Tina Dico Brings New Music to The Bowery Ballroom Tonight

September 30th, 2014

Inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Danish singer-songwriter Tina Dico is most well know for what AllMusic calls “heavenly vocals and a poignant writing style.” After discussions with several labels around the turn of the century proved to be underwhelming, she formed her own label, Finest Gramophone to put out her first album, Fuel (stream it below), back in 2001. Since then, Dico (above, performing “Drifting”) has remained an important presence on the Copenhagen music scene and across Europe. Her most recent release, Whispers (stream it below), came out about a month ago to some fairly high praise, including from the Boston Globe: “As a new generation of smoldering young songstresses, including Lana Del Rey, Lorde and Banks, reaches a wide mainstream audience, it’s the perfect time for the reemergence of Danish singer-songwriter Tina Dico. Her latest studio effort is a richly rewarding, complex reflection on love, loss and acceptance.” See this big-voiced, engaging live performer tonight at The Bowery Ballroom. Josh Mease’s Lapland opens the show.
