New Sweden Playing Steel City on April 14th

Wilmington, Delaware based New Sweden, on tour in support of their first full-length album, The Mountain, will play an intimate performance Saturday, April 14th at Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, PA. Opening will be The Dave Spencer Trio, house band at Steel City. The all-ages show, which begins at 8pm, is $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Reserved Seating is also available for $17 or Reserved Seating w/ Dinner Entrée for $23.

Showcased at the 2011 NON-COMMvention alongside artists like Ben Harper, Bright Eyes, and The Head and The Heart, New Sweden's unique flavor of Americana, Folk and Indie Rock had people talking with WXPN's Program Director, Dan Reed, hailing them a "major discovery". The 5-piece outfit recognized for their energetic live performances mold their sound using a blend of traditional folk instruments (viola, banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, pump organ, bass, percussion) with a distinctly modern twist. The lyrics are sincere and powerful – sure to speak to any listener willing to lend an ear. Their refreshing sound has led them to numerous titles in the area including recently being named “Best Delaware Band” in the Tri State Indie Music Awards and champions of the 2011 Beta Hi-Fi Music Fest at World Café Live (Philadelphia).

The Mountain, released this past summer to a nearly sold out crowd at Wilmington’s World Café Live at the Queen, is the much anticipated follow up to the band’s 5-track EP released early in the year, Lover’s Lane. This album marks New Sweden’s first collaboration with Grammy Award-winning Sound Engineer Nick DiDia, known for his work with Bruce Springsteen, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam and Martin Sexton, among others. All ten tracks on the independent release, plus a digital bonus track, can be streamed at NewSwedenMusic.com.
