Door County native Matthew Burress will celebrate the Door County release of his new CD, The Fountain, at an intimate concert in the Door Community Auditorium’s (DCA) cozy Fireside Lobby on Feb. 23 at 7 pm.
The Fountain is the Minneapolis-based folk singer-songwriter’s first full-length solo album, which he recorded at Tangerine Studios in St. Paul with Randon Nelson, who grew up in southern Door County.
“You’ll hear topics spanning from the new-age issues of technology and social media addictions, to classic songwriter themes such as unrequited love or the inner monologue that encourages the nomad to finally and firmly plant roots,” said Burress of his album.
“Throughout my 20s, it was honest lyrics from a wide range of singer-songwriters that assured me I wasn’t alone in my wandering. It is my hope that The Fountain may provide a similar sense of clarity or ease of mind to, at the very least, a handful of people.”
Tickets for Matthew Burress’s concert are $17.50 per person, and advance reservations are recommended. The DCA box office, at 3926 Hwy 42 in Fish Creek, is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 pm. For more information, call 920.868.2728 or visit dcauditorium.org.
