The Dunwells are England’s latest organicly electric folk/britrock export. With eloquent harmonies and haunting melodies they are sure to delight Mobile music fans. They’ve already appeared on Letterman, Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza stages within just two years of their formation in Leeds, England.
The band is a family band with brothers Joseph and David Dunwell, cousins Jonny Lamb and Rob Clayton and longtime best friend Dave
Hansen. 92ZEW is currently spinning their single ‘I Could be a King’.
Meiko, who has also been to Mobile before with the ZEW Krewe’s Holiday Jam at the Saenger Theatre, is opening the show in support of her latest effort ‘The Bright Side’. Longtime ZEW listeners may remember her at the Holiday jam, she sang the song about the boyfriend that’s just a friend (but his girlfriend wouldn’t understand). A Southern girl in every sense of the word, Meiko was born and raised in Roberta, GA and her first gig was singing White Christmas for parishners in her Southern Baptist Church. She enjoyed it so much, she continued to sing anywhere and everywhere she could thereafter. Then made the leap to Los Angeles, signed to Myspace records that led to another record deal with Fantasy/Concord Records.
Martin Harley is a British singer-songwriter/slide guitarist (you may have heard him live on 92NEW). His band are renowned for their live concerts and the obscure instrumentation they use, which includes a Weissenborn guitar (Ben Harper is the only guy we know of that uses a Weissenborn), balalaika, cocktail drumkit, cajon and double bass.
