Started as a monthly in-the-round residency at LPR in January 2011, The Burgundy Stain Sessions quickly caught attention for guests such as Norah Jones, St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, Glen Hansard of The Swell Season, Beth Orton, Nico Muhly, Laurie Anderson, Justin Bond, the Dessner brothers, and too many other notables to list out here. As Doveman’s work as a producer, arranger, and keyboardist is taking up more of his time in 2012 (for example, producing the new records from Glen Hansard, Julia Stone and Trixie Whitley), he’ll only be flexing his curatorial talents for four Burgundy Stain performances this year.
Check out a clip from 2011 that includes Martha Wainwright, Justin Bond, Sara Quin (of Tegan + Sara), Norah Jones, Glen Hansard, Nico Muhly, Hannah Cohen and Rob Moose:
“This coterie of musicians shares a sense of restraint, intuitive dynamics and widespread references.” – The New York Times
“…an environment so relaxed it will seem like anyone could join in onstage…” – The Wall Street Journal

26-year old Thomas Bartlett is one of New York’s most in-demand keyboard players, collaborating & touring with artists such as Glen Hansard (Once, Swell Season), The National, Martha Wainwright, Antony, David Byrne, Bebel Gilberto & Yoko Ono. Doveman is Bartlett and his select group of collaborators. When listening to this music you should keep in mind artists such as Frederic Chopin, Cat Power, Keith Jarrett, Talk Talk, and Chris Whitley — unless you don’t know any them or are not a fan, in which case you should keep in mind Nick Drake, The National, Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and other, trendier bands whose music has recently appeared in car commercials. Doveman does not rehearse, but they sure can play.
