US hammered dulcimer player Max ZT and English singer-songwriter Dan Whitehouse step out together from behind the glass in November for a series of special shows in a selection of the UK’s finest acoustic environments.
Both artists were selected to represent their countries in the international Global Music Match project back in May 2021, when Dan found himself in lockdown in Japan. The pair collaborated online - interweaving poetry and song with music which fuses multi-cultural roots and traditions - to create a truly compelling and innovative sound.
"Force of nature”, Brooklyn’s Max ZT, is an innovator of his instrument. His unorthodox playing and bold experimental style have led him to be described as the “Jimi Hendrix of hammered dulcimer” (NPR).
His band House of Waters have been called “One of the most original bands on the planet,” by NY Music Daily. This, Max’s first solo tour, sees him pushing the boundaries even further as he embraces the spoken word, soulful singing, and “lyrics that avert your gaze to the sky” (BBC Radio 6) of award-winning Black Country singer-songwriter Dan Whitehouse.
Signed with Reveal Records, across five solo albums Dan has gained a reputation as “a fine songwriter, a unique vocal talent and a talented multi-instrumentalist/ performer” (Maverick).
Alongside compositions from a joint EP release (available only at the live gigs on this tour) both artists will also perform solo material – Dan from latest release Dreamland Tomorrow (Reveal Records) and Max ZT from his forthcoming debut solo album Daybreak (Six Degrees Records).
