I spoke to Lizzie Powell from Land of Talk last week and she had some good stories to tell, one of them about Saddle Creek Records.
See, Powell lost her voice in the middle of touring and had to cancel several dates. One of those shows was in Omaha, where she headed anyway to see the folks at Saddle Creek.
I’ll let her tell the rest:
“When I did lose my voice, it was before the Omaha show. They invited me to the office and I was so worried that they were going to be so upset and we were going to have a big meeting about I don’t know what.
“They brought out a giant cake with the artwork of ‘Some Are Lakes,’ but it said ‘Some Are Cakes,’ and they brought me a get well card.
“They’re pretty rad as individualls. And their roster is incredible. They’re beautiful as people, and they have wicked senses of humor, which is great to me.”
You can catch Land of Talk on Thursday at Slowdown with Suuns and Conduits. Tickets are $10 at www.etix.com.
And don’t forget to register to win two tickets to Thursday’s show! I’ll be drawing for them tomorrow.
