Goin' solo

Catch Dan Ledwell at a solo show while you still can.

Dan Ledwell takes a little time for himself.
Dan Ledwell takes a little time for himself.

Between playing keyboard for In-Flight Safety, touring with other musicians (Jenn Grant and Kathleen Edwards) and producing, Dan Ledwell doesn't have a whole lot of time to himself. His debut solo album Two Over Seven came out in 2008 and has had sad-folk lovers pining for a follow-up ever since. "I was supposed to have a record out last summer but then a bunch of life things happened, life took over," says Ledwell. "I am putting out a new record at some point. It has been in the works for a long time. That's what happens when you go on tour with other people... you put yourself last." It's that sort of sweet self-deprecating remark that makes you want to strap him to a chair 'til the album's done, only it's obvious that this is his thing. "I think that's what I'll be doing mostly in the future---touring and producing," he says. "So, grab every opportunity to see me live that you can because you never know when it will happen again!" Deal.
