, locally and regionally, is outstanding.

For Piecework 2018, we are seeking creative and innovative quilt and fiber arts vendors to sell their products and promote their businesses at this exciting show. Last year, Piecework took place in the magnificent, 1888 church and in the tented, BAC courtyard.

This year, the entire event will be indoors, in both the church and in the awesome Annex, our 1910, two-story brick schoolhouse, located directly behind and connected to the church. The Annex has an elevator, so access to the second floor auditorium is a breeze.

Welcome to our EyeCon One Tree Hill 6 event, this time returning to our roots in Wilmington, NC where we started it all!
