MANKATO, MN

BIO

Good Night Gold Dust's 2016 debut studio EP shined a light on the Mankato-based indie-electronic quartet and found the band counted among the most exciting new acts in Minnesota, gaining praise from UK blog Clash Magazine, YVYNYL, and MPR's 89.3 The Current, among other outlets. GNGD has also shared stages with national and international acts such as The Rural Alberta Advantage, Gordi, HÆLOS, and Middle Kids. Their sophomore studio EP It Could Have Been You (produced by Brett Bullion) is a moving collection of songs both meditative and urgent that explores ideas of isolation, loss, and recovery. Featuring dual lead vocalists Laura Schultz and Colin Scharf, GNGD's dynamic live performance transforms the dreamscapes of their recordings into a powerful cinematic reality.

FREAQUE + THATSLIFE

FREAQUE is for the derelicts, the heretics, the tree stumps, and those who live on the fringes of society. A tattered voice, made of strung out words, hung to dry over broken chords on his mothers piano. This new venture from Gabriel Rodreick was created in his childhood dining room, on the piano he played for 11 years before a spinal cord injury took away his hands. In a wooden womb of darkness, he took what he had and rose above a society that constantly tells us we are not enough, that were only worth the possessions we own, the money in our bank accounts, and our body's abilities. We do not have to conform to societal standards to be valued as human beings. That is why he creates music and art.

 

A little more than one year after an accident left him paralyzed from the chest down, ThatsLife was born. During the empty nights alone in the hospital, max turned to sound to fill the gaps missing inside. The creation of music transformed into mental therapy that lifted Max from that sunken place. However, Thats Life isnt just the name of a musical act, its also a phrase that emphasizes acceptance of the things we cant change. Through music, Max hopes to inspire others to keep pushing through the painful struggle we call life, all while giving audiences a glimpse into his personal journey.

Gabe Burdulis w/ Elliott Blaufuss

GABE-burdulis-crescendo.jpg

Gabe Burdulis is a singer-songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. His roots began in Madison, WI where he spent most of his time playing at bars, staying out way too late for school nights. Burdulis began teaching himself guitar after he first picked up his fathers guitar in 7th grade. Writing, recording and performing became a deep passion early on, he started playing in multiple bands locally including playing guitar for “The Funky Drummer”, Clyde Stubblefield in his late years. Before graduating high school, Burdulis had already become a two-time recipient of the “Les Paul Launchpad Award” and won over ten “Madison Area Music Awards”.

After declining a scholarship to Berklee school of music he moved to Nashville at the age of 18 without knowing a soul, he dove into the music scene recording his first full length record titled, “Youth City”.
Since then, he has played iconic venues like the Bluebird Cafe and The Station Inn, he performed with Grammy Winning band Los Lobos at The Ryman Auditorium, and even caught the attention of Sheryl Crow when she attended his bands show in Nashville, TN followed by a post on her social media saying “They blew me away! Check them out!!”.

Burdulis has toured the country playing small venues to major festivals, including the world’s largest music festival “Summerfest” every year since he was 16. He has recently shared the stage with many different acts like The Fray, X Ambassadors, Cheap Trick, B.O.B. and Wynona Judd. He spent most of 2017 on the road with his duo, Future Stuff, opening for acclaimed guitarist, Doyle Bramhall II who went on to produce their full length record “For The Time Being” which came out in the summer of 2018 after their previous single quickly reached over 100,000 streams on Spotify .

Mixing blues roots and a love for pop melodies, Burdulis’ music has developed into a rock/americana style, paying dues to early influences like Cat Stevens and James taylor while also being influenced by more contemporary artists as well including John Mayer, Shawn Mendes and Donavan Woods. His lyrics are meaningful and sometimes witty with a strong guitar driven nature. His live shows are energetic yet intimate whether it be solo or with his full band.

QUOTE: “Gabe’s music has the acoustic pop power of an Ed Sheeran song with better guitar playing and a bit more country thrown into the mix. There’s something in the subtle finger pickings and vocal flourishes that wears both his Midwest roots and his new southern home proudly. Despite his songwriting power, Gabe doesn’t let his ego get in the way; he is an incredibly sympathetic songwriter, with songs about his grandmother and the failings of the modern dating age.” – Daytrotter

Burdulis just released his latest record titled “Late Night Drive” out now! Produced and recorded with friend and co-writer Mark Elliott. Stay tuned for more upcoming spring and summer tour dates! – Check it out on SpotifyApple Music or wherever you listen to music!
