Land Lines, the band with whom I play, is pleased to announce that Misra Records and Denver's very own, Greater Than Collective (Illegal Pete's), will be re-releasing their most recent album, The Natural World, on August 21st, 2015.
Denver patrons of the local music scene may already know that earlier this year, Land Lines independently released The Natural World with the help of a Kickstarter crowd-funded campaign. By signing with Misra/Greater Than, the album will now be distributed nationally and throughout parts of Europe by Redeye Worldwide and licenced through Sub Pop Licensing.
Misra was founded in Dayton, OH, and is now currently managed in Pittsburgh, PA by Jeff Betten. The company is co-owned by mindful and caring musicians - Bryce Merrill, John Kuker, & Trevor Trumble - based in Denver and Cheyenne, WY. Misra has carried a legacy from signing notable past artists such as, Phosphorescent, Shearwater, Destroyer (Dan Bejar of The New Pornographers), R.Ring (The Breeders' Kelley Deal), Great Lake Swimmers, and Torres, just to name a few. Land Lines is the most recent addition to their current roster of artists.
Based in Denver, CO, Greater Than Collective is a non-traditional label that was started by Pete Turner of Illegal Pete’s, Virgil Dickerson of Suburban Home Records, and Andy Thomas of Tin Horn Prayer. Ben Desoto, the new label manager at Greater Than, has played an integral role in strengthening the newfound relationship between Misra and Land Lines.
As a part of their campaign of re-releasing The Natural World with Misra/Greater Than, Land Lines will perform at Denver's own Hi-Dive on Friday, October 23rd and will then follow Denver heroes, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, on a Fall tour through the Midwest and the East Coast.

On Thursday, May 28th, LAND LINES, a band with whom I play, will be performing original, arranged pieces with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. We are over the moon with excitement and disbelief. Please come hear us play. Click here for tickets and more information: Turn Over The Keys
In this innovative program, the Colorado Symphony turns over the keys to Boettcher to artists from Denver’s thriving local music scene to create a varied and original program of new music. Emerging Colorado artists Ian Cooke, Land Lines, and Megan Burtt will perform individual sets with musicians from the Colorado Symphony, each with a unique style, sound, and symphonic approach. Longtime Colorado Symphony collaborator Jay Clifford, leader of the seminal South Carolina-based band Jump Little Children, and Tom Hagerman of DeVotchKa will work with each artist to create original orchestral arrangements of their music for a full complement of string players, with Clifford also joining in on the collaborative performance.
